Here’s what’s happening in the Live Music Capital of the World this week.


OUR TOP PICKS


Friday: Brockhampton at ACL Live. After a rocky 2018 that included the ouster of co-founder Ameer Vann following allegations by several women of sexual misconduct, the hip-hop boy band with roots in San Marcos took a brief hiatus to regroup. The 13-piece crew returned to the scene in late August, with the release of a new full-length, "Ginger." Despite being conceived as a summer album, it’s not a light and breezy affair. The group delves into mental health issues, the political climate in America and each man’s struggle to find himself. But with buoyant bangers like "Boy Bye" and introspective love jams like "Sugar," the album doesn’t get bogged down by the darkness. Slowthai and 100 Gecs open. $49.50-$65. 8 p.m. 310 Willie Nelson Blvd. acl-live.com. — D.S.S.


Friday-Saturday: Utopia Fest at Reveille Peak Ranch in Burnet. In its second year at this location since moving from its nine-year home in the southern Hill Country, Utopia Fest features more than two dozen acts across three days, most of them playing Friday-Saturday after a Thursday-evening kickoff party. Friday’s performers include Brownout, Toubab Krewe and the Deer; Saturday’s big-draw headliner is Shakey Graves, with Son Volt, Jackie Venson, Israel Nash and Erika Wennerstrom also in the mix. Ticket prices range from $109 for a Saturday-only pass and $119 for Friday-Saturday to $519 for a VIP full-weekend pass. Camping also is available as an add-on. 105 County Road 114, Burnet. utopiafest.com. — P.B.


Friday-Saturday: Seismic Dance Event at Austin American-Statesman. Headliners for the second edition of the boutique electronic music festival are Testpilot (the human-headed techno alter ego of EDM star Deadmau5) and Swedish DJ and producer Cirez D, aka Eric Prydz. But the big highlight for your humble Austin360 staff (who may or may not be ordering a plaque to commemorate the occasion) is actor Idris Elba, who will do a DJ set on Saturday. The two-stage bash, produced by Austin-based RealMusic Events, takes place in the Statesman’s parking lot and warehouse and features more than 25 artists from around the world who play techno, house and underground dance music. $139.99 single-day pass, $229.99 two-day pass. 1 p.m. gates. 305 S. Congress Ave. seismicdanceevent.com. — D.S.S.


Saturday: Gear Daddies at 3Ten. Hailing from the other Austin — Austin, Minn., that is — the Gear Daddies left a lasting mark with a few brilliant roots-based rock & roll records in the late 1980s and early ’90s. Hockey fans will know them from "Zamboni," a hidden bonus track that became a crowd-favorite during ice-clearing breaks in rinks across North America (and on the soundtrack of two "Mighty Ducks" sequels). Frontman Martin Zellar continued performing and recording after the band split, and guitarist Randy Broughten lately has been playing with fellow Minnesotans the Cactus Blossoms. But this reunion show is a big deal for longtime fans of beloved Gear Daddies classics such as "Stupid Boy" and "Time Heals." A fitting opener: Denton alt-country band Slobberbone, whose initial rise dovetailed with the Gear Daddies’ denouement. $26.50. 8:30 p.m. 310 Willie Nelson Blvd. 3tenaustin.com. — P.B.


Saturday: Return and Discover Fest on East Twelfth Street. The East Twelfth Street Merchants Association invites Austinites old and new to explore the neighborhood at this family-friendly afternoon bash. Programmed to coincide with the East Austin Studio Tour, the event features musical performances from Riders Against the Storm, Tiarra Girls and CJ Edwards and the Funk Fellowship. Other activities include a dunking booth (with dunkees like Chief Brian Manley of the Austin Police Department and City Council Member Natasha Harper-Madison), a scavenger hunt with prizes and a petting zoo for the kids. The festivities kick off at 11 a.m. with a screening of the documentary "Reflections of a Legacy," followed by a panel discussion. Free. Twelfth and Chicon streets. facebook.com/East12Merchants. — D.S.S.


Saturday: World of Wonder at Scholz Garten. This event pays tribute to the music and legacy of Stevie Wonder, while aiming to forge connections between Austin’s sighted and visually impaired communities. Jazz band Blue Mist, which includes five alumni of the Austin School of the Blind and Visually Impaired, will perform alongside the school’s current jazz band. The event will include special appearances from one-man funk explosion D Madness, Devin Gutierrez and the Austin School of Rock. There also will be interactive games and activities and braille Christmas cards for sale. $20. Portion of proceeds benefit All Blind Children of Texas. 4 p.m. 1607 San Jacinto Blvd. scholzgarten.com. — D.S.S.


Tuesday: Doug Sahm memorial tribute with Durawa & friends at El Mercado Backstage. This week marks 20 years since we lost Sahm, one of the most important and influential Texas musicians. Drummer Ernie Durawa, a lifelong friend and collaborator, plays every Tuesday at the Backstage and is marking the occasion with an evening of Sahm’s music, featuring special guests Joe King Carrasco, Will Owen Gage, Billy Broome, Mike Barfield, Will Knaak and Speedy Sparks. $10. All proceeds go to the Health Alliance for Austin Musicians. 7:30 p.m. 1302 South First St. austinbackstage.com. — P.B.


Thursday: Allison Moorer, Hayes Carll at Cactus Cafe. Newly married, these two prominent Americana music mainstays will appear together for an intriguing dual-purpose event in conjunction with Moorer’s new memoir, "Blood." The book details the hardships that Moorer and her sister, Grammy-winning singer Shelby Lynne, experienced after their father killed their mother and then himself in 1986. Moorer also has released a new album with the same title; she and Carll will talk about the book and then play songs from the record, with a signing and meet-and-greet after. $33-$35 (or $60-$65 with copy of book included). 8:30 p.m. 2247 Guadalupe St. cactuscafe.org. — P.B.
