Music

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. $20. 912 Red River St. mohawkaustin.com. — Peter Blackstock

Lecture

Javier Sicilia lecture at the University of Texas. Mexican author and activist Javier Sicilia presents a lecture titled "State Crisis and Civilian Dignity in Mexico," touching on the extreme violence currently afflicting Mexico. As Sicilia will note in the lecture — spoken in Spanish with a simultaneous English translation — the violence is exacerbated by historic government corruption and the drug war, which to date has claimed more than 100,000 lives, more than 30,000 disappearances and more than 350,000 displaced citizens. In this lecture, Sicilia will touch on these themes, exploring the work of the two social movements that have most successfully uncovered and confronted the enormous crisis in Mexico: zapatismo and the Movement for Peace with Justice and Dignity (MPJD), of which he is the leader. 6 p.m. Monday. Free. Texas Union Building, University of Texas. www.utexas.edu/cola/insts/llilas/news/8629

Upcoming

Amy Schumer. Don’t let Schumer’s girl-next-door looks deceive you. The insanely popular comedian can keep up with the best of the bad boys. She proved it on "Inside Amy Schumer," her Comedy Central series, her highly rated special, "Mostly Sex Stuff," and those raunchy celebrity roasts. The humor can be a little brutal, but there’s a lot of smart and clever mixed in there, too. 8 p.m. Friday. $37.50-$45.00. Bass Concert Hall, 2350 E. Campus Drive. 512-471-2787, texasperformingarts.org.— Dale Roe
