Senses Fail at Red 7 outdoor. The irony of Senses Fail’s decade-long career is that although singer Buddy Nielsen has been the only constant presence amid frequent turnover, it’s actually the rest of the band’s work that is more appealing on the group’s latest album, “Renacer.” Nielsen’s voice and presence are a definitive enough stamp to keep the group’s identity intact through five albums, but the band’s calling-card remains the raw rock energy of their performances, and that’s a strong point for current guitarists Zack Roach and Matt Smith. No Bragging Rights and Knuckle Puck open. $15-$17. 9 p.m. doors. 611 E. Seventh St. red7austin.com. — P.B.
