Wednesday: Jack White at Austin360 Amphitheater. His latest album, “Boarding House Reach,” is an insane mix of thrash funk, rap rock and the gutsy garage rock we know and love. There are hits and misses, but it’s an interesting collection from an artist who’s constantly evolving. He debuted the album live with a series of intimate gigs in London and the reports are promising, but if you go, prepare to stow your phone. White ejects fans who attempt to record him. $40-$89.50. 8 p.m. 9201 Circuit of the Americas Blvd. austin360amphitheater.com. — D.S.S.
Wednesday: Lloyd Cole at 3Ten. There have been lots of entry points into Cole’s work, from his 1980s rise in Britain fronting the Commotions, to 1991’s orchestral-rock masterwork “Don’t Get Weird On Me Babe” after his move to New York, to his later collaborations with Jill Sobule in the Negatives. For me, it was 1995’s “Love Story,” one of the great acoustic folk-pop albums of its time. He’s released just a couple of records this decade, but he has plenty to draw from in his live shows. $21-$25. 8 p.m. 310 Willie Nelson Blvd. 3tenaustin.com. — P.B.
Thursday: Curtis Roush at Barracuda. Written largely in the West Texas desert, Roush’s “Cosmic Campfire Music” reflects those wide-open environs with spacious production that leaves plenty of room for the music to breathe. Touches of the psychedelic rock Roush plays with Bright Light Social Hour are evident here, but the acoustic foundation of mesmerizing tracks such as “Polestar” and “You Already Got Me” suit his tuneful arrangements and plaintive tenor vocals well. $12. 9 p.m. doors. 611 E. Seventh St. barracudaaustin.com. — P.B.
