OUR TOP PICKS

Friday-Sunday: Saturnalia Festival at Webberville Baptist Church. Curated by Golden Dawn Arkestra and Electric Church, this event was modeled on the niche fests GDA plays in Europe. It’s a two-stage shindig, with the main stage in an open field between Sahara Lounge and Webberville Baptist Church and the second stage inside at Sahara. The lineup includes 50 artists, mostly drawn from the local psych rock and world music scenes. Headliners are Holy Wave (Friday), Golden Dawn Arkestra (Saturday) and Mystic Braves (Sunday). Other prominent artists on the bill include Latasha Lee and the Black Ties, Lumerians, Go Fever and Kiko Villamizar. $65 for a three-day pass. Single-day: $25 Friday or Sunday, $35 Saturday. 1405 Webberville Road. saturnaliamusicfestival.com. — D.S.S.

Friday-Saturday: Drive-By Truckers at Scoot Inn. When discussions about America’s greatest current rock band surface, the Truckers’ name gets included in the conversation more often than not. For two decades, the Southern indie band led by Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley has made some of the most vibrant and provocative records in live music, all the while touring incessantly with an incendiary live show. Since 2016 they’ve turned sharply toward activism in their songs, though social concerns have always been at the root of their identity. T. Hardy Morris opens. $25. 8 p.m. doors. 1308 E. Fourth St. scootinnaustin.com. — P.B.

Saturday: Harvest Thieves play Whiskeytown’s “Strangers Almanac” at White Horse. The local alt-country band, which inaugurated our Austin360 Artist of the Month series back in January 2016, rarely plays a show without slipping Whiskeytown’s “16 Days” into the set. But for a milestone birthday, leader Cory Reinisch asked his bandmates if they’d play the entire 1997 album that featured that song, and they’ve obliged. (Full disclosure: Having written the liner notes for the “Strangers Almanac” 10th-anniversary reissue many years ago, I’ve been enlisted to provide some contextual remarks.) Altamesa opens, and Jonathan Terrell closes out the night. $5. 10 p.m. 500 Comal St. thewhitehorseaustin.com. — P.B.

Sunday: "I Want My All ATX" at Four Seasons. British synth-pop band A Flock of Seagulls has been tapped to headline the annual concert benefiting the local music nonprofit, All ATX. Presented by local NPR affiliate KUTX 98.9 FM, the event is an afternoon show that will take place on the downtown hotel’s lawn. The concert’s theme is a nod to the golden age of MTV. It doubles as a release party for this year’s All ATX compilation CD, which features local artists exploring the songs of that era. Sales from the compilation benefit local music non-profits the Health Alliance for Austin Musicians, the SIMS Foundation, Black Fret and the Austin Music Foundation. Excellent local artists Mobley, Kalu & the Electric Joint, Alesia Lani and recent Austin360 Artist of the Month Night Glitter are also on the bill. $20 2 p.m. 98 San Jacinto Blvd. kutx.org -- D.S.S.

Monday: Jaimee Harris at Waterloo Records. Our Austin360 Artist of the Month for June 2018 has been out of town for much of the summer and fall, touring with acclaimed singer-songwriter Mary Gauthier. A return to town offers an opportunity to play an album-release in-store for “Red Rescue,” which came out in September and is one of the best local records of the year. Free. 5 p.m. 600 N. Lamar Blvd. waterloorecords.com. — P.B.

Wednesday: Western Youth plays Tom Petty songs at Stay Gold. Our current Austin360 Artist of the Month has been making waves this fall mostly with its own music. But Petty proved a bonding force last year: When Graham Weber joined the band just a few days after the legendary rocker’s death in October 2017, the first show they played was a tribute to him. They’ll do it again on Thanskgiving eve, with Micah Motenko opening. Free. 9:30 p.m. 1910 E. Cesar Chavez St. staygoldaustin.com. — P.B.

Thursday: Oshun at Barracuda. “Welcome,” the lead track on Oshun’s debut album “Bittersweet, Vol. 1,” is a defiant manifesto, outlining the New York rap duo’s mission to “transform hate into greatness.” The album explores the group’s intergalactic aspirations, dabbling in spacey R&B about auras and star mothers before bringing it back to earth with rugged raw rhymes. Let there be no confusion: The “new goddess on the block” has arrived. $15-$17. 8 p.m. doors. 611 E. Seventh St. barracudaaustin.com. — D.S.S.
