                          • Chris Tomlinson: Tomlinson Hill

                            Austin-based journalist and author Chris Tomlinson became a reporter in 1994, covering the end of Apartheid in South Africa and reporting from 50 countries and nine war zones including Rwanda, Somalia, Lebanon, Afghanistan and Iraq. Hailed as a “masterpiece of authentic American history,” his book Tomlinson Hill tells the stories of two families who trace their roots to a slave plantation that bears their name.

                            In Sophia Bolles’ mysterious new play Breather, protagonist Jennifer Owens evolves into something different and dangerous after losing everything—leaving it up to detectives and scientists to answer the question: What happened to Jennifer?

                            Rob Baird will be the first one to tell you that he hasn’t always been 100%, shall we say, forthright as a songwriter. Back in college (not too terribly long ago), he recorded an album that he has since “completely buried” — primarily, he says, because back then, “I just wasn’t writing about anything that really meant anything to me.” His next album, 2010’s Blue Eyed Angels (which he considers his proper debut), was a fair deal closer to his heart, but even then he was still an artist in search of himself. Songs like “Could Have Been My Baby,” “Blue Eyed Angels” and especially “Fade Away” all demonstrated that he was ultra-confident in the hooks department and talented enough to sound like he knew what he was doing.

                            Chris Tomlinson, both an award-winning journalist and author, has come out with a new book entitled, “Tomlinson Hill: The Remarkable Story of Two Families Who Share the Tomlinson Name-One White, One Black.” In this true and revealing story of two families who trace their roots to a  slave plantation that bears their name, Tomlinson explores the history of race and bigotry in Texas while also managing to disclose a great many untruths that are latent in the unsettling and complex story of America. Internationally recognized for his work as a fearless war correspondent, Tomlinson has used the reporting skills he honed as a highly respected reporter covering ethnic violence in Africa and the Middle East to fashion a perfect microcosm of America's own ethnic strife.

                            Literally meaning everyday life,"Cotidiano" is a dynamic look at the rapidly changing nature of the Latino experience in America.

                            Presented as “everyday life,” in the Spanish language, the exhibit entitled Latino/US Cotidiano represents subjects of Latino decent who embrace the theme of the exhibit and excel at their craft. Photographed by IberoAmerican Latino expert, Claudi Carreras, the exhibit tries to break outdated stereotypes, racial profiles, and past culture archetypes that no longer reflect a diverse and growing nation.

                            Reportedly one out of every six Americans is now of Hispanic origin, an impressive social transformation with enormous political, economic and cultural consequences. To better understand this culturally shifting phenomenon, SPAIN arts & culture  commissioned curator Claudi Carreras to gather the strongest photographic voices tackling issues of Latino identity. The resulting exhibition comprises works by established and emerging photographers such as Carlos Alvárez Montero, Sol Aramendi, Katrina Marcelle d’Au-tremont, Calé, Dulce Pinzón, Susana Raab, Stefan Ruiz, and Gihan Tubbeh.

                          • TPR Presents: The Science of Sound

                            With the Youth Orchestra of San Antonio providing a test sountrack, TPR’s free event invites guests to listen to the Tobin itself, hearing how the peformance space changes and magnifies the music being played. Acousticians, engineers and designers of the Tobin will break down the science of acoustics, from sound’s reverberation properties to how building shape can affect audio. Let’s just hope the TPR or Tobin folks will make good use of the opportunity to drop a Beastie Boys “Sound of Science” joke.

                            Though they live in Austin, OBN III’s members make their sonic home in the Motor City. Strutting like Raw Power-era Iggy, shredding like Fred “Sonic” Smith, OBN III’s play pure, fist-through-the-drywall, 40-to-the-face rock ‘n’ roll. With SA punkers Fruit Punch and White Christ.

                            Though the name would be perfect for a band of the heavy metal variety, Otis the Destroyer is anything but abrasive. The Austin-based blues group is indeed heavy on soul and hardcore for good, old-fashioned rock ‘n’ roll. Indie-poppers Sick/Sea’s sugary sweet ballads can cure just about any illness with soulful ethereal vocals and powerful harmonies. The term “math rock” is often confused as being for geeks, but SA’s Feuding Fathers prove otherwise. With complex drumming and elaborate guitar work, Feuding Fathers are the kings of mathematical cool.

                            Like the bulk of Austin Mahone’s Instagram account, this one’s a selfie. In a white tank top, hair coifed up real big, Mahone arranges his facial features in the manner of good-looking people well versed in taking pictures of themselves—lips lightly pursed, eyebrows up, posing without posing. “Running on the beach will be the death of me,” the caption says. It’s enough to garner 7,000 comments and 332,000 little hearts of approval from Mahone’s massive teen following, an audience seemingly dependent on an IV drip of Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Known as the Mahomies, Austin’s crew numbers well into the millions. Rising originally on Youtube, Mahone now holds some serious influence over the young wallets and fluttering stomachs of his adolescent audience. But as “Baby” did to Bieber, Mahone needs one smash single to boost him into the next level of superstardom. At 18-years-old, Mahone’s got the career infrastructure in place to jump to the .01 percent of Big Pop. More importantly, it appears he’s got the workhorse ethic to follow through at a vital crossroads period for teen idols, when the decisions of legal adulthood can send them into dens of vice and crumbling anxiety. At 18, on the road for his second headlining tour, Mahone’s already light-years away from his first bout of videos, singing from his bedroom in the doldrums of San Antonio.

                          • 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.
