The Suffers at Waterloo Records. With an intro by rapper Paul Wall, a smoky interlude featuring Bun B. and the gut-wrenching track "After the Storm," which uses slow burning love as a salve for any residual ache from Hurricane Harvey, "Everything Here," the new release from the Gulf Coast powerhouse, feels like a love letter to Houston, the band’s hometown. It also showcases the band’s versatility as they move easily from simmering soul to jazzy variations to funky dance numbers with Latin flair. 5 p.m. July 23. Free. 600 N Lamar Blvd. waterloorecords.com. — Deborah Sengupta Stith

"Playpen" at Fallout Theater. The connection that forms between audience and participant is a great example of what makes Austin comedy great. This is a rare show where literally every joke is new, a comic’s most vulnerable moment. Maybe the joke will end up on Comedy Central or die the death of a million groans. You bear witness to it all as hosted by Nikita Redkar and Elizabeth Spears. Did we mention it’s BYOB and pay what you want? 8 to 9 p.m. July 24. 616 Lavaca St. eventbrite.com/e/playpen-seasoned-stand-ups-fresh-material-tickets-44541263117. — Brently Heilbron
