New York-based writer, artist, actor, and filmmaker Peter Josyph left audiences spellbound when he last performed at the Wittliff Collections in 2010 as the keynote speaker for the Cormac McCarthy Society. Since then, the Wittliff published Josyph's book Cormac McCarthys House: Reading McCarthy Without Walls in its literary series with the University of Texas Press. To celebrate his book and the Wittliff's fall archives exhibition, "Cormac McCarthy: Unveiling a Literary Legend," Josyph returns to dazzle and inform audiences seeking to understand the spirit of Pulitzer Prize winner Cormac McCarthy. Josyph's books will be for sale at the event courtesy of the University Bookstore, and he will sign books after the program.

Curated by Deborah Keller-Rihn and Melanie Rush Davis, “Mixing It Up” is a one-stop crash-course in some of San Antonio’s most innovative artists, who experiment in this show with mixed media and photographic images. Given the crazy roster of artists involved, which includes Katie Pell, Juan Miguel Ramos, Kemp Davis, Trish Simonite, Ramin Samandari, Mario Garza, Wesley Harvey, Carra Garza and the curators themselves, this could be anything. Worst-case scenario: The viewer learns a little something about a whole lot of artists at once.
Daniela Riojas explores ideas of the figure in art, Latin American rituals, letting go of the past, and Jungian archetypes in “A Collection of Work,” a Fotoseptiembre exhibition comprising several bodies of material, including Being and Becoming, Dysplacia, Meiosis, Blood History and Portrait of a Woman Who Will Lose Her Hair in Two Weeks. Riojas’ self-portrait series Being and Becoming takes on a different methodology, that of the portrayal of her various archetypal selves. These acts of discovery scrutinize a ritualistic component as the work discusses the journey of storm and rapture through the gilding commodification of the female body and domestic concepts. These scenes address Latin American and Mesoamerican rituals of eating gold and the altered state of rapture within a storm. Providing a contrast are more somber self-portraits of Riojas covered in flower and egg yolks—possibly symbolizing domesticity and child bearing. At its heart, Being and Becoming is about role identification through questioning the inherent value of the female form.

This cult favorite stars Molly Ringwald as a working-class high school girl who falls for one of the wealthy boys at her high school. Each of their cliques opposes their budding romance, and the clash culminates at prom.
Daedelus is an anachronistic dude. With the name of a mythic Bronze Age Greek architect, the sideburns of a 19th-century president and the aesthetic sense of a retrospective futurist, the LA producer isn’t held down to a place in time like the rest of us. Take his recent soundtracking work for the excellent side-scroller Nidhogg, touching on the driving rhythms and ascending, 8-bit lines of classic SNES, while introducing Aphex Twin beats and occult synths to the mix. For Daedelus, trained at the University of Southern California in jazz double bass, this clattering of influence is all in a day’s work, blending ’90s house pop with PBR&B or tasteful EDM with outsider production. With Empireal Formula, Ernest Gonzales and Ohh Yeah.
Austin’s Alan Palomo, who records and performs as Neon Indian, enjoyed meteoric success leading up to and following the 2009 release of his groovetastic electronic album Psychic Chasms. 2011’s Era Extraña picked right up where that album left off and established him not just as a practitioner of the fleeting micro-genre chillwave, but as an inventive songwriter and composer in general. For this DJ show, Palomo, who at one point had actually adopted a full band, is back to his turntable roots, hooking Thursday revelers up with danceable jams from across genres and, hopefully, plenty of his own music.
This Thursday! Daedalus and Neon Indian playing the same night in SA! Catch Daedalus's free show with The Empireal Formula and Ernest Gonzales from 7-10 p.m., then head straight over to Brass Monkey for Neon Indian.

Of the current generation of post-Disney super starlets, Demi Lovato has stayed closest to the squeaky image of the Mickey Mouse ears. It appears that the 180-degree image change of Spring Breakers or twerk-appropriation isn’t necessary for the 22-year-old singer to lead a procession of multi-platinum bubblegum hits. In fact, Lovato doubled-down on her Disney investment last year, covering Idina Menzel’s Oscar-winning “Let It Go” from Frozen, ear-worming her voice into the next generation of Disney audiences. And with her booming set of mezzo-soprano pipes, Lovato isn’t letting go anytime soon.
