The last of South by Southwest’s three free Auditorium Shores shows is now set: Singer-songwriter Ray LaMontagne, with members of My Morning Jacket as his backing band, will headline a show on Thursday, March 17.

LaMontagne will perform his new album “Ouroboros,” which was produced by My Morning Jacket leader Jim James, in its entirety as part of the show. He’ll take the stage at 8 p.m., with opening acts Thao & the Get Down Stay Down (7 p.m.), Brian Fallon of Gaslight Anthem (6 p.m.), Parker Millsap (5 p.m.) and Austin’s own Carson McHone (4 p.m.).

Gates open at 2 p.m. Admission is free but attendees must have a SXSW Guest Pass, obtainable via the SXSW website.
