DougSahmTributePosterIn conjunction with the SXSW Film Festival premiere of the Doug Sahm documentary “Sir Doug and the Genuine Texas Cosmic Groove,” SXSW will present an all-star night of songs by the legendary Texas musician on Saturday, March 21, at the Paramount Theatre.

Pianist Marcia Ball’s 1970s Austin band Freda & the Firedogs will reunite to play the event, which starts at 7:30 p.m. The extensive list of guest performers includes Sahm’s former supergroup Texas Tornados, Steve Earle, Charlie Sexton, C.C. Adcock, Terry Allen, Joe “King” Carrasco, Julie Christensen, Rosie Flores and the West Side Horns.

It’s a formal SXSW event, so badges and wristbands will receive priority admission, but some single tickets are available via the Paramount’s website. The documentary, directed by noted Wimberley author Joe Nick Patoski, debuts Thursday at the Paramount, with additional screenings Friday at Alamo Drafthouse on South Lamar and Saturday the the Convention Center’s Vimeo Theater.

Earlier Saturday, Folk Alliance International presents a free public show on indoor and outdoor stages at Threadgill’s World Headquarters with more than a dozen acts. Among the highlights is a 6 p.m. appearance by bluegrass band the HillBenders playing their upcoming album “Tommy: A Bluegrass Opry,” a remake of The Who’s rock opera. Here’s an excerpt:
