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

OUR TOP PICKS

Friday: Glen Hansard at Stubb’s outdoor. "This Wild Willing," released in April, is the Irish singer-songwriter's fourth solo album in seven years, but he'd long ago earned a loyal following from two decades of records with the Frames, a fantastic indie-rock band that Hansard still records and tours with at times. The game-changer was "Once," the little indie film that could; Hansard won an Oscar for the song "Falling Slowly" and teamed with co-star Markéta Irglová in the short-lived but well-loved side project Swell Season. Expect bits and pieces from all phases in this show. Ohmme opens. $33-$36. 7 p.m. doors. 801 Red River St. stubbsaustin.com. — P.B.

Friday-Saturday: Bill Frisell at C-Boy’s. One of the great guitarists of the 20th and 21st centuries, Frisell most often is labeled a jazz player, but his instrumental explorations are so fascinating because they cover such a wide range of American musical forms, incorporating elements of country, blues, folk, rock, gospel and more. With a guitar tone that’s unmistakably all his own, Frisell bends and molds these genres into adventurous and beautiful sounds that are beyond categorization. He’s frequently performed in band configurations at the Continental Club in recent Austin visits, but this time he’s playing solo down the street at the Continental offshoot C-Boy’s, on a stage he helped christen when the club opened in January 2014. $28. 8 p.m. 2008 S. Congress Ave. cboys.com. — P.B.

Friday-Sunday: Eastside Kings Festival. A labor of love produced by longtime local blues champion Eddie Stout, this event brings soulful sounds back into the heart of East Austin. After a Friday kickoff party at Antone’s, the action moves to 12th and Chicon streets, where a large outdoor stage will be set up in the Mission Possible parking lot, with smaller satellite stages in the surrounding bars and businesses. This year’s roster has a mix of Texas artists, including guitar great Barbara Lynn and harmonica master Gene "Birdlegg" Pittman, alongside national and international talents, such as Bloodest Saxophone, a crew of retro-soul enthusiasts from Japan with more than 20 years of experience backing blues and soul artists. Shows begin at 4:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. facebook.com/EastsideKingsFestival. — D.S.S.

Saturday: Flying Lotus 3D at Emo’s. After five long years, the ace alchemist of jazz-funk fusion recently dropped “Flamagra,” the 27-track follow-up to his brilliant 2014 album, “You’re Dead.” The new release includes features from Anderson.Paak, George Clinton, Tierra Whack, Solange and more. Elaborate visuals have always been a huge part of FlyLo’s live shows, and for the new tour he’s updated his 3D show (yes, you get a pair of glasses at the door) so you can lose yourself in the immersive experience of his new work. 2015 E. Riverside Dr. emosaustin.com. — D.S.S.

Saturday: Dieciséis celebrations at Fiesta Gardens, Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center. Tejano star David Farias, featuring Max Baca of Los Texmaniacs, headlines Fiesta Austin's annual bash at Fiesta Gardens. On the other side of Interstate 35, the Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center, along with Frida Friday ATX, presents Viva México. Featured performers include Latin alternative band Son de Rey, Mariachis Las Alteñas and ballet folklórico students of the Oaxaca Arte en Movimiento dance group. Fiesta: free before 2 p.m., then $5 after that for ages 13 and older. 10 a.m. 2101 Jesse E. Segovia St. fiestaaustin.org. Viva México: Free. 5 p.m. 600 River St. austintexas.gov/esbmacc; shuttle parking will be available from Sanchez Elementary and Martin Middle schools. — Nancy Flores

Saturday: Gregstock at Hole in the Wall. A longtime presence at Sundance Records in San Marcos and the owner Groover’s Paradise Record Shop since it opened at the Oasis in 2014, Greg Ellis has been a champion of local musicians for decades. To help with medical bills from a recent hospitalization, several 1980s-era Austin bands are gathering for this benefit show, including Doctors’ Mob, Wild Seeds, Wannabes, Hey Zeus and the Quitters. Also taking part are the American People, Kathy McCarty, Larry Seaman and John Byrd. $15 donation requested. 7 p.m. 2538 Guadalupe St. holeinthewallaustin.com. — P.B.

Tuesday: William Tyler, Little Mazarn at 3Ten. What good deed did Austin guitar fans do to warrant visits by both Bill Frisell and William Tyler within a four-day span? Tyler, from Nashville, is in some ways like a younger version of Frisell, an exquisitely tasteful instrumental composer who brings a broad range of American musical forms into his acoustic-based sound. At South by Southwest this year, he opened for Patty Griffin and Courtney Marie Andrews on the final night of outdoor shows, delivering a mesmerizingly beautiful set that set a perfect tone for the evening. A major bonus on this bill is local duo Little Mazarn, whose minimalist banjo-saw explorations cast similarly enchanting spells. $15-$18. 8 p.m. 310 Willie Nelson Blvd. 3tenaustin.com. — P.B.
