KUTX 98.9 FM birthday bash. The official fifth anniversary for the Austin NPR affiliate’s all-music channel was back in January, but the yearlong celebration continues.

With soulful rallying cries like “Blk Girl Soldier” and “Vry Blk,” Jamila Woods crafts revolution R&B that captures the urgency of the current moment. Together they make a powerful double bill. 7 p.m. Saturday. $35-$45. Hogg Auditorium, 2300 Whitis Ave. cactuscafe.org. — Deborah Sengupta Stith
