Texas Public Radio’s Cinema Tuesdays series wraps up with Steven Spielberg’s Oscar-winning sci-fi blockbuster following a young boy (played by San Antonio native Henry Thomas) who befriends an otherworldy being. Released in 1982, E.T. remained the highest-grossing film of all time until Spielberg’s Jurassic Park surpassed it in 1993.
With a nod to exquisite corpse, “You Are Here” highlights a collaboration between Tim Kerr and Brian Phillips. Kerr studied painting and photography at UT–Austin and played a key role in Texas’ early punk scene as a founding member of Big Boys and other bands. Louisiana native Phillips illustrates his mantra “One man’s junk pile is another man’s art supplies” with puzzle-like constructions built from reclaimed wood. A tribute to inspiring icons, the duo’s joint project involved Kerr painting portraits of Rosa Parks, Evel Knievel and many more on surfaces pieced together by Phillips.
There seem to be two kinds of comedy fans in 2014: those to whom a Chelsea Lately credit is a come-on and those to whom it’s a warning flag. In the case of Josh Wolf, this binary proves as dumb as most. Though at 40-plus he looks every bit the Mannish Boy Frat Daddy, and his style—confidently delivered observations about sex and other bodily functions (what before the ’90s alt/club split was commonly known as “comedy”)—is definitely panel-ready, his actual life experiences as a single dad give his material and outlook a broader appeal than any niche he might appear to fit.

Founded in 1978, Primarily Primates is a 78-acre refuge housing and rehabilitating upwards of 400 animals, including apes and monkeys retired from circuses and biomedical research institutions, chimpanzees used in space training and Oliver—an upright-walking chimp once paraded on TV shows as a “humanzee.” Managed by the nonprofit Friends of Animals since 2007, Primarily Primates recently received a San Antonio Area Foundation grant to build a massive natural habitat for capuchin monkeys but also accepts (even less-than-perfect) produce donations to help feed its population, which also encompasses birds and lemurs. On Saturday, Green once again steps up to support the sanctuary by hosting A Hoedown for Primates, a fundraiser that treats guests to a “cruelty-free” barbecue buffet, live bluegrass music by Tennessee Valley Authority and a silent auction featuring spa packages and abstract paintings (pictured) created by an artistically inclined chimp named Buck.
