    Cattle Country Music Festival Day 2 w/ Breland, Randy Rogers Band, Tanya Tucker, Colbie Caillat, the War & Treaty; Whiskey Myers, Kaleo, Southall, William Beckmann; Cameron Sacky, Tyler Braden, the Weathered Souls, Coleman Jennings, Derek Austin

    The Boot ranch outside of Gonzales kicks off its first Cattle Country Music Festival with a stacked lineup anchored by Texas stars. Koe Wetzel leads Friday with his country and alternative rock blend, setting up a Saturday with new Country Music HOFer Tanya Tucker preambling red-dirt superstars Whiskey Myers and the Randy Rogers Band. Sunday aptly delivers Eric Church, along with Austin’s Yellowstone breakout Shane Smith & the Saints. The downcard runs deep though, including Colbie Caillat, the War & Treaty, and William Beckmann (Saturday) plus William Clark Green, Hailey Whitters, and Tanner Usrey (Sunday). Come and take it. – Doug Freeman

    ATX Queer Music Fest w/ Calmer Seas, Thelonious Love, Lavender Scare, LonersClub, Female Gallery, MVVN, Stephy Lee, Montana Sand, Telefaz

    Launched in 2022 by drummer and Technicolor Booking lead Genesis Vasquez, ATX Queer Music Fest returns with continuously impressive genre diversity. At this week’s free showcase, offerings include Thelonious Love, who spits cheeky bars about petty exes and his unmatched grind over bouncy bass; MVVN, whose breezy indie-pop recalls Aughts-era dance rock; and Vasquez’s own Female Gallery, pairing classic post-punk basslines with psychedelic guitar riffs. Bluegrass picker Montana Sand, Puerto Rican rapper Stephy Lee, alt-soul quintet Telefaze, plus Lavender Scare, Tommietee, and Calmer Seas, round out the bill. Taste – err, hear – the rainbow. – Carys Anderson

    Aterciopelados, Superfónicos [outside]

    Swimming in a sea of Latinismo during the now annual Besame Mucho festival at Circuit of the Americas in February, I fired off a telepathic salvo to Aterciopelados. Enanitos Verdes spanned decades of alt-roc, Molotov bounced decades of rap-roc, and Cafe Tacuba pulsed decades of roc en español. Yet where were Julieta Venegas, Juana Molina, and Ely Guerra? Argentina’s answer to Stereolab finally beams principals Andrea Echeverri y Héctor Buitrago back here. Pandemic mitigation Tropiplop preserves Echeverri’s androgynous intonation, an inscrutable tenor blipping with feminine quips – never artificial or anything other than intrinsic. Colombian brass mob Superfónicos opens, so gracias a Dios Mohawk’s got no roof. – Raoul Hernandez

    Ninth anniversary Day 2 w/ Butter & Jam, Chief Cleopatra, the Cuckoos, the Tiarras, Dayeater

    Zilker Brewing Co. celebrates nine years of busting barley with jam-packed festivities including local eats and a near-endless array of ales. Twangy country collective the Lonesome Heroes will put a Southern spin on Friday’s festivities with their honky-tonk ballads. Saturday expects a slew of live talent including psychedelic threepiece DAYEATER, vibrant genre-fusing sisters the Tiarras, and New Age art-rockers the Cuckoos. Soul-rock wordsmith Chief Cleopatra joins the lineup, along with the funk-fueled sonic improv deconstructions of Butter & Jam. Spend Sunday with the family and your choice of activities including arcade games, face painting, and balloon art. – Miranda Garza
