Nerd Nite 120: The History Of. Are you a history buff? A wealth of useful (or useless) knowledge? Do you think a documentary on the history of everyday items and attractions sounds exciting? Well, don’t miss this Nerd Nite. Three speakers, including Wendy Mitchell and Ty Harvey, give you their passionate takes on the history of roller coasters, vermouth and toilet paper (not necessarily in that order). 8 to 11 p.m. Nov. 13. Free. The North Door, 502 Brushy St. facebook.com/events/2840435486187397
Metalachi at Antone’s. Hailing from Hollywood via Juarez, Mexico, the five-piece ensemble infuses your favorite hair metal power ballads with the lovesick warble of traditional mariachi tunes. With a keen sense of humor and over-the-top theatrics, the crew says they aim to land their shows somewhere between the worlds of Spinal Tap and Cheech & Chong. If you’ve been yearning for mournful violin in your “Bohemian Rhapsody” or a trumpet fanfare to welcome you to the jungle, this is your ticket. 9 p.m. Nov. 13-14. $18-$20. 305 E. Fifth St. antonesnightclub.com — Deborah Sengupta Stith
Kids in a New Groove’s Music Matters Luncheon.

The luncheon will feature a message from keynote speaker, Myra Gleason, a musician and foster care advocate. She aims to help others realize the traumas and victories that tie us all together. 11 a.m. Nov. 13. Free; donations welcome. Fairmont Austin, 101 Red River St. kidsinanewgroove.org/2018-music-matters-luncheon
The Hidden Homeless in Austin: Children and Families. As the number of people experiencing homelessness in Austin continues to rise and as city leaders, citizens, and community organizations work toward finding solutions, several voices are missing in the narrative — those who are homeless. The LBJ Future Forum hosts a discussion with key leaders exploring what needs to be done. After the conversation, you can linger to connect over light bites and beverages. Register to attend. 6 p.m. doors Nov. 13. Free. LBJ Library & Museum, 2313 Red River St. facebook.com/events/409607846641108
“Planes, Trains & Automobiles” Beer Dinner with Odell Brewing. Funnily enough, as many Christmas-related films as there are, Hollywood has given us far fewer Thanksgiving epics. Namely, this John Candy and Steve Martin comedy about the insanity of traveling home for the holidays. The Alamo Drafthouse has crafted a three-course beer dinner to go along with the ride, with brews such as the Barreled Treasure Imperial Stout. 7 p.m. Nov. 13. $45.41. Alamo Mueller, 1911 Aldrich St., Suite 120. drafthouse.com
