The Happen-Ins at Waterloo Records. It’s taken five years to follow up their self-titled debut, but this 11-song collection further testifies to the Happen-Ins’ penchant for soulful, Stonesy rock ’n’ roll. When they hit their stride on the instantly memorable groove of “Pillow Talk,” they’re one of Austin’s most likable and promising bands. They celebrate the vinyl release of their new album “Glamour Shots” with this in-store performance. Free. 5 p.m. 600-A N. Lamar Blvd. waterloorecords.com. — P.B.
