End of the month music: Wine Down with Mobley, Home of the blues humpday

Eyes and ears still working after the eclipse? Here are a few music picks for the last week in August.

Wednesday, August 30: Mobley at 3Ten. This is your last chance to catch our August Austin360 Artist of the Month before he hits the road on a cross-country jaunt that puts him out of town till he hits the big stage at Austin City Limits Fest later this fall. It’s also a free happy hour show with wine tastings and bites. So come groove along to some of the catchiest post-genre pop our city has to offer. Free. 5 p.m. 310 Willie Nelson Blvd. 3tenaustin.com — D.S.S.

Wednesday, August 30: LeRoi Brothers, Tommy Shannon Blues Band, Bill Carter at Antone’s. Hump day at Antone’s has been reliably one of the best nights of the week at the home of the blues since the club reopened a year and a half ago. The bulletproof anchor is an early-show residency with Rock and Roll Hall of Fame bassist Tommy Shannon’s outfit, now with the added bonus of a set by storied blues-rock songwriter Bill Carter (who has a new self-titled album out). The late show features a rotating cast of Antone’s favorites, and this week’s choice is a timely one: Jungle Records recently put out a deluxe reissue of “Check This Action,” with six tracks added to the original dozen on the band’s classic 1983 LP. Admission is $10 for the 6:30 p.m. early show; get in free for the LeRois’ 10 p.m. set as part of a monthlong celebration of the 30th birthday of Antone’s Record Shop. 305 E. Fifth St. antonesnightclub.com. — P.B.

Catch a free show with our August Artist of the Month, Mobley, before he hits the road.
