Ted Hawkins tribute album release at Waterloo Records. Hawkins, a folk-blues songman with a singular presence and style, left this mortal coil 20 years ago, but he left behind a treasure trove of material that more than a dozen artists have remade on “Cold and Bitter Tears,” a tribute disc due out this week on local label Eight 30 Records. Helping to celebrate the occasion are four Austin artists who took part: James McMurtry, Kevin Russell, Ramsay Midwood and Randy Weeks. Free. 5 p.m. 600 N. Lamar Blvd.
