David Bromberg at One World Theatre. An extraordinary session guitarist whose Austin ties include recording with Jerry Jeff Walker, Willie Nelson and Doug Sahm, Bromberg has also released more than a dozen records of his own, connecting the dots between blues, bluegrass, country jazz and more underneath the broad Americana umbrella. His latest Appleseed Recordings collection, “Only Slightly Mad,” traverses a fascinating tracklist of covers, from Blind Willie Johnson to David Wiffen to Carter Stanley, while adding a few choice originals at the end. $25-$93. 8 p.m. 7701 Bee Caves Road. oneworldtheatre.org. — P.B.
