This week’s music picks: Jump on It, Guided By Voices, more

Wednesday. Jump on It with Derez De’shon, Trae tha Truth at Travis County Expo Center. East Austin’s long-running music in the park series, hosted by Charles “Nook Turner” Byrd, moves to the fairgrounds for all ages concerts every Wednesday through Aug. 18 (excluding July 4). The kickoff event is a hip-hop double bill featuring Atlanta up-and-comer Derez De’Shon and Houston kingpin Trae tha Truth. In addition to the mainstage, radio station KAZI will operate a smaller stage featuring old school soul and R&B. There’s also a game zone for grown folks and kids. Free before 6:30 p.m., $5 after. 7311 Decker Lane. Shuttle service available from Givens Park. — D.S.S.

Wednesday: Guided By Voices at Mohawk outdoor. By now the lore of elementary school teacher turned rock ’n’ roller Robert Pollard is long entrenched, and adding up Ohio band Guided By Voices’ complete discography might break a calculator. But there’s still some interesting turns here, as the band tours behind its new album “Space Gun,” not the least of which is the presence in the current lineup of Bobby Bare Jr., son of the country music legend and an accomplished indie-rocker in his own right. Park Doing opens. $25. 6:30 p.m. doors. 912 Red River St. — P.B.
