ATX pop home run, 7pm.
The second night of the Mack (Brown), Jack (Ingram) & (Matthew) McConaughey benefit “dedicated to empowering underserved children” looks to be a giant song swap, a curious mix of Texas and Tennessee songwriters.

Nashville’s hit-making quartet Little Big Town leads the pack.– Jim Caligiuri

Pétanque is a French version of bocce, and this inaugural Texas tourney brings over 400 players from around the world to compete for a $10,000 purse. For those without the boules to play, a two-day lineup of stellar indie roots music plays local soundtrack, with Raina Rose, Bottom Dollar String Band, Kevin & Dustin Welch, the Love Leighs, and Roger Sellers greeting Friday crowds, and MilkDrive, Jack Wilson, Holiday Mountain, and Ben Kweller bookending Saturday’s action.– Doug Freeman
