DINING GUIDE 2017breaking

We ranked Austin's best restaurants. Who made the list?

This week’s music picks: Ray, Rhett, Rock & Restock and more

Monday: Jackie Venson at Geraldine’s. Austin’s next blues sensation takes a break from supporting Gary Clark Jr. on the road to hold down a string of Monday nights at the swanky hotel bar. She’s back on the road solo at the end of the month before rejoining Clark for a few dates in September. Her next EP is set to drop late this year, and our money says she’s about to make the transition from young upstart to rising star. Free. 9:30 p.m. 605 Davis St. geraldinesaustin.com. — D.S.S.

Tuesday: Ray Wylie Hubbard at Waterloo Records. What do you call a record that features guest appearances from Patty Griffin, Lucinda Williams, Eric Church and Bright Light Social Hour? Wimberley cowboy poet Hubbard calls it “Tell the Devil I’m Gettin’ There As Fast As I Can,” and who are we to question his fatalism? Help him celebrate the coming of the end times at this in-store appearance for the album, which officially comes out later in the week but will be available early for those who attend. Free. 5 p.m. 600 N. Lamar Blvd. waterloorecords.com. — P.B.

Thursday: Unplugged at the Grove with Rhett Miller at Shady Grove. KGSR’s popular Blues on the Green shows are now done for the summer, but the station’s smaller weekly series continues for a few more weeks. This one’s a highlight: Miller is best-known for fronting Dallas alt-country rockers the Old 97’s, but he’s made a few solo albums as well, most recently 2015’s “The Traveler.” Free. 8 p.m. 1624 Barton Springs Road. theshadygrove.com/unplugged. — P.B.

Thursday: Rock & Restock at Belmont. This annual benefit for the Central Texas Food Bank and local music patron organization Black Fret features a remarkably diverse lineup. Headliner Ian Moore, a blues-rock guitar prodigy in his teenage Austin days, now lives in the Pacific Northwest but returns often for hometown gigs. Hip-hop artist Zeale is one of the city’s most energetic live performers. Opener Emily Wolfe has gradually transformed from acoustic-folk singer-songwriter to full-on rocker in recent years. The evening also includes DJ Mixer Rogers spinning records. $20. 6:30 p.m. doors. 305 W. Sixth St. thebelmontaustin.com. — P.B.
