Wed. Jan. 20 | Austin, Texas' "Dirty Old One Man Band" has grown both into and out of that handle: older, sure, but washed clean like a backwoods baptism. His latest, Nothin' But Blood (Bloodshot), is precise phlebotomy set to a vicious stomp. Strahan & the Good Neighbors and Meschiya Lake & Friends open at 10 p.m. at Siberia.
Fri. Jan. 22 | Jazz and blues vocalist Maria Muldaur is best known for her 1974 hit "Midnight at the Oasis," but she also covered Danny Barker's "Don't You Feel My Leg." She closes the Danny Barker Banjo and Guitar Festival with an all-star lineup at 8 p.m. at Palm Court Jazz Cafe.

Fri. Jan. 22 | From No Limit to the parish limits: Southport Hall is the unlikely haven for 1990s New Orleans rap. The Jefferson venue hosted Mystikal's getting-out party last year, and here it pairs PNC and Jubilee in a gold-grill Voltron. At 9 p.m.

Fri. Jan. 22 | Todd Rundgren established himself producing albums for others (New York Dolls, Hall & Oates, Meat Loaf) in the 1970s, but the guitarist has worn many hats in the music business and released his 25th album, Global, last year. At 8 p.m. at Tipitina's.
