Sam Prekop at Red 7. “The Republic,” the new album from Sam Prekop, co-founder of artsy post rock outfit the Sea and Cake, is a broad experiment in synthesizer atmospherics. Conceived as the soundtrack for a video installation at an NYC Gallery, the music alternates between an ominous, disconcerting drone and and skittery punctuations. For his current tour, he’s been mixing the new material in with old college rock faves from the band that made him famous. Local acts Abram Shook and My Empty Phantom open. $15. 611 E. Seventh St. Doors at 8 p.m. red7austin.com. (Prekop also plays a free 5 p.m. in-store at Waterloo Records.) — D.S.S.

Also: The rain-rescheduled opener of KGSR’s “Blues on the Green” series at Zilker Park features a 40th anniversary celebration for Antone’s with host Jimmie Vaughan and other local blues luminaries. … Northern California punk-poppers The Story So Far, touring behind their just-released, self-titled third album, play outdoors at the Mohawk with Four Year Strong and Terror. … Free live radio shows on South Congress find Churchwood and Chablis on Sun Radio’s “Texas Radio Live” while Stoney LaRue and Jonathan Garcia play KOKE’s “Free Texas Music” at Hill’s Cafe. … Other top local options include Jon Dee Graham at the Continental Club with Painted Redstarts and Jennifer Ellen Cook at ABGB.
