This week’s music picks: ACL Hall of Fame, Reverend Horton Heat, more

Tuesday: Reverend Horton Heat at Continental Club. SoCo’s historic Continental is an anchor for a lot of roots-based musical styles, including on-the-fringes varietals such as psychobilly. Dallas band Reverend Horton Heat has been at the forefront of the punk-rockabilly hybrid genre for decades, and they seem a perfect fit for the week leading up to Halloween — which is why the Continental has booked them for six straight nights, beginning Tuesday. The band is bringing along a few special-guest ringers: Unknown Hinson (Tuesday-Wednesday), Big Sandy (Thursday-Friday) and Robert Gordon (Saturday-Sunday). $25-$30. 10:30 p.m. (different local acts open each night). 1315 S. Congress Ave. continentalclub.com. — P.B.

Wednesday: Austin City Limits Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony at ACL Live. The fourth class of inductees into this esteemed honorary circle are the Neville Brothers, Rosanne Cash and Roy Orbison. Cash and two of the Nevilles (Art and Ivan) will be on hand, along with host Chris Isaak and a smorgasbord of stars who will perform in tribute to the inductees, including Raul Malo, Ry Cooder, Neko Case, Brandi Carlile and Trombone Shorty. $50-$300. 7:30 p.m. 310 Willie Nelson Blvd. acl-live.com. — P.B.

Thursday: Jimmy Webb at One World Theatre. When legendary songwriter Webb played in Austin last year, he paid special tribute to his close friend Glen Campbell, who was in the final stages of Alzheimer’s. Now that Campbell’s gone, Webb will no doubt revisit some of their great collaborations, but he may also cast a wider net over his own fascinating career, the early part of which is detailed in his new memoir “Cake in the Rain.” $25-$65. 8 p.m. 7701 Bee Caves Road. oneworldtheatre.org. Webb also will appear at 5 p.m. Wednesday at Waterloo Records for a conversation about the memoir with yours truly. (Free, 600 N. Lamar Blvd., waterloorecords.com.) — P.B.
