Jo Lawry, Judith Hill and Lisa Fischer in “Twenty Feet from Stardom,” a documentary about backup singers.

Four shows at Strange Brew. One of a handful of local music venues that regularly books multiple shows every day, the South Austin coffeehouse often serves enough quality fare for an extended outing. This night is a perfect case in point. Come early for a 5 p.m. show by the first-rate Nashville-by-way-of-Houston singer-songwriter Mando Saenz, with Aubrie Sellers opening ($6). At 7 p.m., the Barbara Nesbitt Band features the latest musical forays of the former Whiskey Sister ($10). Strange Brew consistently serves as a choice venue for local acts celebrating CD releases, as melodic quintet the Coordinates will do at 9 p.m. for their new self-titled album ($3). Closing things out at 11 p.m. is singer-songwriter Anthony da Costa, a venue favorite who also plays with Jimmy LaFave and others ($6). 5326 Manchaca Road. strangebrewloungeside.com. — P.B.
