Weekend music picks: Finding Euphoria releases club schedule, plus a Huey Lewis tribute

Friday-Saturday: Finding Euphoria club shows in the Red River District. After the EDM Festival scheduled to take place at Carson Creek Ranch failed to secure the proper permits, the local music community rallied to rehouse one of  Austin’s few remaining indie music festivals in Red River clubs. Noticeably missing from the lineup is Slovenian DJ and Producer Gramatik, but you can catch Boogie T at Empire Garage Friday. On Saturday, Hippie Sabotage takes over the Garage, Blackgummy plays the Mohawk and a special guest headlines at Barracuda. Friday $15; Saturday  $54 euphoriafest.com — D.S.S.

 

Friday: Huey Lewis tribute & benefit at Nutty Brown Amphitheatre. This was supposed to be a concert by Bay Area great Lewis and his band the News, but he called off all future dates last month because of significant hearing loss resulting from Meniere’s Disease, a serious inner ear condition. To help promote awareness and raise money, this tribute show was put together featuring local musician George Devore’s humorously dubbed outfit “Chewy Spewis & the Screws.” Proceeds go to the American Hearing Research Foundation. $10-$70. 6 p.m. 12225 Highway 290. nuttybrown.com. — P.B.
