This week’s music: Blues on the Green finale, a $5 set from De La Soul’s DJ

Tuesday: Mary Black at One World Theatre. With more than a dozen solo albums in addition to work with renowned traditional groups such as De Dannan, Black has been one of Ireland’s most accomplished folk singers of the past several decades. These days it’s the next generation that has been getting the attention, as her daughter Roisin O released an album in 2012 and son Danny O’Reilly plays in Irish rock band the Coronas. But Black is still well worth hearing, and she’s touring to celebrate the 30th anniversary of one of her best records, “By the Time It Gets Dark.” $30-$70. 8 p.m. 7701 Bee Caves Road. oneworldtheatre.org. — P.B.

Wednesday: Maseo at Cheer Up Charlie’s. DJ Maseo of the legendary hip-hop crew De La Soul is in the house to drop a sizzling set of hip-hop, funk, soul and boogie. Yes you’ll sweat, but you’ll also break it down and get lifted. Also on the bill are DJ Orion of Peligrosa and Prince Klassen. $5. 9 p.m. doors. 900 Red River St. cheerupcharlies.com — D.S.S.

Wednesday: Texas Radio Live with Jo Carol Pierce, Lili Blessing at Guero’s. Word surfaced recently that West Texas song-poet Pierce, who made waves first locally and then nationally with her theater-piece/album “Bad Girls Upset By the Truth” in the early 1990s, is working on a follow-up that may see the light of day soon. She may preview some of that at this appearance on Sun Radio’s live broadcast under the shade trees in the oak garden at Guero’s. Opening is Lili Blessing, whose first album “Lifeline,” released earlier this year, was an auspicious singer-songwriter debut. Free (donations accepted). 6 p.m. 1412 S. Congress Ave. gueros.com. — P.B.
