“Texas Radio Live” with Hal Ketchum and Mike Stinson at Guero’s Oak Garden. Not many Central Texas residents are official members of Nashville’s legendary Grand Ole Opry, but Hal Ketchum is among them. The ’90s country hitmaker resurfaced last year on Music Road Records with “I’m the Troubadour,” his first album in six years. Both Ketchum and the other act on this weekly Sun Radio fundraiser, Houston honky-tonker Mike Stinson, also have spent time behind the drums, though they’ll be out front here. Free (donations accepted). 6 p.m. 1412 S. Congress Ave. guerostacobar.com.

They’re at the Parish with opening act Seoul. … Top local bands in action on Thanksgiving Eve include Uncle Lucius at Threadgill’s South, Nic Armstrong & the Thieves at Hole in the Wall and Clyde & Clem’s Whiskey Business at Stay Gold. … Acoustic picks include Slaid Cleaves and Johnny Nicholas at the Saxon Pub, Eric Hisaw and Warren Hood at ABGB and Elsa Cross and Ricky Stein at the White Horse.
