Ariana Grande at Erwin Center. At 22, Grande has already had an illustrious career, parlaying early Broadway stage and Nickelodeon TV roles into a recording career that has produced chart-topping records in each of the past two years. Her Austin date comes near the end of a long world tour, after which she’ll be working on her third album, “Moonlight,” and appearing in the upcoming film “Zoolander 2.” Prince Royce opens. $20-$69.50. 7:30 p.m. 1701 Red River St. uterwincenter.com.

Also: Originally from Wales but raised partly in Greece, Marina & the Diamonds leader Marina Diamandis brings a cosmopolitan touch to the pop music she’ll play on the outdoor stage at Stubb’s with opening act Shamir. … New England folk-rocker Matt Nathanson, whose new album “Show Me Your Fangs” came out last week, plays a sold-out show at the Parish. … Local residencies of note include guitarist David Grissom at Saxon Pub, reggae band Atash at Flamingo Cantina and troubadour Freddie Steady Krc at Stella San Jac.
