Kevin Welch at Waterloo Records. Oklahoma native and Wimberley resident Welch has been a left-of-center-country treasure since his self-titled major-label debut came out in 1990. He was never a great fit for mainstream Nashville but worked really well around its edges, leading to his partnership with the artist-run Dead Reckoning collective. Some of that crew’s key players return on his new album “Dust Devil,” a sterling new set of songs that run the range of the Americana genre. 5 p.m. Nov. 14. Free. 600 N. Lamar Blvd. waterloorecords.com. — Peter Blackstock
