Chris Cornell, more tickets on sale this week

Chris Cornell will close his tour Nov. 2 at ACL Live.

Rolling Stone calls him the ninth best lead singer of all time, and many others call him an architect of the ’90s grunge movement. Chris Cornell achieved multiplatinum success with three bands — Soundgarden, Audioslave and Temple of the Dog — and received critical acclaim for his solo albums and tours. Tuesday, Cornell announced plans to embark on a tour behind the September release of his new solo album “Higher Truth.” The tour will come to a close Nov. 2 at ACL Live, and tickets for the show go on sale Friday at 10 a.m.

Postmodern Jukebox began as a YouTube experiment by band leader Scott Bradley and quickly became a social media sensation. The band takes today’s Top 40 to a new era with jazzy renditions of songs from the likes of Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, Radiohead and Macklemore. Video recordings of the songs on YouTube have been viewed well over 100 million times. See the phenomenon on stage at ACL Live on Dec. 5. Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m.

‘Mixtape’ benefits Austin producer’s family

Here’s a creative approach to flood relief: Three dozen local musicians each contributed a song for a downloadable “mixtape” on Bandcamp, with the $15 minimum donation benefiting South Austin producer Mark Hallman and his family.

The Hallmans suffered significant damage to their house in the Memorial Day flood. A producer who has worked with many local musicians at his Congress House Studio, Hallman quickly found friends and colleagues rallying to help. In a week’s time, they put together the “Hallman Flood Relief Mixtape,” with all donations going directly to the Hallman family.

The set includes songs from Eliza Gilkyson and Shawn Colvin, Jon Dee Graham, Sara Hickman, Will Sexton, Akina Adderley and the Vintage Playboys, Danny Schmidt, Charlie Faye, Randy Weeks, the Belle Sounds and more than two dozen other local acts. Most of the songs were recorded over the years at Hallman’s studio. — Peter Blackstock
