The Planner, Sept. 27: Tickets on sale today for Superchunk, Gordon Lightfoot, Dwight Yoakam and more

Austin musician Charlie Sexton and Nashville singer-songwriter Ruby Amanfu perform Wednesday night during Petty Fest at the Mohawk.

After 2001’s aptly titled “Here’s to Shutting Up,” previously prolific power-pop rockers Superchunk went nearly a decade without recording a new full-length LP. Returning in 2010 with the well-received “Majesty Shredding” and 2013’s “I Hate Music,” the band from Chapel Hill, N.C., has proven they still have it — the new material feels as energetic and essential as anything in their impressive discography. The group’s tour will bring them to Austin on Feb. 6, and tickets go on sale Friday. (Similarly, Los Angeles’ Suicidal Tendencies is back on tour behind their first new album in 13 years, and they’ll play the Mohawk in December.)

Tickets going on sale at 10 a.m. Friday (check with venues to purchase):

• JMSN at Lambert’s (Nov. 7)

• AWOLNATION, Quiet Company at ACL Live (Nov. 17)

• Dwight Yoakam at ACL Live (Nov. 21)

• Suicidal Tendencies, Terror, Trash Talk at Mohawk (Dec. 12)

• Gungor at Emo’s (Jan. 14)

• Superchunk at Mohawk (Feb. 6)

• Gordon Lightfoot at ACL Live (Feb. 11)

• Pat Metheny Unity Group at ACL Live (Feb. 19)

• Dr. Dog at Stubb’s (Feb. 21)

In other fairly exciting ticketing news, tickets to see Mark Kozelek went on sale earlier this week. For $16, you can see the Sun Kil Moon/Red House Painters musician at Central Presbyterian Church. We’re also pretty excited about the prospect of seeing Irish comedian Dylan Moran, enchanting as crabby bookstore owner Bernard Black on BBC’s cult comedy “Black Books.” Moran performs Oct. 22 and 23 at the Paramount, and tickets are $38-$43.

In case you missed it: If you don’t mind a bit of driving, you’ll also want to note that legendary country songstress Emmylou Harris is performing at Gruene Hall in New Braunfels on Oct. 11. Tickets are still available for $75, and Rodney Crowell opens. Cactus Cafe hosts Apache Relay and Johnathan Rice on Nov. 2, and tickets are $12-$14.

Next week in Austin360

The Austin City Limits Music Festival is here — and it’s hanging around for a second weekend for the first time (Oct. 4-6 and 11-13). In next week’s Austin360, we’ll have plenty of interviews and preview information, including a special foldout copy of the festival schedule and map. Before that, look for our critics picks this Sunday in the Life & Arts section (remember, the lineup each weekend is virtually identical, with just a handful of mostly Austin acts changing). Tuesday in Life & Arts, we’ll have a guide to the Austin acts playing the fest this year. And, as always, we have plenty of updates and more at austin360.com/acl.

Good music, good causes
