Embarrassment of riches. That’s what they should call Austin. Live music clusters here in the Texas state capital like perhaps no other city on the entire planet, but quantity’s not at issue here. New York and maybe San Francisco boast myriad music options on the last night of the year, symbolic marker for most of mankind, but down here in the warm, muggy Southwest, roots acts to seed future generations to come spring up hither and yon with delirious verve, from Scott H. Biram and Oscar-winning rodeo bang-up Ryan Bingham to bigger kahunas including Bob Schneider, Breeders, Jimmie Vaughan, and Willie Nelson himself. Chronicle club listings explore all avenues, but here’s more than a dozen top contenders to exit 2013 and toast 2014’s incoming live music steeplechase. • Doyle Bramhall II & Smokestack (Antone’s)

• Alvin Crow (Broken Spoke)
