Get started on checking off your Barks for Beers, plus more Monday fun
“Good Luck with the Sun” at Women and Their Work. Using the sun as her subject and collaborator in this solo show of new multimedia works, lens-based artist Krista Steinke explores the physical and psychological impact of our greatest energy source. Her use of video and experimental photographic processes helps to create a conversation about our dual relationship with the sun — essential for life on this planet but also a potential threat. 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday-Friday, noon to 6 p.m. Saturday through June 7. 1710 Lavaca St. 512-477-1064, womenandtheirwork.org.
Barks for Beers. For $30, you’ll be able to enjoy a free pint at 25 participating breweries throughout the month of May as part of the annual Barks for Beers fundraiser. Local therapy dog organization Divine Canines hosts the fundraiser every year to raise money for its mission of providing free therapy dog services to people who need them.

Multiple locations. divinecanines.org/barksforbeers/.
Salon Concerts’ Season Finale. Come hear chamber music as it was originally intended, in the intimate setting of a private home. You’ll have a chance to enjoy wine and food and mingle with the artists after the concert, the last one of the season. The program includes “Fantasy for Violin and Harp Op. 124” by Camille Saint-Saëns and “Cello Sonata” by György Ligeti. The location of the concert will be revealed to ticket holders only. There will also be a free lunchtime concert at University Presbyterian Church the next day. 7 p.m. April 30. $45. salonconcerts.org.
The “Stop Making Sense” Movie Party. Director Jonathan Demme captured the Talking Heads at their most powerful in this rousing concert film — considered the best by many. Led by David Byrne, the band has a contagious energy, and the excitement builds from song to song as the stage goes from being completely bare to being decked out in an intricate design that matches the music. The Alamo Drafthouse movie party will have an inflatable microphone and guitar for props. 7:30 p.m. April 30. $13. Alamo Ritz, 320 E. Sixth St. drafthouse.com.
Jack White at Austin360 Amphitheater. His latest album, “Boarding House Reach,” is an insane mix of thrash funk, rap rock and the gutsy garage rock we know and love. There are hits and misses, but it’s an interesting collection from an artist who’s constantly evolving. He debuted the album live with a series of intimate gigs in London, and the reports are promising, but if you go, prepare to stow your phone. White ejects fans who attempt to record him. 8 p.m. May 2. 9201 Circuit of the Americas Blvd. austin360amphitheater.com. — Deborah Sengupta Stith
“Wait, Wait … Don’t Tell Me!” at Bass Concert Hall. Now in its 20th season, “Wait Wait … Don’t Tell Me!” is National Public Radio’s Peabody Award-winning quiz show. Host Peter Sagal leads a rotating panel of comedians, humorists and journalists, listener contestants and celebrity guests through a comic review of the week’s news.

Which is the most NPR-y prize ever. 7:30 p.m. May 3. $39.50-$129.50. 2359 Robert Dedman Drive. texasperformingarts.org. —Brently Heilbron
