‘American Utopia’

As soon as David Byrne and his barefooted band kick into “Slippery People,” you’ll wonder why you skipped this tour when it stopped by Minneapolis two years ago. It’s a worthy follow-up to “Stop Making Sense,” with Byrne revisiting Talking Heads classics and deep cuts from his solo career with quirky enthusiasm. Spike Lee directed this once-in-a-lifetime experience. 7 p.m. Sat., HBO

‘What the Constitution Means to Me’

What a week for Broadway on TV. In addition to “Utopia,” theater lovers get this heart-stirring adaptation of Heidi Schreck’s Tony-nominated play that proves “Hamilton” isn’t the only way to spice up an American history lesson. When Schreck starts debating a teenager on whether the Constitution should be abolished, you may think you’ve accidentally stumbled onto C-Span. By their closing arguments, you’ll be convinced the debate team has the coolest kids in school. Amazon Prime

‘Pleased to Meet Me’ chat

Fans of the Replacements can get serious insight into the madcap Minneapolis rockers’ most focused album with this archived group roundtable timed to last week’s release of the “Pleased to Meet Me” expanded box set. Engineer Jim Lancaster and late producer Jim Dickinson’s son Luther emphasize the effect Memphis had on the band, and the impact the band had on them; like Tommy Stinson playing “Nightclub Jitters” on a stand-up bass originally owned by “Smokey & the Bandit’s” Jerry Reed, and the elder Dickinson humorously wearing flannel to fit in. facebook.com/thereplacements

Twin Cities Jewish Film Fest

The festival goes virtual this year, and it’s free.

The movie charts Martel’s efforts to document the life of his nonagenarian mother while dementia is gradually robbing her of the details. Oct. 15-Nov. 1, sabesjcc.org

Don’t fret if you don’t have the Oculus headset because the event will be livestreamed on YouTube with a different interactive element. 9 p.m. Mon., YouTube


Brian Stelter doesn’t have many kind words for Fox News pundits in this vicious takedown of the cable network. News junkies will already know some of the juicy anecdotes and the book may have had more of an impact if the former New York Times reporter had broadened his critical eye to look at MSNBC and his current employer, CNN. But if you’ve never truly understood the relationship between Sean Hannity and President Donald Trump, this breezy read is an eye opener. Simon & Schuster
