In celebration of National Poetry Month, Central Library screens Rob Epstein’s 2010 film starring James Franco as gay Beat-era poet Allen Ginsberg.
Recorded live at London’s famed O2 Arena, BAFTA-winning director Hamish Hamilton’s concert film Back to Front offers fans a rare, behind-the-scenes look at Peter Gabriel in celebration of the 25th anniversary of his seminal album So.
Twenty-three years after the release of its critically and commercially acclaimed debut, and with a new album rumored to be on the way this year, seminal West Coast gangsta rap tribe Cypress Hill is swinging by Saytown just in time for Fiesta. The show, a part of the eighth annual Siesta Fest, will no doubt have a set list that reads like a greatest hits compilation, with (hopefully) a taste of what’s to come as the Chicano rap pioneers prepare to unleash their first album since 2012’s disappointing dubstep mess Cypress X Rusko. Super fan-friendly prices and a rare chance to see one of golden-era hip-hop’s most successful and influential acts? If you call yourself a hip-hop head, you’d be insane (most likely in the membrane) to miss this one.
Billed as the “raunchiest, cheapest event of Fiesta,” Cornyation spoofs current events, local politics and pop culture and this year welcomes guests into The Court of Festive Fêtes and Frivolous Faux Pas, to be ruled by King and Queen Anchovy Steve and Jody Newman. “Not just a bunch of queens,” Fiesta Cornyation is a permanently committed nonprofit dedicated to enriching the lives of San Antonians with HIV or affected by HIV. To date, the organization has donated more than $1.5 million to local charities, including SAAF (San Antonio AIDS Foundation), Beat AIDS (Black Effort Against the Threat of AIDS) and HAC (Help, Action, Care).
“We Just Live in It” is the inevitable subtitle of William Shatner’s one-man show, which debuted on Broadway in 2012, and of all the solipsists to stake that claim, the one true Captain Kirk probably has the most shut-ins calling him god. If that’s you, dust off the doughnut pillow to watch and enjoy the filmed version, screened for a single night in theaters, regardless of how many times you saw it live on tour. Cheek-licking fans of Shatner’s “Rocket Man,” will hoot at the 83-year-old fitted with a flesh-tone wireless mic for the stereotypical black-box solo-show, but fans of both Shatner and good storytelling hoping for the sort of insight evident on Has Been (his pretty great collaboration with Ben Folds) might take encouragement from this: We haven’t seen Shatner’s World, but we did see Shatner last year, outside a Laurie Anderson show.
