Initially interested in more mainstream rock music, he discovered Spanish flamenco after moving to Los Angeles in the 1990s and has since issued about a dozen releases, as well as producing a live concert DVD called “Nights of Fire” that became a PBS sensation and won an Emmy. $20-$99. 7 p.m. 7701 Bee Caves Road. oneworldtheatre.org. — P.B.
