    FEA, Go Fever, Shy Beast, Lola Tried

    Girl in a Coma’s Phanie Diaz and Jenn Alva lead San Antonio riot grrrl quartet Fea with fiery Chicana punk. 2016’s self-titled bow, co-produced by genre godmother Alice Bag and Against Me!’s Laura Jane Grace, debuted brutally melodic bilingual anthems like “Mujer Moderna.” Go Fever’s sharp local pop supports, as sustained by Aussie Acey Monaro’s big voice. Sleek synth from Shy Beast and chiming indie by Lola Tried begins.

    Primus, Mastodon, All Them Witches

    The art of being quirky while still rocking the hell out is a fine one, but funk-metal weirdos Primus have struck that balance for 30 years. The bass-fronted San Francisco trio keeps the schtick strong on The Desaturating Seven, inspired by a children’s book. Bolstering 2017 double shot Emperor of Sand and Cold Dark Place, Atlantan prog metal eccentrics Mastodon co-headline. Nashville power rockers All Them Witches open.

    Dweezil Zappa

    Frank Zappa (1940-1993) cemented his connection to Austin at the Armadillo World Headquarters. Recorded live, 1975’s Bongo Fury preserves the summit of the Baltimore-born guitarist and Don Van Vliet, aka Captain Beefheart. If you missed it, hearing six-string scion Dweezil Zappa plumb the FZ catalog is the next best thing. The eclectic “Choice Cuts” tour spans decades, from Freak Out! standout “Trouble Every Day” through “Cocaine Decisions” off 1983’s The Man From Utopia.
