Miss Lavelle White at Antone’s. As much as visiting acts such as Bobby Rush and C.J. Chenier add spice to the Antone’s calendar, the revived Austin institution is most valuable for its residency shows by top-notch local blues performers. A fine addition starting this week is Miss Lavelle White, whose seven decades of making music included a couple of albums for the Antone’s record label between 1994 and 2003. $5. 6:30 p.m. 305 E. Fifth St. antonesnightclub.com.
