At 80 years old, The Thin Man is a lot like my Nana: elegant, witty and very appreciative of a good martini. And like Nana, The Thin Man is delightful to this day. Most of this is due to the unparalleled chemistry between William Powell and Myrna Loy, who play Nick and Nora Charles; he, a San Francisco detective who “retired” after marrying; she, a wealthy socialite who matches her man in smarts and in drink. What mystery are they solving? Doesn’t matter. The fun’s in watching Nick and Nora trade gibes like they were Wimbledon opponents and then team up to turn their verbal acuity on some unsuspecting

Technically four exhibits under one umbrella, “All School” comprises a juried show highlighting projects created in the SSA studios, a graduation show for students who’ve completed certificate studies (Dinah Coakley, Archana Kapaleeswaran, Carlos Moreno and Mahalah Rood round out the 2014 crew), a show spotlighting the youngsters of SSA’s Teen Studio Intensive Program and a faculty show sure to do the Alamo City proud when it travels to the Rockport Center for the Arts in October. Following its public opening on Saturday afternoon, the School hosts an artists’ talk with featured certificate students at 6 p.m. Tuesday evening.
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.
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.

What the heck is Bangerz & Sass? Well for starters, after going to Miley's Bangerz tour this year we immediately knew we wanted to have a special night of Miley Cyrus amazing at the Alamo. But as great as she is, we knew that we wouldn't be satisfied if we only played her hits and didn't hear from any of the other leading pop princesses of today. So we went through all of our Katy Perry collection and fell in love with everything there. Then we wanted to hear some Taylor Swift, because we were starting to feel 22 and we felt like she belonged with us. Then that led us to some Ellie Goulding, and then some Ariana Grande, and eventually we were even rocking out to the Chainsmokers' #SELFIE and wondering why the DJ was playing "Summertime Sadness" when it wasn't even the summer.
Our DJs are taking all of that and mixing it together into the hottest party of July, featuring plenty of Katy Perry's "Fireworks," a total "Party in the USA," and soooo much more. We're going to start the night with a Twerk Off on stage, and then it's just going to get more awesome from there. Be a Teenage Dream and join us!

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.
