This week’s music picks: George Winston, A Giant Dog, more

Wednesday-Thursday: George Winston at One World Theatre. Long one of America’s most prominent pianists, Winston contracted a blood condition that required a bone marrow transplant a couple of years ago, which led to some time spent at the City of Hope medical center in Los Angeles. While there, he started writing what became “Spring Carousel,” his 17th album, which came out last spring with proceeds benefiting City of Hope. If you come for his old classics such as his seasons-themed meditations and his ubiquitous rendition of Pachelbel’s “Canon,” you’ll likely also very much appreciate the newer material. $25-$98. 8 p.m. 7701 Bee Caves Road. — P.B.

Thursday: A Giant Dog at Beerland. Since they signed to Merge Records in 2016, Austin’s favorite barroom bruisers have released two excellent new albums and logged thousands of miles on the road, their glam punk antics winning new fans across the country and around the world. But for the month of February, they return to their roots with a residency gig every Thursday at one of the city’s favorite garage rock dives. Lola Tried and the Flesh Lights are also on the bill. $8. 8 p.m. doors. 711 Red River St. — D.S.S.
