  •  Fiesta Arts Fair
    Fiesta Arts Fair

    Along with King William Fair and Cornyation, the Southwest School of Art’s Fiesta Arts Fair tops the creative set’s short list of not-to-be-missed Fiesta events. An annual tradition since 1973, the two-day fair orbits around an outdoor marketplace filled with ceramics, jewelry, paintings, photography and wearable works from more than 100 national and regional artists (along with local favorites like Diana Kersey, Laura Quinoñes, Jennifer Ling Datchuk and Ryan Takaba). Much more than an art sale, FAF features appearances by Fiesta royalty, an Easter egg hunt on Sunday, tasty treats available for purchase (from La Gloria, The Fruteria, the Institute of Chili, Chocollazo and others) and live music on two stages. Highlights include “uke-centric” roots duo The Love Leighs (12:30 p.m. Sat), The Voice alum/CeeLo Green collaborator Nakia (4 p.m. Sat), Austin-based swamp rockers Chubby Knuckle Choir (1 p.m. Sun) and Latin fusion outfit Del Castillo (2:30 p.m. Sun). In addition to its Children’s Art Garden with face-painting and hands-on activities, FAF’s new Young Masters Project invites kids to create works inspired by Salvador Dalí, Claude Monet and Frida Kahlo and even dress up as the artist of their choice for a photo op.

  • The Return of Godzilla
    The Return of Godzilla 4/22 7:30PM
     

    That director Ishiro Honda had Katsumi Tezuka don that suffocating radioactive-reptile suit to stomp a scale-model of Tokyo in 1954’s Gojira rather than, say, Washington, D.C., might indicate something about Nihonjinron versus Toby Keith’s boot in yer ass, but we’ve come to praise Godzilla, not to write an ill-informed undergrad thesis about him/her. Subsequent films saw history’s most kickass nuclear-holocaust metaphor save mankind from such varied threats as Mechagodzilla, Godzillasaurus and Space Godzilla, but 1985’s The Return of Godzilla is a relapse into malevolence that’s never been released on DVD in the US. In anticipation of yet another reboot to be released next month, Cult Movie TV Danger Zone is screening Return (aka Godzilla 1985). Tickets, which must be purchased online, are $2—less than they would’ve cost 20 years ago. Plus it’s the Japanese version with English subtitles, so it counts as an artsy foreign film.

  • Mr. Composition CD Release

    Kevin Prince, aka Mr. Composition, is one of the hardest workers in SA music. The 23-year-old has released at least one LP or mixtape every year since he was 18 (much of this material is available at mrcomposition.bandcamp.com). Last year’s release, Running Red Lights Through Life, was one of my favorite local albums of 2013. It laid bare the rapper’s growth from a curious and earnest wordsmith to a master of his craft, gifted at melding personal narrative with commentary on universal concerns. Graffiti the Mind, out on May 2, sees the emcee truly coming into his own. Produced by San Anto native Ruler Why, Graffiti the Mind features beats that enhance the meaning of individual songs. Prince rhymes with entertaining, engaging lyrics, delivered with a unique flare in diverse styles. As Prince told the Current, he has long used rap as “a means of expressing [himself] and [his] experiences and frustrations.” As Prince has grown as an artist, he’s expanded his scope, concerned now with broader societal issues. Most impressively, these aren’t just raps; these are songs. Graffiti, anchored by the anthemic posse cut “Believe” and thought-provoking extended metaphor “Graffiti Lenz,” is a joy to bump and communicates an unstoppably positive message: Be patient, work your ass off, ask questions and give of yourself if you want to receive anything in return. Don’t miss the chance to see Graffiti done live at Fitzgerald’s on April 25

  • Worldwide Pest Control
  • Regal Cinemas Huebner Oaks Stadium 14 & RPX
  • 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.

  • 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.
