Delta Spirit at Emo’s. This San Diegobased band is a perfect mix of old and new — like strong coffee the night after a wild party. On the new ‘Bushwick Blues,’ I hear the Feelies, swear to Dr. Dog. Selfishly, let’s hope they never get too big because they’ve got such a cool van tour vibe onstage. Welcome home, singer Matt Vasquez, who grew up in Austin and still has family here. With David Vandervelde. $14. 11 p.m. 601 Red River St. www.emosaustin.com. — M.C.
