South By Southwest music events continue to fill up the city through the weekend, with official showcases dominating downtown venues and side parties scattered all about town. Here’s a look at some other concerts coming up in the week ahead.

Daily: Rodeo Austin at Travis County Exposition Center. The SXSW circus may be leaving town, but the rodeo is staying around for another week. Following Sunday afternoon’s appearance by Kenny Rogers (see interview, page 20) are country concerts with Neal McCoy (Monday) and Josh Turner (Tuesday), followed by R&B singer Patti LaBelle on Wednesday. Performances continue through March 25. $20-$175. 7 p.m. (Sunday shows 3 p.m.) 7311 Decker Lane. rodeoaustin.com.

Sunday: David Garza & Friends at Continental Club. Last year, Garza took over this traditional all-day post-SXSW bash from longtime host Alejandro Escovedo. He returns with a lineup that includes Jon Dee Graham, Javier Escovedo, Mystic Knights of the Sea, Nina Diaz, Kyle Ellison & Friends, Tameca Jones, Suzanna Choffel, Guy Forsyth, Amy Cook and Luz. $20. 2 p.m. 1315 S. Congress Ave. continentalclub.com.

Tuesday: House of Songs showcase at the Townsend. The lineup for this show was still in the works at press time, but House of Songs has a dependable reputation of presenting quality shows featuring a mix of local and international performers. Local music-education nonprofit Anthropos Arts co-sponsors this show. $10. 8 p.m. 718 Congress Ave. thetownsendaustin.com.

Wednesday: Blink-182,Naked & Famous at Austin360 Amphitheater. It’s officially spring: Not only does the vernal equinox arrive on Monday, but the Austin360 Amphitheater’s season begins with its first show of 2017 on Wednesday. Rockers Blink-182 and Naked & Famous kick off a run that includes Kings of Leon (May 9), Train (May 20), Florida Georgia Line (June 2), Muse (June 10), Chicago and the Doobie Brothers (June 17) before the summer solstice comes. $19.50-$79.50. 7 p.m. 9201 Circuit of the Americas Blvd. austin360amphitheater.com.

Wednesday: Bryan Ferry at ACL Live. Though his greatest legacy remains as the frontman for groundbreaking 1970s art-rock band Roxy Music, Ferry has done more than a dozen solo albums as well. His more recent explorations have steered into the realms of jazz and films, including work on Baz Lurhmann’s 2013 remake of “The Great Gatsby.” Judith Owen & Leland Sklar open. $60-$90. 8 p.m. 310 Willie Nelson Blvd. acl-live.com.

Thursday: Shawn Mullins at Cactus Cafe. You might never get that “Ev-er-y-thing’s gonna be all right” chorus of Mullins’ 1990s breakthrough hit “Lullaby” out of your head, but the Georgia singer-songwriter has had a long career with more than a dozen albums. Among the best was “The Thorns,” the sole self-titled record of his collaboration with fellow rock-pop tunesmiths Matthew Sweet and Pete Droge. More recently, he issued the 2015 album “My Stupid Heart” on Sugar Hill/Rounder. $25-$28. 8:30 p.m. 2247 Guadalupe St. cactuscafe.org.
