Downtown’s largest venue isn’t too big to pivot. Last month, ACL Live adapted into a chapel, marrying 14 couples under lights typically shining on bands. This weekend they baby step back into live entertainment with local, socially distanced double bills raising money for Austin music nonprofit Black Fret. Violin and ukulele-anchored indie folk combo Wild Child, whose new Song Confessional-inspired track “Going In” proved a popular Spotify addition, link with Beau Bedford’s country, funk, and blues wrecking crew Texas Gentlemen. Melodically vibrant multi-instrumentalist Jackie Venson plays Saturday after explosive rappers Blackillac.
