Jungle at Mohawk outdoor. Mixing layers of gauzy, laid-back electro-grooves with hints of hip hop and funky undercurrents, the deliberately enigmatic London duo has been making waves at home and abroad this year. Following a successful South by Southwest run, bandleaders J and T set off on a summer U.S. tour and a fall festival jaunt. The band also just picked up a Mercury Prize nomination, and with nods from Spin and BBC, their slickly produced self-titled debut is likely to land on many critics year-end lists. $20. 6:30 p.m. doors. 912 Red River St. mohawkaustin.com. — Deborah Sengupta Stith
