This week’s music picks: ACL Fest late shows, Nobelity Project 4×4 and more

Monday: Pete Yorn at Parish. A standout at last year’s ACL Fest, Yorn arrives for a headlining show of his own between the fest’s two ACL weekends at Sixth Street’s premier venue. Yorn’s an interesting career study, with fine rock-pop singer-songwriter records that never quite made him a star yet attracted the likes of Scarlett Johansson for a duo recording project. He’s playing solo acoustic on this tour, with no opener. $30. 8 p.m. 214 E. Sixth St. parishaustin.com. — P.B.

Monday-Thursday: ACL Fest Late Night Shows. Even those not going to Zilker Park can catch some of the bands playing the Austin City Limits Music Festival with official late-night shows at a handful of local venues. Tickets are sold out for some shows, including Car Seat Headrest at the Mohawk and Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real at Antone’s. But plenty of good options remain, including Vulfpeck at Emo’s (Monday-Tuesday, $25), Oh Wonder at Stubb’s (Wednesday, $25-$27) and Muna at the Parish (Thursday, $16). Full list of shows at c3concerts.com/latenight. — P.B.

Wednesday: Nobelity Project 4×4 Fundraiser at Gibson Guitar Showroom. A local organization that promotes education initiatives in Latin America and Kenya, the Nobelity Project is using proceeds from this year’s annual 4×4 event to build a kitchen at a rural school in Kenya. Local luminaries Bob Schneider, Gary P. Nunn, Trish & Darin Murphy, and the Warren Hood Trio will perform five songs each. The $50 ticket includes pre-show food and cocktails. 7 p.m. doors. 3601 S. Congress Ave., Suite G400. nobelity.org. — P.B.

Wednesday: Julian Lage & Chris Eldridge at Cactus Cafe. Adventurous jazz guitarist Lage (who’s worked with Nels Cline, Fred Hersch and others) teams with bluegrass picker Eldridge, whose resume includes the Punch Brothers and the Infamous Stringdusters, for this hot acoustic duo show. The pair recently released “Mount Royal,” their second collaborative album. $12-$15. 8:30 p.m. 2247 Guadalupe St. cactuscafe.org. — P.B.
