House of Songs showcase at the Townsend. The local woodshedding haven for international musicians wraps up its first-ever Songwriters Summit with performances by more than a dozen visitors and locals who have spent the past week collaborating on new material. They include Tom Levin, Mariette Hansson and Dennis Kalla of Sweden; Cris Derksen, Sarah McDougall, Lydia Hol and Paul Pigat of Canada; Gareth Bonello of Wales; Ida Wenoe of Denmark; and locals Matt the Electrician, Shawnee Kilgore, Graham Weber, Raina Rose and Daniel Thomas Phipps. The whole group then will travel to Kansas City for the annual Folk Alliance International convention. $5. 7 p.m. 718 Congress Ave. thetownsendaustin.com.

Also: It’s no surprise to find Dale Watson at the Continental Club on a Monday night, but since it’s the eve of his big Ameripolitan Music Awards show, he’s bringing along a couple of ringers in California guitar slinger James Intveld and rockabilly siren Kim Lenz. … Blue Monday is rolling again at Antone’s with Derek O’Brien and band. … Singer-songwriter Jaimee Harris continues a February residency at Cactus Cafe. … Mystery Monday is missing host Christine Albert, who’ll be at the Grammys on this night per her work with the Recording Academy, but the show goes on at El Mercado Backstage with special guests Warren Hood and Sophia Johnson.
