On the cover in not-your-average-pair of mom jeans, the 29-year-old Austin native boasts of her greatest accomplishment yet: “Man, I just delivered a nine-pound, 10-ounce baby. I’m a bad motherfucker,” she beams on “Jackie (B.M.F.).” $20-$45, 7pm Sat, Aztec Theatre, 201 E. Commerce, (210) 760-2196, — Matt Stieb
