In a fairly unorthodox move, this week’s music calendar pick is a twofer. Friday night is San Antonio College’s annual free Fredstock. Featured in the SAC parking lot just east of the Jean Longwith Radio, Television & Film Building will be San Antonio-born roots rocker Javier Escovedo & The City Lights, corn-loving cowpunks The Hickoids, the Benny Harp Blues Band, who can tear a harmonica to ribbons, the Anthony Wright Band and DJ Gibb, spinning smooth grooves between sets. The following evening, head down to the Empire Theatre to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of San Antonio’s KSYM 90.1 FM station, the oldest community college radio station in Texas. Featured on the Empire stage will be Mitch Webb & The Swindles, and Los #3 Dinners, holding down San Anto with their interpretation of classic country, soul, blues, rock ‘n’ roll tunes and originals, specifically, “Take a Walk on the Westside” and “Livin’ Inside the Loop.” Closing out the free show will be Extreme Heat. Fredstock: Free, 4-10pm Fri, San Antonio College (Jean Longwith Radio-Television-Film Building in Parking Lot #7), 1819 N. Main Ave., (210) 486-0000, fredstocksatx.com; “50 Years of College Radio” Concert: Free, 6pm Sat, Charline McCombs Empire Theatre, 226 N. St. Mary’s St., (210) 226-3333, majesticempire.com.  Travis Buffkin
