Blonde Redhead at the Mohawk.As indie rock bands go, Blonde Redhead has been fairly all over the map, perhaps owing to its 1990s roots in an alt-rock scene that differed somewhat from the modern indie culture. Geographical diversity may have broadened their sound as well: Though they met in New York, singer Kazu Makino was born in Japan, and her twin-brother bandmates Amedeo and Simone Pace are Italian natives who were raised in Montreal. They’re touring behind "Barragan," their ninth studio album. Dot Hacker opens. 6:30 p.m. doors Monday. $20. 912 Red River St. mohawkaustin.com. — Peter Blackstock
"Craft Beer Revolution" talk. Twenty-five years into running one of the top craft breweries in the U.S., Brooklyn Brewery co-founder Steve Hindy looks back with his fellow craft beer comrades —including brewers at Black Star Co-op, Real Ale and Austin Beerworks and beer blogger Caroline Wallace — to discuss the circumstances and ambitions that allowed a handful of people across the country to challenge one of the largest corporate dynasties in American history. Hindy’s new book, "Craft Beer Revolution," tells the stories of these pioneering brewers. 8 p.m. Tuesday. $6. Austin Beerworks, 3009 Industrial Terrace. brooklynbrewerymash.com/austin.
Chris D’Elia. It occurs to me that you see him so often as an actor, you might not even be aware that the star of NBC’s "Whitney" and centerpiece of the same network’s "Undateable" is also a gifted stand-up comic. Well, consider yourself schooled. The scruffy star has been standing in front of brick walls and telling jokes since 2006. Well, telling jokes probably isn’t entirely accurate — D’Elia basically tells stories, brilliantly inhabiting the roles of his anecdotes’ characters. Whatever it is, it’s a hoot. 7:30 p.m. Friday. $36-$41. Paramount Theatre, 713 Congress Ave. 512-474-1221, www.austintheatre.org. — Dale Roe
