Friday: Robyn Hitchcock and Emma Swift at 3Ten. Find the version of British legend Hitchcock and Australian ingenue Swift singing the Psychedelic Furs’ “The Ghost in You” at a Nashville record store on YouTube, and you’ll be hard-pressed not to want to see them together in person. This tour syncs up with the release of their new collaborative 7-inch “Love is a Drag.” It’s listed as a Hitchcock headlining show with Swift as the opener, but expect a good deal of collaboration. $23-$25. 9 p.m. 310 Willie Nelson Blvd. 3tenaustin.com. — P.B.
Saturday: Ray Wylie Hubbard’s Birthday Bash at Paramount. Yeah, Ray Wylie does these every year, but turning 70 is kind of a big deal. He reflected upon those years in his recent book, “A Life, Well, Lived,” and he’s still living it up, with last year’s “The Ruffian’s Misfortune” rivaling the outlaw-country pioneer’s best work. $25-$42. 8 p.m. 713 Congress Ave. austintheatre.org. — P.B.

Saturday: Azizi Gibson at Empire. Rapidly rising rapper Azizi Gibson was born in Germany and raised in Thailand and he’s signed to Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder label. The combination gives him a worldly outlook and lush production with a cutting-edge, avant-garde jazz aesthetic. $12-$30. 8 p.m. doors. 606 E. Seventh St. empireatx.com. — D.S.S.
