    Free and open to all ages, Rancho Alegre Conjunto Music Festival returns for its 19th annual celebration of Tejano and Tex-Mex musical stylings.

Apart from local fan favorites Conjunto Los Pinkys and CruzSante, the event ropes in talent as far as Laredo (Kamila y Bella Divas) and Edinburg (Riley y Los Gilitos). Don’t miss headlining sets from luchador mask-donning Los Enmascarados, conjunto classics Rene Joslin y Los Favoritos, and Kingsville foursome Los D Boyz. – Miranda Garza

    Arch Ray Eclipse Musicfest Day 1 w/ Kyle Park, Cory Morrow, Lane Smith, Matt Daniel, Hank Williams IV, Slim Bawb

    Monday’s solar eclipse is no time to blather on about music. And yet … the headliner of this two-day soundtrack got us thinking. Back to Eighties college rock when Buffalo threesome the Goo Goo Dolls plied inebriated thrash pop on Metal Blade Records. 1993’s Superstar Car Wash rolled Westerburgian suds prior to A Boy Named Goo breaking them Kings of Leon-style, and paired with platinum ATX trio Fastball (“The Way”), an alt-pop event manifests. Six sets a day starting around noon, including Sunday’s Hank Williams IV, Cory Morrow, and Kyle Park, then the Dolls, Fastball, and Switchfoot on Monday, light up Fredericksburg, which expects a half-million sun worshippers. – Raoul Hernandez

    CMT Music Awards w/ Bailey Zimmerman, Jelly Roll, Keith Urban, Lainey Wilson, Sam Hunt, Cody Johnson, Megan Moroney, Old Dominion, Parker McCollum & Brittney Spencer, Kelsea Ballerini (host)

    For the second year in a row, Austin will play host to the Country Music Television Awards. The awards, hosted by Kelsea Ballerini, will gather some of the genre’s biggest stars at the Moody Center, where the show will broadcast live. Notable performances include Jelly Roll, whose three CMT victories last year made him 2023’s winningest artist; Keith Urban, whose 20th CMT performance will set a record; and reunion performances for mega acts Sugarland and Little Big Town, who are celebrating 20 and 25 years of breakout success, respectively. Fingers crossed that Beyoncé reprises a 2016 CMA Awards appearanceto celebrate her new country album Cowboy Carter – though chances are admittedly slim. The awards air on CBS, 7-10pm CST, and will also stream live on Paramount+ with Showtime. Limited award show tickets still available. – Abby Johnston

    HONK!TX Day 3

    Invited recently to the Austin Music Commission, yours truly testified about journalism and all-ages music ops. Burned into my soul remains the image of my preschooler sneaking a surreptitious blow on a Honk!TX tuba pre-pandemic. Year 12 now, the marching band summit crescendos the capital’s best free music festival, a four-day brass fantasy of honking, whistling, thumping mania. Thursday: “pre-clipse” takeover of the Ballroom, 8pm. Friday: 6-10pm at Central Machine Works, as well as East Cesar Chavez diner Sawyer & Co. and French brasserie Justine’s. Saturday: all day, for the main event at Mueller Lake Park. Then Sunday’s Pan Am Park parade, 1-6pm. HONK. – Raoul Hernandez
