Pine­top Perkins and friends at An­tone’s. In Austin, July is blues month. Help the blues pi­ano icon cel­e­brate his 97th birth­day, while also fêt­ing 35 years of An­tone’s. Perkins (who’ll be tour­ing in Spain on his ac­tual birth­day Wed­nes­day) will be joined by Bill Carter and the Blame and other lu­mi­nar­ies. And come early for the Peter­son Broth­ers from Bas­trop, who are 86 and 84 years younger than the head­liner. 9 p.m. 213 W. Fifth St. www. an­ — Michael Cor­co­ran

... And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead, Girl In A Coma at the Beauty Bar. De­sign and screen print­ing out­let Pure Grease launches — ap­pro­pri­ately — in style with a bar­rage of great Cen­tral Texas acts, from Trail of Dead’s stir­ring art rock to Girl In A Coma’s take-no-pris­on­ers gui­tar cat­er­waul. With a lineup like that, Pure Grease should have no trou­ble pack­ing the venue from pa­tio to hair dry­ers. With Ea­gle Claw, Lights Go Out, Markov, White Rhino, Not in the Face and Mel­o­grand. 7 p.m. $10. 617 E. Sev­enth St. www.mys­­ty­ba­raustin. — Pa­trick Cald­well

Jamey John­son at White­wa­ter Am­phithe­ater. This bearded singer from Alabama is the hottest new artist in coun­try mu­sic, with such tunes as 2008 coun­try song of the year ‘In Color’ and ‘Ma­con,’ from up­com­ing CD ‘The Gui­tar Song,’ mak­ing South­ern rock safe for main­stream coun­try, while stay­ing true to such in­flu­ences as Lynyrd Skynyrd and Mar­shall Tucker Band. This Canyon Lake triple bill is head­lined by Robert Earl Keen, with Bruce Ro­bi­son in sup­port, so ex­pect the crowd to reach the ca­pac­ity of 5,600. Go to www. white­wa­ter­ for ad­vance tix ($19.40). 7 p.m. 11860 FM 306. — M.C.

T-Bird and the Breaks, the Bright Light So­cial Hour and ’Til We’re Blue or De­stroy

at Sea­holm Power Plant. The big show goes down at the Back­yard, as Wil­lie’s pic­nic re­turns to Austin, but those look­ing for a cheaper date — and a heck­uva lot less has­sle park­ing — can mosey over to the Sea­holm’s art deco digs, where up-and-com­ing soul stir­rers T-Bird and the Breaks head­line a roar­ing ben­e­fit for An­thro­pos Arts. 4 p.m. Free. 214 West Ave. an­thro­posarts.word­ — P.C.

Also rec­om­mended: Wil­lie Nel­son, Asleep at the Wheel, Billy Joe Shaver, Kris Kristof­fer­son and more at the Back­yard, Ju­nior Brown and Tanya Rae at the Con­ti­nen­tal Club, Bob Schneider and Quiet Com­pany at the Nutty Brown Cafe.


Dan Dyer at the Con­ti­nen­tal Club Gallery. It’s a slow night for live mu­sic, so go for a safe bet. Dyer’s slinky soul sat­is­fies. Free. 10:30 p.m. 1315 S. Congress Ave. www.con­ti­nen­tal­ — M.C.

Also rec­om­mended: Two Hoots and a Holler at the Con­ti­nen­tal Club, Charles Thi­bodeaux at Evan­ge­line Cafe, Re­pub­lic of Texas Big Band at the High­ball.


Ed­ward Sharpe and the Mag­netic Zeros

at La Zona Rosa. Alex Ebert, vo­cal­ist for the bril­liantly named power pop group Ima Robot, rein­vented him­self in 2009 as the front man for psy­che­delic pop en­sem­ble Ed­ward Sharpe and the Mag­netic Zeros, craft­ing a high-con­cept story line that re­cast Ebert as a way­ward rock ’n’ roll mes­siah from be­yond the stars. Schtick like that could grate — if the band it­self wasn’t one of the most op­er­atic, thrilling, catchy acts to emerge in the past year. 8 p.m. Show is tech­ni­cally sold out. 612 W. Fourth St.­ — P.C.

Also rec­om­mended: Wild Amer­ica and Lit­er­a­ture at Trailer Space Records, Is­lands at the Parish, Cage at the Mo­hawk.


Soul Track Mind at T.C.’s Lounge. Austin’s soul re­vival gets boost points when it plays out at T.C.’s, a juke joint so au­then­tic that 150 white col­lege kids can’t di­lute the pure Joe Tex vibe. Sharks are jumped ev­ery Mon­day night when the frat pack de­scends like it’s quar­ter beer night, but Wed­nes­days are more like hop­ping the floun­der. This seven-piece pow­er­house makes the old wooden joint wob­ble. $5. 10 p.m. 1413 Web­berville Road. 926-2200. — M.C.

Also rec­om­mended: Ale­jan­dro Es­covedo at Zilker Park (free), Thrice at Emo’s, Johnny Goudie at Momo’s, Soul­phon­ics at Carousel Lounge.
