Listen to artists playing around town this weekend (except, y’know, the ones at ACL Fest) in our This Weekend in Austin Spotify playlist, updated every Wednesday.
Andre Williams, Renaldo Domino at Continental Club. A pair of vintage Chicago soulsters will light a fire under the CC crowd. Forget about getting a beer at the back bar because Clara Que Si is going to be dancing onstage all night. Williams recorded the classic "The Monkey Speaks His Mind," but is better known today for his filthy, funky stuff. 10 p.m. $10-$12 1315 S. Congress Ave. www.continentalclub.com.
