    Porcelain (album release), Cherubs, alexalone

    As ATX adjusts to its size and national status – international cred secured long ago by SXSW – its cultural history suddenly churns into visions of tomorrow. Cherubs remain a living, seething, bouncing bridge between pioneering local post-punks of the Eighties (Scratch Acid and Butthole Surfers) and their contemporary spawn. Last year’s Brutal Panda reissues for Icing and Heroin Man completed a Cherubs through line to the melodic noiseniks’ resurgence starting in 2015 on 2 Ynfynyty and Immaculada High four years later. Thursday, the trio headlines with support by the Grasshopper Lies Heavy and Suckling. Friday, they warm up pandemic-born post-punks Porcelain, who christen an eponymous debut LP, with alexalone opening. – Raoul Hernandez

    Cash Bash

    Do you hear that lonesome whistle blowin’? Mayhaps it’s the spirit of Johnny Cash calling you to celebrate what woulda been the iconic musician’s 92nd birthday, just a smidge early. Walk the line over to the city’s No. 1 Cash bar for free live music from Deep Eddies and Truck Stop Jukebox starting at 7pm, and set aside some funds for a limited-edition T-shirt to proudly proclaim your allegiance to the Man in Black. – Kat McNevins

    Gabe Lee; Brennen Leigh, Kelly Willis, & Melissa Carper (performances & record signings)

    This sharp showcase bookends an impressive run of free-to-the-public Waterloo performances leading up to the ticketed Ameripolitan Music Awards on Sunday. Likewise, Nashville native Gabe Lee put an exclamation point on his career’s ventures through country, folk, and rock with last year’s Drink the River. His fourth LP presents a message of unity with tracks like the addiction-addressing “Even Jesus Got the Blues.” The must-see Austin-affiliated trio of Brennen Leigh, Melissa Carper, and Kelly Willis add to the in-store show/signing with irresistible song-swapping between acoustic guitars and Carper’s upright bass, ahead of their own awards show appearances. Find the full list of awards-affiliated gigs at ameripolitan.org/schedule. – Rachel Rascoe
