Alan Paul and Andy Aledort at BookPeople. The two veteran music journalists were perhaps uniquely positioned to put together the amazing “Texas Flood: The Inside Story of Stevie Ray Vaughan,” a massive, exceptionally smooth oral history of perhaps the most beloved musician (not named Willie) in Austin past, present and probably future. The book doesn’t shy away from Vaughan’s descent into a miasma of drugs and booze, but it gives him plenty of credit for getting his life back together before his tragic death. They'll talk and sign it at 2 p.m. Saturday. Free. 603 N. Lamar Blvd. — Joe Gross


"Rachel Dory" at Ao5 Gallery. The Austin-based artist is known for her site-specific paintings of roadside America.

Opening reception 7 to 9 p.m. Saturday. 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday-Wednesday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and 12 to 5 p.m. Sunday through Sept. 15. 3005 S.

RAS Day at Empire Garage. The annual music festival from Riders Against the Storm marries music and healing energy. This year’s lineup features rising rapper Leikeili47 and Madison McFerrin, who is building on her father, Bobby’s, legacy with a fresh take on a capella music. “Beyond the aspect of healing and music and community, (RAS Day has) really been about putting women at the forefront,” Jonathan Mahone, a.k.a. Chaka from RAS, says. Local soul legend Miss Lavelle White, among others, rounds out the bill. 6 p.m. Saturday. $25 in advance. 606 E. Seventh St. — Deborah Sengupta Stith


Southern Tropic IPA Can Release at Pinthouse Pizza. Pinthouse continues to push the boundaries of what an IPA can be with this never-before-launched beer. The brew team focused on creating a vastly tropical IPA with immense usage of Galaxy hops, the wild-fruit- and citrus-laden Comet hops from Crosby Hop Farm, and an overlay of pineapple from Cashmere hops. Take your tastebuds on an otherworldly adventure to the southern tropics. The cans will be only at the Round Rock location. 10 a.m. Saturday. Free. 2800 Hoppe Trail.


"A Bigger Splash" screening. The Contemporary Austin and Austin Film Society have teamed up to host an evening screening of a newly restored landmark film.

Members of both organizations will have a discount to attend. 6:45 p.m. Saturday. $9.25-$11.25. AFS Cinema, 6406 N. Interstate 35, Suite 3100.
