Monday Night Bluegrass at Radio Coffee & Beer. One of south Austin’s newest hip hangouts, which is often crowded both indoors and out, has been creating a stir in recent months with its weekly show spotlighting bluegrass in a town that’s not especially known for the genre. The venue’s website listing promises “world class string players assembling in random rotation to play old bluegrass standards — none of those newfangled modern originals.” If that’s old-school enough for you, this is probably a good time. Free. 8 p.m. 4204 Manchaca Road. radiocoffeeandbeer.com.

Also: Portland rockers Mope Grooves are at Hotel Vegas. … Blues-rocker Kalu James plays the late slot in the Continental Gallery, following Elias Haslanger and James Polk’s regular Church on Monday set.
