Silversun Pickups/Electric Guest:
Official ACL Music Festival Late Night Show

Leave it to Austin City Limits to make the annual festival even bigger (beyond expanding to two weekends and jacking up weekend passes to near the $300 mark, that is). ACL’s official Late Night Shows will farm out mid-level bands for one-off performances throughout the fest’s two weekends. For SA’s part, ACL will dispatch Los Angeles-based grunge-pop outfit Silversun Pickups (who have further honed their Smashing Pumpkins sound on last year’s Neck of the Woods) along with openers Electric Guest. $20-$22, 7pm, White Rabbit, 2410 N St. Mary’s, —J.D.

Avenged Sevenfold
Avenged Sevenfold comes to SA soon after scoring its second consecutive Billboard 200 No. 1 album: Hail to the King, which was released August 23 and replicated the success of its predecessor, 2010’s Nightmare. On September 22, the band fulfilled one of their lifelong dreams: to perform at Brazil’s Rock in Rio Festival, immediately preceding Iron Maiden, on the closing night of a week previously headlined by Bruce Springsteen, Justin Timberlake, Beyoncé, Muse, Metallica and Bon Jovi. Openers for the SA show will be Ghost B.C. and honorary San Antonians, Deftones. $51.63-$65.77, 7pm, AT&T Center, One AT&T Center, —Enrique Lopetegui

Todd Snider
Agnostics, stoners and lefties with a twang rejoice, your bard, country-folkster Todd Snider will play a special acoustic set two nights in a row at the lovely Gruene Hall. Though Snider’s been gigging and recording steadily since the 1980s, he only recently came to be embraced by the redneck hippie brigade with his gutsy 2008 antiwar album Peace Queer. He carried that sardonic tune forward on 2012’s even-better Agnostic Hymns and Stoner Fables. However angry, his songs still manage to put a smile on listeners’ faces with their sly lyrics and laid-back grooves. $20, 9:30pm Fri, 10:30pm Sat, Gruene Hall, 1281 Gruene Road (New Braunfels), —Callie Enlow

Nine Inch Nails
On September 3, Trent Reznor released the acclaimed Hesitation Marks, Nine Inch Nails’ first album since 2008’s The Slip. The album, produced by Reznor and longtime collaborators Atticus Ross and Alan Moulder, set up a tour almost as ambitious, no small thing for a man known for huge live multimedia events. He comes to SA with Austin’s Explosions in the Sky as the opening act. According to early Billboard reports, the Tension 2013 tour has a solid mix of the “human element” and “NIN’s brutal trademark technological precision.” $49.57-$109.53, 7:30pm, AT&T Center, One AT&T Center, —EL
