                          • 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.

                          • The Manhattan Short Film Festival

                            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
                            Roadkill Ghost Choir 10/3 8:00PM
                             

                            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.

                            Huevos Rancheros Gala 10/4 9:00AM
                             

                            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.”

                            The Alamo City’s only “100 percent renewably powered festival” kicks off a new chapter at San Antonio College’s William R. Sinkin EcoCentro, a recently dedicated building honoring Solar San Antonio’s late founder via solar panels, a water catchment tank, xeriscaping and an electric vehicle charging station. One of 80 events included in American Solar Energy Society’s national tour, the 13th annual Solar Fest offers live music on a solar-powered stage, tree giveaways and a kids’ zone while connecting guests with environmental organizations, solar installers and green building professionals.
