This week's schedule


Both HAIM and Thundercat have released new music recently, and both artists will be appearing on TV shows this Monday. As the week continues, look for Dixie Chicks (Thursday on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert), who are back with a new song, "Gaslighter," which Jill Riley gave its debut on The Current last week. On Friday, Brittany Howard appears on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, still reveling in the success of her solo album, Jaime.

When the weekend arrives, Austin City Limits unearth another from its rich archive, airing an episode from late 2018 featuring sets of music by Sam Smith and Anderson East.
