    Help Clifford Help Kids benefiting American Youthworks w/ the Temptations Review Featuring the Legacy of Dennis Edwards

    In 1960, two Detroit vocal groups, Otis Williams & the Distants and the Primes, fused as the Elgins and signed the following year to Motown Records as the Temptations. Only the Rolling Stones rivaled the powerhouse quintet in bad behavior and R&B. Still led by Texarkana-born Williams, Messrs. Ron Tyson, Terry Weeks, Jawan Jackson, and Anthony Grant croon, shoop, and glide through Antone’s annual fundraising gala for local nonprofit American YouthWorks. Celebrating its golden anniversary next year, the org’s YouthBuild provides vocational training in healthcare, IT, and construction for high schoolers, while their Texas Conservation Corps works landscape management and natural disaster response. Ain’t too proud to fundraise! – Raoul Hernandez

    Lady Dan, Me Nd Adam, Ellis Bullard

    For scorned lovers and hopeless romantics alike, Hotel Vegas transforms into Heartbreak Hotel for two tender pre-Valentine’s nights. Electro-Americana duo Me Nd Adam, of swoonworthy tracks like “Heartbeat of My Soul,” hosts the vintage pop-up. For a murkier love outlook, try Lady Dan’s recent synth rendition of Leonard Cohen’s “You Want It Darker,” or pedal steel standout “Paradox.” “A paradox, a woman of stone/ To want to be loved and left alone.” Country crooner Ellis Bullard delivers a dose of honky-tonk heartache. Shed your tears for a good cause, as a portion of ticket sales benefit HAAM. – Genevieve Wood

    Rome Fortune (DJ set)

    A decade removed from 2013 breakout mixtape Beautiful Pimp and Rome Fortune is still pushing the envelope. After gaining notoriety for his unique blend of booming Southern trap and atmospheric indie synths, the famously blue-bearded Atlanta-grown rapper has gone on to collaborate with everyone from Gucci Mane to Lil Uzi Vert to Toro y Moi, garnering a reputation as a sonic experimentalist unafraid to blur genre lines. Rome may play cuts from 2023 dance-heavy project Grown in this four-hour solo DJ set (relocated from previous plans at the adjoining Parish). – Elizabeth Braaten

    Carla Bley tribute w/ Carl Michel, Alex Coke, Ken George, Carolyn Trowbridge, Tex Gortex, & Masumi Jones

    Over the latter half of the 20th century, the late jazz composer Carla Bley created a mountain of irrepressible, irresistible tunes that casually obliterated lines of demarcation. Though she maintained deep ties to the avant-garde, especially through her New York-based Jazz Composers Guild, her songs leaned hard into melody and expressed an impish sense of humor. That makes her music perfect for saxophonist Alex Coke and guitarist Carl Michel, who’ve been known to gleefully hop boundaries themselves over their long careers in Austin jazz. They’ll be joined by vibraphonist Carolyn Trowbridge, drummer Masumi Jones, trombonist Ken George, and bassist Tex Goretex. – Michael Toland
