    Austin Psych Fest Day 2 w/ the Black Angels, Earthless, All Them Witches, L.A. Witch, Witch, Hooveriii, Frankie & the Witch Fingers, GHOSTWOMAN, Minami Deutsch, Thor & Friends

    Back for its second year as a springtime complement to Downtown Halloweekend romp Levitation, Austin Psych Fest once again sets up shop down south, at the Far Out Lounge. Friday headliner Courtney Barnett, Sunday big-names Alvvays and Kurt Vile, and founders the Black Angels – playing Saturday – appeal to a certain indie-favoring, millennial crowd, but smaller acts represent both ends of the psychedelic spectrum. On Friday, Colombian songwriter Lido Pimienta pairs Spanish lyrics and tribal percussion with glitchy synths. On Sunday, Boston duo Sweeping Promises recalls the infinitely catchy, bass-driven post-punk of the Eighties. (See interview with Friday performer, psych-soul outfit Chicano Batman, in print this week.) – Carys Anderson

    Austin Death Fest Day 1 w/ Mortiferum, Outer Heaven, Witch Vomit, Sentenced 2 Die, Lunar Chamber, Maul, Torn in Half, Ritual Fog, Death File Red [outside]

    UK doom storm Conan summoned a who’s-who of ATX heshers to the Lost Well recently, including an Oblivion Access principal who confirmed the avant-extreme fest is on hiatus. Chaos in Tejas ceased in 2014. Austin’s thus ripe for a dedicated metal fest. Between a matrix of local venues including Empire, Come & Take It Live, and now the Parish, the scene currently enjoys a metallic renaissance stoked here by Mohawk’s two-day, 18-act death metal decanting. San Jose longhairs Mortuous and Pennsylvania sledgehammers Outerheaven top Friday, and Ontario trio Tomb Mold imports top 2023 prog prize The Enduring Spirit. Horns up! – Raoul Hernandez

    Austin Blues Festival Day 1 w/ Buddy Guy, Jimmie Vaughan w/ Sue Foley & Soul Man Sam Evans, the Altons & Thee Sinseers, Original Pinettes Brass Band, Dumpstaphunk, Blind Boys of Alabama & Bobby Rush, Nathan & the Zydeco Cha-Chas

    Only narrow-headed fools might grumble that Austin Blues Fest doesn’t have enough blues, when faced with a broad mix of gospel, second line brass, Afro-Cubanism, bounce, soul, jazz, funk, and zydeco that represents both the roots and outgrowths of America’s definitive genre. Purists will dig living treasures Buddy Guy and Bobby Rush (performing with Blind Boys of Alabama; see interview in print this week) as well as Jimmie Vaughan, while Cuban showstopper Cimafunk, NOLA bounce queen Big Freedia, and Southern soul septuagenarian Robert Finley are assured to elicit multi-generational dancing. Meanwhile, Houston-born pianist/producer Robert Glasper – who precedes Sunday’s headliner, Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes – serves as ABF’s lodestar, synthesizing a variety of disciplines into one Black Radio. – Kevin Curtin

    Bad Bunny

    Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio rides into the Texas state capital at exactly the right moment. Between March’s vernal equinox and June’s summer solstice, the Puerto Rican rapper closes some 21st century loop. When COVID took down 2020, up rose Bad Bunny behind insomniac beats and an up-all-night electro purr on breakouts YHLQMDLG and Las que no iban a salir. 2022 summer soundtrack Un Verano Sin Ti reopened the globe, while last fall’s Nadie Sabe Lo Que Va a Pasar Mañana arrived branded by a rodeo bronco and cowboy. – Raoul Hernandez

    Hiromi Uehara

    Pianist Hiromi Uehara studied classical music and wrote jingles in her native Japan, was mentored by the late jazz genius Ahmad Jamal at Berklee College of Music, and has had a prolific career, releasing over a dozen records, joining bass monster Stanley Clarke’s band, and scoring a No. 1 on the Billboard Jazz Albums chart with 2016’s Spark. Uehara’s most recent album, Sonicwonderland, finds her exploring jazz funk fusion with synthesizers, electric pianos, and a crack band featuring trumpet star Adam O’Farrill. “Jazz funk” may be a bad word in some circles, but Hiromi’s joyful attack silences haters with ease. – Michael Toland
