John Fogerty


Not many artists could release a record that features such disparate collaborators as the Zac Brown Band, the Foo Fighters, Keith Urban, Alan Jackson, Bob Seger, Dawes, Brad Paisley, Miranda Lambert, Tom Morello and Kid Rock. However, on 2013's Wrote a Song for Everyone, John Fogerty, former frontman for corner store bluegrass rock 'n' rollers Creedence Clearwater Revival, did just that. And, yeah, the record is an attempt at familiarizing the younger generations with the bard of the bayou, the Berkeley-born singer, songwriter and one hell of a guitar picker who you would've thought crawled right out of the gumbo-humid Delta; but the son of a bitch has earned it. $50-$150, 8pm, The Majestic Theatre, 224 E. Houston St., (210) 226-3333

Nic Armstrong & the Thieves

Sounding like the whole British invasion of the '60s - not the '90s Britpop explosion - Nic Armstrong and the Thieves do justice to the formative decade, while still doing their own thing. $5, 9pm, Limelight, 2718 N. St. Mary's St., (210) 735-7775

Ill Niño 15th Anniversary Tour


With half the band sporting Rapunzel-length dreadlocks, probably 'cause they look "cooler" when they headbang in sync, Latin metal group Ill Niño falls more on the nü side of the brooding genre than the Latin. $16, 7pm, Fitzgerald's, 437 McCarty Road, (210) 629-5141

Moodie Black


In a gathering of forces that can only be fated by the gods of some supremely menacing hip-hop netherworld, Limelight is presenting one hell of a Friday the 13th show this week. At the top of the bill, Minneapolis noise-rap outfit Moodie Black plies a positively excruciating form of horror-enthused hip-hop that’s as jarring as it is without precedent. Local support will be provided by SA’s Ghost Palace (among others), a more traditional hip-hop act that nevertheless keeps its lyrical focus on the darker, grittier side of things and its production in the urban gothic vein. $5, 9pm, Limelight, 2718 N. St. Mary's St., (210) 735-7775

Freddie Gibbs: A Shadow of Doubt Tour


On "Fuckin' Up The Count," the Cardinal sin of slanging, Gary, Indiana's Freddie Gibbs chronicles the realities of hood success over a forlorn minor Rhodes riff. $18, 8pm, Alamo City Music Hall, 1305 E. Houston St.

The Charlie Daniels Band

The lyrics on Daniels' "Long-Haired Country Boy" are so perfect and classic it's only a shame that there is no belt big enough on which to emblazon them. $59.50, 7pm, Gruene Hall, 1281 Gruene Road, (830) 606-1281
