    Ian Moore (50th birthday celebration & CD release), Eric Tessmer

It’s “Looking for the Sound” exemplifies the disc’s Sixties pop, Seventies rock, and Nineties indie, whiling dismounting into contemporary awareness and hope like full-length predecessor Strange Days. SRV-fast firebrand Eric Tessmer opens a club answer to Steve Miller and Peter Frampton shredding the Moody on Monday.

    Pato Banton, Music4Life

    UK toaster known for a positive strain of hooky Jamaican messages like “Don’t Sniff Coke,” Pato Banton ranked among Gen X’s biggest reggae stars. Following his landmark dub record, Mad Professor Captures Pato Banton, the Birmingham-raised MC went on to collab with Sting, the English Beat, and UB40’s Ali Campbell. Studio production has dropped off, but the live show remains inspirational.

    Freedonia

    Moniker borrowed from a failed 1826 East Texas rebellion against Mexico or the Marx Brothers’ Duck Soup, Freedonia boasts a crack line-up exploring a Southern California blend of Seventies pop and jazz. Working that medium, locals could do no better than enlisting multiple Grammy winner Christopher Cross on guitar and vocals. The triple sax threat of Russell Haight, Seth Carper, and Justin Vasquez powers the octet’s debut LP.

    Jerry Fest w/ Deadeye

    Landing between Jerry Garcia’s birthday (Aug. 1) and last day (Aug. 9), this Heads assemblage at Deadgill’s pays respects to the man-in-black-sweatpants. Expect Austin’s Deadeye, fronted by Jerry-approximate Joe Faulhaber, to mine Garcia’s solo oeuvre as well. Their “Rubin and Cherise” is exquisite. Guests include White Demin’s James Petralli, South Austin Jug Band’s Will Dupuy, and Hard Proof’s Joe Woullard.
