Several new and notable acts will park their tour bus in the Live Music Capital of the World this spring. Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats, whose single “S.O.B.” topped Billboard’s adult alternative chart, comes to Stubb’s on April 21. The same stage will host the Neighbourhood on May 19. Their 2013 single “Sweater Weather” took some time to gain traction but was eventually a mainstay on Top 40 radio stations across the country and abroad.

But the newest and perhaps most notable: Børns comes to Scoot Inn on June 7. The 24-year-old indie pop artist appeared on the scene about a year ago but still made it into the lineup for Lollapalooza, Coachella and Austin City Limits Music Festival. Since his ACL Fest appearance last fall, the “Electric Love” singer released his first studio album “Dopamine” to a Top 25 spot on the U.S. charts.

Tickets for all three shows go on sale Friday at 10 a.m.

Don’t miss these other ticket sales beginning this week:

• Pentatonix at Erwin Center (May 8)

• Flogging Molly at Stubb’s (May 26)

• Bruce Robison, Kelly Willis & John Fullbright at ACL Live (June 18)

’80s rockers and sexy sax enthusiasts Daryl Hall and John Oates announced plans for a new arena tour, and the show will make a stop at the Austin360 Amphitheater on May 17. Soul powerhouse Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings and NOLA brass superhero Trombone Shorty will open.

Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. at all Ticketmaster locations.
