Bob Schneider at Antone’s. Austin’s home of the blues closes out its monthlong 43rd anniversary bash with an artist who diverges from the event’s mostly traditionalist focus, but there’s still tradition involved, as Schneider was long associated with the club’s previous Fifth & Lavaca streets location. Perhaps unique locally in his ability to hold down a weekly residency at a small venue (South Austin mainstay the Saxon Pub) while occasionally filling big rooms such as ACL Live, Schneider has his place within the Antone’s legacy, as acknowledged with this show. The Airliners open. $35-$40. 9 p.m. Saturday, 305 E. Fifth St. antonesnightclub.com. — Peter Blackstock
National Geographic: Symphony for Our World. The Austin Symphony Orchestra and Chorus Austin will perform a five-part composition during this night of natural wonder. “Symphony for Our World” combines the music with National Geographic footage of the world’s beauty, transporting the audience from the depths of the sea to the coastlines and onto land, through mountains and finally into the sky. Each environment will be accompanied by a different orchestral movement. The original piece was created by Emmy- and BAFTA-nominated Bleeding Fingers Music. 8 p.m.Saturday. $29-$59. The Long Center, 701 W. Riverside Drive. 512-474-5664, thelongcenter.org.
