This week’s music picks: Buddy Guy, Mobley, LeRois and more

Wednesday: The Wine Down with Mobley at 3Ten. This is your last chance to catch our August Austin360 Artist of the Month before he hits the road on a cross-country jaunt that puts him out of town till he hits the big stage at Austin City Limits Fest later this fall. It’s also a free happy-hour show with wine tastings and bites. So come groove along to some of the catchiest post-genre pop our city has to offer. Free. 5 p.m. 310 Willie Nelson Blvd. 3tenaustin.com — D.S.S.

Wednesday: LeRoi Brothers, Tommy Shannon Blues Band, Bill Carter at Antone’s. Hump day at Antone’s has been reliably one of the best nights of the week at the home of the blues since the club reopened a year and a half ago. The bulletproof anchor is an early-show residency with Rock and Roll Hall of Fame bassist Tommy Shannon’s outfit, now with the added bonus of a set by storied blues-rock songwriter Bill Carter (who has a new self-titled album out). The late show features a rotating cast of Antone’s favorites, and this week’s choice is a timely one: Jungle Records recently put out a deluxe reissue of “Check This Action,” with six tracks added to the original dozen on the band’s classic 1983 LP. Admission is $10 for the 6:30 p.m. early show; get in free for the LeRois’ 10 p.m. set as part of a monthlong celebration of the 30th birthday of Antone’s Record Shop. 305 E. Fifth St. antonesnightclub.com. — P.B.

Thursday: Buddy Guy at ACL Live. There was a really special moment at the old Austin City Limits Studio 6A a few years ago when Buddy Guy and Willie Nelson, two musicians who fully warrant the oft-overused “living legend” tag, took part in a salute to ACL Hall of Fame inductee Stevie Ray Vaughan. Turns out the two had never previously met. Guy’s been a regular guest, though, at ACL Live, aka “the house that Willie built” (see his statue out front). Once upon a time, the blues guitar master was in his element at Antone’s, Austin’s home of the blues. But he’s long since outgrown smaller rooms in a career that has included seven Grammy Awards, including one for his 2015 album “Born to Play Guitar.” Quinn Sullivan opens. $39-$62. 8 p.m. 310 Willie Nelson Blvd. acl-live.com. — P.B.
