  • OBN III
    OBN III's

    Though they live in Austin, OBN III’s members make their sonic home in the Motor City. Strutting like Raw Power-era Iggy, shredding like Fred “Sonic” Smith, OBN III’s play pure, fist-through-the-drywall, 40-to-the-face rock ‘n’ roll. With SA punkers Fruit Punch and White Christ.

  • Islamic Miniature Painting & French Pastry
    Islamic Miniature Painting & French Pastry

    With a nod to the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver and its lecture series Mixed Taste, the McNay launched its own Mash-Up Series in 2012 and continues it this week with an interactive experience inviting participants to “make the mash-up connection” between professor of Islamic art Stephennie Mulder and pastry chefs Anne Ng and Jeremy Madrell.

  • “Latino/U.S. Cotidiano”
    “Latino/U.S. Cotidiano”

    Reportedly one out of every six Americans is now of Hispanic origin, an impressive social transformation with enormous political, economic and cultural consequences. To better understand this culturally shifting phenomenon, SPAIN arts & culture  commissioned curator Claudi Carreras to gather the strongest photographic voices tackling issues of Latino identity. The resulting exhibition comprises works by established and emerging photographers such as Carlos Alvárez Montero, Sol Aramendi, Katrina Marcelle d’Au-tremont, Calé, Dulce Pinzón, Susana Raab, Stefan Ruiz, and Gihan Tubbeh.

  • Chris Tomlinson: Tomlinson Hill

    Austin-based journalist and author Chris Tomlinson became a reporter in 1994, covering the end of Apartheid in South Africa and reporting from 50 countries and nine war zones including Rwanda, Somalia, Lebanon, Afghanistan and Iraq. Hailed as a “masterpiece of authentic American history,” his book Tomlinson Hill tells the stories of two families who trace their roots to a slave plantation that bears their name.

  • TPR Presents: The Science of Sound

    With the Youth Orchestra of San Antonio providing a test sountrack, TPR’s free event invites guests to listen to the Tobin itself, hearing how the peformance space changes and magnifies the music being played. Acousticians, engineers and designers of the Tobin will break down the science of acoustics, from sound’s reverberation properties to how building shape can affect audio. Let’s just hope the TPR or Tobin folks will make good use of the opportunity to drop a Beastie Boys “Sound of Science” joke.

  • Otis the Destroyer, Sick/Sea, Feuding Fathers

    Though the name would be perfect for a band of the heavy metal variety, Otis the Destroyer is anything but abrasive. The Austin-based blues group is indeed heavy on soul and hardcore for good, old-fashioned rock ‘n’ roll. Indie-poppers Sick/Sea’s sugary sweet ballads can cure just about any illness with soulful ethereal vocals and powerful harmonies. The term “math rock” is often confused as being for geeks, but SA’s Feuding Fathers prove otherwise. With complex drumming and elaborate guitar work, Feuding Fathers are the kings of mathematical cool.

    Matisyahu 10/31 8:00PM
     

    Akeda, the fifth studio album from Grammy-nominated musician, Matisyahu is out today on Elm City Music. Matisyahu declares, “Akeda is the kind of album an artist makes when there is no other creative choice but to turn oneself inside-out, to scrape the insides and reveal everything raw.” Matisyahu first made a name for himself with his album Live at Stubbs, quickly followed by Youth. Both albums achieved Gold status, and Youth was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album. 2009¹s Light reached #1 on the Reggae Album chart, and stayed in the top spot for 34 weeks. Matisyahu’s 4th studio album, Spark Seeker, also debuted at #1 on the Reggae chart.  Matisyahu's new album AKEDA was released on June 3rd.

  • Worldwide Pest Control
  • The Korova

    A gritty new addition to SA’s evolving River Walk scene, the former Ruta Maya is back from the dead with a hardcore case of the punks. Other than a comfy white couch here and there, there are no coffeehouse remnants. High-octane live music attracts a mixed alternative crowd on certain nights, but it was a DJ spinning vintage New Order that made us want to know more. For a true taste of the SA underground, hang downstairs, where we were (accidentally) stomped on by a boot-clad mosher.

  • Regal Cinemas Huebner Oaks Stadium 14 & RPX
  • 502 Bar

    Live music venue with possibly the best acoustics in town and an impressive beer menu and nightly drink specials. Best use: Anytime live music is onstage; typically no cover during the week, while weekend covers stay under $10.

  • The Cove

    Justly famous for its fish tacos, the Cove is also a good location for locavores and vegetarians thanks to owner Lisa Asvestas’s commitment to sustainable food sources (she can tell you where to find raw milk, too). Beer and wine tastings, plus live music and the adjacent laundromat make it a one-stop lifestyle shop without the Austin attitude.
