                            One doesn’t usually associate Americana singer-songwriters with being gear nerds, but Austin Forrest can spar with the gnarliest of roadies. Using a looping pedal, Forrest lays down the rhythm section on the bongo and cajón, the song’s bones on the rhythm guitar, then shreds lead on top. Forrest loops three part harmonies to complement his tunes, challenging the role of the barside/restaurant patio crooner.

This Shakespeare residency is not supported by any state funds, but rather by gifts from friends like you and ticket revenues. For many students the Shakespeare performance is their first experience with professional theater. Additionally, it is almost always their only chance to interact with and learn from acclaimed Shakespearean actors from world-renowned companies.

                            On Wednesday, October 1, Teach For America–San Antonio teachers will host a community movie night and discussion of the documentary The Dream is Now.  Directed by Academy Award-winner Davis Guggenheim, the film tells the stories of undocumented youth and their families and illuminates the challenges they face under current immigration policy.  Following the event, a member of the San Antonio Immigrant Youth Movement (SAIYM) will share his story of navigating higher education as an undocumented immigrant.  Attendees will also have the opportunity to learn about registering to vote, finding your state and federal representative, and Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and immigration status.

                          • Paul McCartney vs. Ringo Starr

                            The age old schoolyard question: “Who’d be the last Liverpudlian standing in a no-holds-barred Beatle battle royal?” (Note: As a child of the ‘80s, I just assume the Beatles were the early ‘60s equivalent of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles). Unfortunately, the passage of time has already eliminated half the bracket, but this month San Antonio hosts both surviving Beatles, and you get the rare chance to cast your vote in the way that really matters—with your pocket book. Or, rather, with the bulk of your bank account and possibly part of your cashed-in 401K. Tickets to McCartney (whose latest release New proves he’s still one of our greatest living songwriters) cost more than my first car before they sold out. As of this writing ticket resale site StubHub had less than 60 seats available at prices ranging from $992 to $3,326. Diehard Macca fans have already sold their kidneys and/or children and/or children’s kidneys. To see Starr (whose latest, Ringo 2012, proves he can still keep the hell out of some 4/4 time and nail that one note he sings), however, you might just have to pawn a nice TV. Those tickets are also sold out, but you might get one from StubHub for as (relatively) low as $93. Say what you want about Ringo, he’s always known his place.

                            Q Kitchen | Bar takes the concept of the neighborhood get together and turns up the heat with the second annual Urban Backyard BBQ. Guests will enjoy complimentary samples of Q Kitchen | Bars new menu items including the popular and delicious Texas Style Poutine. These house-made french fries are topped with pulled pork, country gravy and local cheddar cheese curds. Other featured items include: the Queso Fundido, which consists of smoked brisket, black beans, creamy cheddar and fresh tortilla strips; the hearty Smoked Steak Sandwich featuring shaved, house smoked strip loin piled high and topped with white cheddar, mushrooms, caramelized onions, and roasted garlic aioli; Finally, crowd pleasing Mini Brisket Tacos will be served with pico de gallo, queso fresco, a lime wedge, salso rojo and chipotle cream. No BBQ is complete without sips, and you can quench the flames with one of the many libations that Q Kitchen | Bar will have on hand. Featured beverage vendors include Karbach Brewing, Cinco Vodka, TX Blended Whiskey, Becker Vineyards, and the 1972 Ridgemont Reserve Bourbon blended specifically for Q Bar. Fall is the perfect time to fire up the BBQ grill, but there's more to grilling than just food and fun. Fire is nothing to play with and it is imperative that safety precautions are taken to avoid injury. The chef and staff at Q Kitchen | Bar feel strongly about grilling safety, and that is why the event (which kicks off National Fire Prevention Month) will benefit the Texas Burn Survivor Society. Hyatt Regency and Q Kitchen | Bar are ongoing supporters of this organization that helps mentor burn patients at Brooks Army Medical Center's burn unit, as they undergo treatment and rehabilitation in an effort to transition back to living fulfilling lives. As part of their commitment, Q Kitchen | Bar will hold a raffle at the event and donate proceeds from ticket sales to the Texas Burn Survivor Society. Prizes include a bottle of Q's 1972 Ridgemont Reserve Bourbon, lunch for four at the Pasta Buffet, tickets to a beer or bourbon dinner and a one night stay at the hotel, complete with breakfast. In addition, Q Kitchen | Bar will also donate 5% of proceeds from all dinners throughout the month of October to the Texas Burn Survivor Society. City: San Antonio,

                            Founded by Nicholas Mason in 1998, the Manhattan Short Film Festival has grown from a humble presentation screened on the side of a truck to a far-reaching global affair encompassing upwards of 250 cinemas spread across six continents. With alums who have gone on to earn Oscar nods, Manhattan Short is now billed as a “breeding ground for the next big thing in film.” An interactive draw for opinionated cinephiles, the top awards (Best Film and Best Actor) are determined by audience votes collected at screenings around the world. Narrowed down from 589 entries representing 47 countries and ranging in length from eight to 17 minutes, the fest’s 17th annual program comprises Ben Brand’s 97% (Netherlands), Alix Lambert and Sam Chou’s Crime: The Animated Series (U.S.), Elena Fuller’s On the Bridge (UK), James Croke’s Shift (Australia), Andreas Thaulow’s The Fall (Norway), Thierry Lorenzi’s On/Off (France), Josh Soskin’s La Carnada (Mexico), Bexie Bush’s Mend and Make Do (UK), Monn Molson’s The Bravest, The Boldest (U.S.) and Erik Schmitt’s Rhino Full Throttle (Germany).

                            Roadkill Ghost Choir’s website describes their music as “Tom Petty by way of Radiohead and Cormac McCarthy” and—for their somber, folky, alternative, Southern Gothic flair—that bloated description isn’t too far off. The Florida quintet’s debut LP, In Tongues, was released on August 19 and stands as a testament to the band’s sonic vision. Pronounced and rolling percussion, steel guitar, spacey noise and the singularly pretty, wiry voice of lead singer/songwriter Andrew Shepard, along with his dark and symbolically suggestive lyrics, make Roadkill Ghost Choir a band to be excited about.

                            While still studying at the National College of Arts in Lahore, Pakistani-born Shahzia Sikander won the Haji Sharif award for The Scroll (1989-90), a five-foot work that infused personal narratives and modern concepts into the tradition-steeped realm of Indo-Persian miniature painting. While her muralesque thesis and following works helped spark a new wave of artists reclaiming and remixing a rigid cultural tradition, Sikander continually surprises with projects that run the gamut from lifelike drawings to text-based compositions and videos fusing abstract and figurative elements. Working with animation since her 2001 Artpace residency, Sikander drew inspiration from “the history of maritime trade and colonial occupation in the Strait of Hormuz” for her three-channel video Parallax. Layering drawing, painting, poetry, topographical maps, “singing spheres” and a soundtrack crafted by Chinese composer/performance artist Du Yun, Parallax makes its national debut at the Linda Pace Foundation’s SPACE gallery.  While still studying at the National College of Arts in Lahore, Pakistani-born Shahzia Sikander won the Haji Sharif award for The Scroll (1989-90), a five-foot work that infused personal narratives and modern concepts into the tradition-steeped realm of Indo-Persian miniature painting.

                            Westside nonprofit San Anto Cultural Arts serves up huevos rancheros with a side of rasquache at this 17th annual fundraiser. This year’s theme (Rasquachismo) celebrates art that creates the most meaning from basic materials; fitting for an organization that uses art as a tool for community empowerment. The kid-friendly day features an exhibit and silent art auction, live music from Henry Zimmerle, huevos rancheros from True Flavors and the crowning of 2014 King Huevo David Gonzales and Queen Huevo Antonia Castañeda based on their impact on “the cultural and artistic vibrancy of our community.”
