The Migrant, El Campo, Parallelephants

With coffee shop-tender songs about ponies, The Migrant – a Danish immigrant – picks back up with his Austin crew to help empower his folksy delivery. Purveyors of the new school of high and lonesome harmonies, claw-picking banjo and a steel guitar smooth as molasses, El Campo have 'rassled '90s emo to the dirt and raised it back up in Wranglers – spitting dip and getting all sentimental out on the oil rig. Parallelephants look like Ikea employees playing music for shopping in Ikea. 9pm, Paper Tiger, 2410 N. St. Mary's St.

Big K.R.I.T.

It’s no wonder that K.R.I.T. stands for a “King Remembered In Time,” which, in this case, could almost be taken literally. From a technical standpoint, K.R.I.T. is an exceptional rapper, channeling the socio-political fodder of Goodie Mob, the charismatic gusto of Pimp C, and the Southern p-funk of Big Boi circa Speakerboxxx. With BJ the Chicago Kid, $25-$30, 8pm, Alamo City Music Hall, 1305 E. Houston St.
