Misfits/The Attack
Though they roll into town a little late for Día de Los Muertos, hardcore heroes and horror-punk originators the Misfits aim to pack Mission County Park with tees emblazoned with their signature skull. At one time, the absence of singer Glenn Danzig may have been a detriment, but his show-ruining diva antics have established the Jerry Only-led, Danzig-less lineup as the incarnation to catch for a slam-dancing good time. With four-piece the Attack, still “too punk for hardcore and too hardcore for punk.” (Full disclosure: After editorial completed this write-up, the Current business department became a promotional partner.) $20, 6pm, Mission County Park No. 1, 6030 Padre Drive, —Matt Stieb

Pencil in MGMT, Slayer, M.I.A., Snoop Dog (aka Snoop Lion), Descendants, Tenacious D, the Walkmen, Lupe Fiasco, Deerhunter and lots more during three days and nights of music. In its eighth annual edition, FFFF has consolidated itself as the perfect festival: big enough for one to feel there’s a great party going on, and small enough to enjoy the fact that you’re not at Austin City Limits or South by Southwest—at FFFF, you can actually walk and be able to see something without having to get there early and wait under the scorching sun for endless hours. $79-$325, 10am-11pm, Auditorium Shores, 800 W Riverside (Austin), —EL

Hot off the chart-topping strength of the freshly released Nothing Was the Same, history’s greatest Canadian, half-Jewish, child-acting rapper will bring his Would You Like a Tour? tour through the AT&T Center after first postponing it “due to an intense rehearsal schedule and technical production requirements that will be part of the show,” according to Pitchfork. Along for the ride are R&B wunderkind Miguel (“Sure Thing,” “Adorn”) and hazy hit-maker Future (“Neva End”), rounding out perhaps the gushiest hip-hop bill since Bone Thugz-n-Harmony’s ill-fated Thugs & Kisses tour in ’95. $99-$375, 7pm, AT&T Center, One AT&T Center, —JDS

Girl in a Coma/Hacienda/Tele Novella
Few bands fall into the fortunate setup of enlisting one of the world’s biggest rock stars as a diehard advocate, let alone getting him to produce all their records and take them along on tour. However, after all of their Dan Auerbach-assisted rise, SA’s Hacienda hit a major patch of misfortune earlier this year with the departure of guitarist Dante Schwebel. Now a trio, the Villanueva brothers will work to maintain the momentum of their fantastic 2012 release Shakedown. With hometown heroes Girl in a Coma and Austin’s Tele Novella. $10-$15, Doors at 8pm, Backstage Live, 1305 E Houston, (210) 446-7950, —JDS
