  • Some kids just love poop. But where analysts see psychosis, author Sylvia Branzei sees opportunity. Her best-selling book series Grossology explains the biology of diarrhea, boogers and blood to make science interesting to young, warped minds. From now until November 3, the Witte will host interactive exhibits inspired by Branzei’s books, along with a lot of disgusting noises and high-pitched giggles not often heard in fancy-pants museums. Fogeys will harrumph, but it might lead to a cancer cure.

  • Tony Bennett
    Tony Bennett 7/23 8:00PM
     

    If Cheek to Cheek, Tony Bennett’s upcoming album of duets with Lady Gaga sounds crazy to you, realize your grandparents were equally perplexed in the late 1950s when the already famous Bennett started recording with jazz legends Art Blakey and Count Basie. From his first chart topper (“Because of You,” 1951) to his most recent offering (2011’s Duets II, released on his 85th birthday), Bennett—a WWII vet who helped liberate a concentration camp, marched for civil rights with MLK, and has a painting displayed in the Smithsonian—has been a fill-in for Perry Como and a mentor on American Idol, Johnny Carson’s first musical guest and Amy Winehouse’s last collaborator, all without significantly altering his style or song selection. God forbid he ever actually try to reinvent himself, because America just doesn’t make them like that anymore.

  • This Is Spinal Tap
    This Is Spinal Tap 7/23 7:15PM
     

    First in Christopher Guest’s acclaimed list of ensemble cast “improvisational” comedies (followed by Waiting for Guffman, Best in Show, A Mighty Wind, and For Your Consideration), the 1984 mockumentary This Is Spinal Tap chronicles a fictional British heavy metal band touring America tour in support of a comeback album titled Smell the Glove. Through concert footage and interviews with filmmaker Marty Di Bergi (Rob Reiner), the band’s dim present and bizarre past comes to light complete with anecdotes about former drummers who died by spontaneous combustion, a bizarre gardening accident and choking to death on the vomit of person(s) unknown.

  • Rey Lopez Birthday Bash
    Rey Lopez Birthday Bash 7/23 10:30PM
     

    Hyped as “the biggest show of the year,” promoter Rey Lopez’s birthday extravaganza lures eight RuPaul’s Drag Race alums to the Heat for an over-the-top night of high camp and seasoned lip-synching. Emceed by 2014 Best of San Antonio winner Tencha La Jefa, the gender-bending bash features performances by Season 2 fan favorite Raven (a self-described “bitter bitch” who styles herself as a “mysterious, dark, ice queen”); Laotian queen Jujubee (who enjoys “long walks on the beach, big dicks and fried chicken”); costume designer and insult comic Bianca Del Rio (the series’ first ever Hispanic winner, pictured); “overwhelmingly disliked” showgirl Phi Phi O’Hara (who stirred up heaps of controversy on Season 4); Puerto Rican performer Yara Sofia (who took home the title of Miss Congeniality on Season 3); fellow Boricua Jessica Wild (a choreographer and recording artist who’s collaborated with Mexican superstar Gloria Trevi); SoCal drag fixture Detox Icunt (a member of the band Tranzkuntinental who’s made appearances in videos for Rihanna and Ke$ha); and Miss Gay America 2010 Alyssa Edwards (an accomplished “nailographer” and drag mother of fellow Texan Shangela Laquifa Wadley).

  • Back in 2005, environmentalist, author and 350.org founder Bill McKibben cited the considerable political effect art has had on the AIDS crisis and asked, “Where are the books, poems, plays [and] goddamn operas [about climate change]?” Four years later, McKibben admitted that ever since he’d published his “pleading little essay” that “deep and moving images and sounds and words have been flooding out into the world.” In keeping with this still-developing trend, Bihl Haus Arts has rallied more than 50 local artists, writers, performers and environmental experts to contribute to the exhibition “HOT!” and its related programming. Curated by artist/designer Raul Castellanos and poet/activist Mobi Warren, the multi-disciplinary group show comprises works by 25 visual artists and 14 poets. On view through September 13, “HOT!” opens Friday with a reception featuring poolside performances by I Ching Gatos, Blind Alley and Ila Minori and takes shape in August with a poetry reading, an artistic recycling workshop with Castellanos, a water ceremony led by an Apache medicine woman, a panel discussion and a screening of the film Come Hell or High Water: The Battle for Turkey Creek.

  • El Chuacabra de San Antonio

    Beyond the spreading success of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series, Run or Dye and the “awesomely terrifying obstacle course” known as the Zombie Run, themed runs are venturing into an ironic territory filled with fake mustaches, booze, corndogs and Twinkies. Run in Texas’ “San Antonio original” is admittedly “not a trail run for beginners” as it courses through rocky, wooded terrain in the pitch dark. (A flashlight or headlamp is required.) Those willing to brave bruises, sprains and goat-sucking predators get rewarded with brews and barbecue at the post-race party.
