Weekend music picks: Shakey Graves, Jerry Douglas Band, more

Peter Blackstock


Friday-Saturday: Round Rock Juneteenth Rhythm and Ribs at Old Settlers Park. The two-day, family-friendly shindig includes music, games, clowns and a barbecue contest. Beatbox pioneer and early rap standout Doug E. Fresh headlines the Friday night party, and boy band Next Town Down leads a Saturday bill that includes a variety of gospel groups and jazz artist Don Diego. Free, $5 parking per car. Gates at 7:45 p.m. Friday, 2 p.m. Saturday. 3300 E Palm Valley Blvd. — D.S.S.


Friday: Patricia Vonne at Waterloo Records. “Top of the Mountain,” the seventh album from the Austin-based native of San Antonio, draws upon the full range of her artistic ambitions and musical inclinations. A strong singer with a flair for the dramatic, Vonne consistently delivers memorable vocal performances here, on material that ranges from hard-driving rock ’n’ roll (“City Is Alive”) to midtempo melodicism (the title track) to the more folk-oriented Spanish-language excursions “Madre de Perla” and “Cancion de la Boda.” Vonne wrote or co-wrote all dozen tracks, working with an impressive cast of collaborators such as Alejandro Escovedo, Joe King Carrasco and her longtime guitarist Robert LaRoche. Free. 5 p.m. 600 N. Lamar Blvd. — P.B.

Saturday: Shakey Graves at Stubb’s outdoor. After shaping his early sound around an obsession with roots music of the ‘30s, the Austin artist also known as Alejandro Rose-Garcia moves to the ‘60s on “Can’t Wake Up,” a new collection of dreamy pop songs that drift through a psychedelic haze. Rose-Garcia says he’s upping his stagecraft for this tour, which is swiftly selling out large venues across the country, so expect a more polished production from one of our city’s most charismatic exports. Jonathan Terrell opens. $28-$30. 7 p.m. doors. 801 Red River St. — D.S.S.

INTERVIEW: Shakey Graves on his new album, “Can’t Wake Up”


Saturday: Jerry Douglas Band at 3Ten. It’s no exaggeration to call Nashville dobro ace Douglas one of the finest musicians in the world, and he has 14 Grammys and three Musician of the Year awards from the Country Music Association to prove it. You may know him best from Union Station, the longtime backing band of Alison Krauss. But he’s also issued more than a dozen adventurous, largely instrumental solo records, including last year’s “What If.” He’ll bring the full band from that record with him for a show that should appeal equally to jazz and Americana audiences. $30-$35. 8:30 p.m. 310 Willie Nelson Blvd. — P.B.
