  • Tanyalee Davis
    Tanyalee Davis

    If you grow tired of getting all your chuckles from people who look, think and act just like you and your group of friends, Tanyalee Davis might have the laughs you’re looking for. Standing 3-foot-6, Davis’ perspective is necessarily different from most, but the common threads of human experience and her gifts as a storyteller make her endlessly relatable, and the joy in her enormously confident, sex-positive act is infectious and life-affirming. Promoting empathy through dirty jokes? There oughta be a prize for that.

  • Miko Peled
    Miko Peled

    Miko Peled's father was a general in the Israeli Defense Forces during the Six-Day War in 1967. In his book, The Generals Son, Journey of an Israeli in Palestine, Miko tells why he found himself disagreeing more with Israel's policy towards Palestinians. He is widely regarded as an well informed and engaging speaker.

  • Bidder 70
    Bidder 70

    An inspiring documentary of climate activist Tim DeChristopher, Bidder 70 screens Wednesday in association with Bihl Haus Arts’ multi-disciplinary exhibit “HOT!” DeChristopher’s story demonstrates his personal commitment to climate justice through civil disobedience.

  • Lone Star Live Summer Concert Series

    Picture a 10-gallon hat filled with Lone Star beer. Sound good? Sounds like you’re an ideal crowd member for August’s installment of Lone Star Live, switching from the free series’ indie and punk inclinations toward country. On his new release Our Side of the Fence, Curtis Grimes (pictured) takes the vocal chops he honed on Season 1 of The Voice and puts them to twangy good use. With his band the Swindles, Mitch Webb settles in the cozy middle point between Doug Sahm and Bob Dylan. With the Only Hipsters, Garrett T. Capps plays a violent, fuzzed-out form of blues rock ‘n’ roll.

  •  Oscuridad
    Oscuridad 8/22 8:00PM
     

    Pushing boundaries for 29 years, Jump-Start Performance Co. is an SA institution rooted in experimentation and collaboration. A former fixture in the Blue Star Arts Complex, the performance art troupe unveils a mysterious new production this week in its new Beacon Hill space. Directed by Marisela Barrera and developed through “a rehearsal process of performance experiments, improvisation and story-sharing,” Oscuridad plays out during the final hours of a doomed cantina frequented by shadowy characters La Lechuza, Fantasma, El Señor, the Handless Maid and La Muerte.

  • Hooked Rugs with Massiver
    Hooked Rugs with Massiver 8/22 8:00PM
     

    It is challenging, to say the least, to make electronic music with organic sensibilities—with soul. All four bands on this stacked bill, however, manage to pull this off with creative aplomb to spare. At the top of the bill, Houston’s Hooked Rugs crafts delightfully fuzzy synth jams that incorporate industrial sounds and chant-like vocals, creating a mesmerizing and mystical experience. The superb gallery show also features the eclectic yet minimalistic sounds of ATX’s Slow Pulse and SA’s Massiver (pictured) and Delenda, who create, respectively, droning synth miasmas and über-chill new-age ditties.

  • "The Silent World" 8/23 5:00PM
     

    Not unlike Contemporary Art Month in March, Fotoseptiembre often arrives early and stays late. Typically brimming with everything from traditional landscapes and still lifes to elaborately staged scenarios and racy pictorials, the South Texas-based festival of photography opens its 2014 chapter on a colorful yet meditative note by pairing scuba-diving lensmen Robert Michaelson and Jim Sparkman in the duo show “The Silent World.” Promising a visual journey to “the depths of the ocean,” the exhibition gets up close and personal with a number of aquatic beasties including a baby turtle, a “peacock flounder,” an anemone and a sci-fi-worthy marine mollusk called a nudibranch.

popular places

  • 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.
