  • Tanyalee Davis
    Tanyalee Davis 8/21 8:30PM
     

    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.

  • If...
    If... 8/21 7:00PM
     

    Lindsay Anderson's bizarre 1968 classic If... stars Malcom MacDowell as a radical youth who bristles against all forces of authority in a rigid boarding school. First in a trilogy of films (followed by O Lucky Man! in 1973 and Britannia Hospital in 1982), the darkly humorous and at times surreal film won the  Palme d'Or at the 1969 Cannes Film Festival and has been hailed as “a landmark of British countercultural cinema.”

  • 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, Massiver, Slow Pulse, Delenda

    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.
