This week’s music picks: Rock and Restock Central Texas Food Bank with Tameca Jones

Look, we’re offering you an opportunity to start your weekend early AND help the Austin community.

Thursday. Emily Wolfe SAFE benefit at Stubb’s indoor. Wolfe took most of 2017 off to strategize and write new music for her debut full-length due out later this year, but she whet our appetites for more new tunes with last year’s single “Holy Roller,” a hard-driving blues rocker propelled by muscular guitar. This show is a benefit for the SAFE Alliance, a local nonprofit that serves survivors of sexual assault and exploitation, child abuse and domestic violence. One hundred percent of ticket sales go to SAFE. $20. 7:45 p.m. doors. 801 Red River St. stubbsaustin.com — D.S.S.

Tameca Jones performs at SXSW 2018. Erika Rich for American-Statesman

Thursday: Rock ‘n’ Restock at the Belmont. Austin’s queen of soul, Tameca Jones, puts on a spectacular show that’s worth the ticket price, but this benefit event for Central Texas Food Bank and the music patronage organization Black Fret also promises a special “super top secret headliner.” Opening the show is local band Shy Beast and DJ Mixer Rogers. $25. 6:30 p.m. doors. 301 W. Sixth St. belmontaustin.com — D.S.S.
