SISTER HAZEL
8 p.m., Village, $17 adv., $20 d.o.s.

Named in honor of Sister Hazel Williams, an African-American nun who ran a homeless shelter, this five-man crew from Gainesville, Fla., has logged the prior 15 years evolving into a multi-genre recording and touring machine. Their formula involves acoustic, roots-oriented rock, folk and country-tinged layers, appealing grooves, simple, yet sincere lyrical content and, more lately, extended jams and impressive, sweaty guitar work. Solid touring and annual fan gatherings keep the band oiled and inspired, and with Austin folk rockers Nelo and Conway's Adam Hamrick and his band, both also worthy of an advanced listen, this triple bill should soothingly rock the inner soul.
