Rosie Flores at Waterloo Records. A cornerstone of Austin’s roots-music scene since the 1980s, the San Antonio native is classified as “a rockabilly and country music artist” if you look her up on Wikipedia. But her new record “Simple Case of the Blues” reminds us that her range reaches well beyond those limits. On the album, Flores trades guitar leads with Kenny Vaughan, a major talent with two decades in Marty Stuart’s band; Vaughan co-produced with bassist Dave Roe and Austin ace-in-the-hole Charlie Sexton. Free. 5 p.m. July 15. 600 N. Lamar Blvd. waterloorecords.com. — Peter Blackstock
