DEBORAH SENGUPTA STITH
11:30 a.m. Mobley (Miller Lite): The catchiest pop act to come out of Austin since Spoon.
12:15 p.m. Capyac (Tito’s): Electro-funk dance party anyone?
1 p.m. Mondo Cozmo (Barton Springs): Swells of joy will spill across Zilker Park as Joshua Ostrander’s triumphant pop anthems draw friends and lovers together in a swaying top-of-lung singalong.
2 p.m. A$AP Ferg (American Express): After dropping a solid 2016 release that was introspective and aspirational, this year’s followup was a largely forgettable journey back into standard trap tropes with sex and drugs aplenty, but if you’re looking to turn up, this is the spot.
3 p.m. Benjamin Booker (Miller Lite): On his new album, “Witness,” Booker maintains the same anarchic punk approach to gut-bucket blues that won him fans with his self-titled debut three years ago, but he’s matured as a songwriter. Vulnerability creeps in as he downshifts into confessional gospel and wistful folk.
4 p.m. Thundercat (Tito’s): A fearless jazz weirdo and acclaimed Kendrick Lamar collaborator who crafts surprisingly accessible story songs out of technically mind-boggling riffs.
5 p.m. The Black Angels (Barton Springs): The legacy of Austin psychedelic music blazes on with “Death Song,” the rich collection of reverb-soaked rock these next-generation fuzz fanatics wrote in the shadow of the 2016 election.
6 p.m. Ice Cube (American Express): If you’re wondering where Cube’s set will fall on a scale of “Amerikkka’s Most Wanted” to “Are We There Yet?” listen to his new single “Good Cop, Bad Cop.” No roses will be handed out during this year’s legacy rap performance.
7 p.m. Tove Lo (Barton Springs): Sexy, suave pop to shimmy you through the transition from day to night.
8 p.m. Chance the Rapper (Honda): Chancelor Bennett is one of the most authentic hip-hop voices of his generation, and he is determined to use his superpowers for good.
