Brownout Presents Brown Sabbath at Waterloo Records. One of the smartest concept projects to come out of Austin in years, Afro-Latin psych-funk band Brownout struck gold with its idea to superimpose its style upon the repertoire of metal legends Black Sabbath. Bay Area indie Ubiquity Records dug it enough to put out a full album that grew from the incendiary Brown Sabbath gigs the band has played in recent months. The record comes out Tuesday and a full-on celebration is set for Empire on June 27, but catch a preview at what’s likely to be one of the liveliest in-store performances of the year. Free. 5 p.m. 600-A N. Lamar Blvd. waterloorecords.com.

Also: If the Waterloo gig leaves you bloodthirsty for more metal mayhem, just head on over to the Mohawk, which features a full-on feast with DevilDriver, Whitechapel, Carnifex, Revocation, Rivers of Nihland Fit for an Autopsy. … It’s country night at Hole in the Wall as the 40th-anniversary soiree continues with Mike & the Moonpies, the Carper Family, Roger Wallace and Leo Rondeau. … Other fine country options include Dale Watson, who’s back in his Monday saddle at the Continental Club, and Jim Stringer & His AM Band at the White Horse. … A busy night at Sahara Lounge includes Nashville bandBird Dog, Daniel Thomas Phipps & the Kinfolk, Seela, Darren Hoff & the Hard Times and Kathryn Legendre.
