Music


Wilco at ACL Live. If it’s been six years since Wilco played the Austin City Limits Music Festival, that’s mostly good news for their local fans, who’ve been able to catch the groundbreaking Chicago indie band play much-longer-than-festival-length sets at venues including Stubb’s and Bass Concert Hall during that stretch. On the heels of “Ode to Joy,” their new album released this month, Jeff Tweedy and company return to town for two nights at the city’s marquee music venue. $49.50-$69.50. 7:30 p.m. Saturday. 310 Willie Nelson Blvd. acl-live.com — Peter Blackstock

Spirit of Ghost Hill Halloween Party. Said to be haunted by the ghost of a man who died in a car crash just outside the gate in the 1930s, the Ghost Hill Ranch became the permanent home for Treaty Oak Distilling in 2016 and definitely has plenty of spirits — most notably whiskey and gin. This Halloween event will have a haunted hayride through the property, drink specials like a Candy Corn Old Fashioned and more. Noon to 9 p.m. Saturday. Free. 16604 Fitzhugh Road, Dripping Springs. treatyoakdistilling.com/events/spiritsofghosthill
