Friday: Majid Jordan at Emo’s. Jordan Ullman and Majid Al Maskati’s dreamy R&B duo is one of the most promising of the many Drake-ish acts from the Toronto rap kingpin’s October’s Very Own label. The group is best known for co-producing and performing on Drizzy’s hit “Hold On, We’re Going On,” and the track’s anthemic vibe echoes through their own soulful pop releases, including last year’s very solid album “The Space Between.” Stwo opens. $29-$31. 8 p.m. doors. 2015 E. Riverside Drive. emosaustin.com. — D.S.S.
Saturday: Jose Gonzalez at Long Center. When Gonzalez, a Swedish singer-songwriter and classical guitarist of Argentinian descent, played the Austin City Limits Music Festival in 2015, he won over the crowd with quietly beautiful sounds in the midst of outdoor-fest cacophony. The Long Center is a more natural venue for appreciating his art. Opening the show is Bedouine, the artistic moniker of Azniv Korkejian, who strikes a similar chord with the adventurous folk tunes on her acclaimed 2017 debut album. $29-$69. 8 p.m. 701 W. Riverside Drive. thelongcenter.org. — P.B.
Saturday: Jay Farrar Duo at 3Ten. One of 2017’s best touring shows was a sold-out Scoot Inn performance by Son Volt, the band Farrar has fronted since leaving alt-country trailblazers Uncle Tupelo in the mid-1990s. Farrar returns with multi-instrumentalist Gary Hunt for a more acoustic affair that will cover material from the whole of his career, from Tupelo and Son Volt staples to songs from his solo records and the “New Multitudes” album of Woody Guthrie lyrics set to music. $22-$25. 8:30 p.m. 310 Willie Nelson Blvd. 3tenaustin.com. — P.B.
Sunday: Posies at Cactus Cafe. When they rose up as teen wonders in late-1980s Seattle, Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow were like the grunge antidote. Although they could rock out with plenty of energy onstage, their music was deeply rooted in classic pop, and it stressed the natural beauty of their vocal harmonies. As such, this acoustic show provides a fine chance to hear their music in its purest element. Over the years, the two became key members of the reconstituted Big Star, and Stringfellow toured as an R.E.M. sideman for years. But they’ve always returned to the Posies on occasion, and a recent series of reissues by Omnivore Recordings had given new life to the great records they made in their younger days. $25. 8 p.m. 2247 Guadalupe St. cactuscafe.org. — P.B.
