Several cult favorite movies, “Dazed and Confused,” “Office Space,” and “Boyhood,” share something in common: Austin. As Austinites, we not only enjoy these movies for themselves, but get to see our city on the big screen.
Currently, a movie is in production that not only has Austin as a backdrop, but also prides itself on having deep Austin roots. The “Vecinos” script was written by a local playwright; it had two separate runs as a play; and the film uses local talent, and crew.
“Vecinos” tells a story many will appreciate, about family, love, and the complexity of finding the people and places that make a home.[Read more…]

There is no right or wrong way to celebrate Fourth of July in Austin. Feel like a more traditional cookout with fireworks? A festive parade? A refreshing swim? What about a good, old-fashioned boogie down all night long?
If you choose to stay curled up indoors with a book and pet of choice on your lap, absolutely no judgement there, either. However, if you feel like getting out and about for our nation’s Independence Day, then here are eight diverse events for you to choose from.[Read more…]
Seriously? June is almost in the rear view and the summer swelter is officially in gear. After a day of floating the river, dipping at Barton Springs, or simply avoiding the temps, get out on the town for some sweet live music.
This week, we recommend spacey ’70s folk rock, a wild folk/punk band with a 20-year career (and counting), and a bouncy pop/rock group designed around fun and Austin weird. Stay cool, stay awesome, and listen local.[Read more…]
Founded in 1993, The Adderley School for the Performing Arts operates in both Texas and California. Janet Adderley, founder and veteran of Broadway and television, calls Austin her home.
Since the school’s inception, thousands of children across all age groups have found a passion for musical theater. On stage, they gain confidence in their voice and movement.[Read more…]
Howdy, hella rad Austinites! The heat of summer is upon us and what better way to celebrate the warmer months than steamy music from around the world. This weekend, we take a sonic tour through dozens of genres, styles, and influences. We start with Middle Eastern, segue into female-fronted Latin, and close with a band so diverse, I’d run out of space defining them. Enjoy the weekend and listen local![Read more…]
Happy Father’s Day, dads and dudes! As a fellow member of the I-dad-so-hard community, I say Sunday should be a day of appreciation and reflection on all the hard work, sacrifices, and love you pour into your families. And yes, dadding can also be super fun.
But why does Dad Day have to be limited to Sunday? There’s great live music all weekend! This week, we recommend ROT Rally heavy metal and two record release parties guaranteed to please. Enjoy the weekend and listen local![Read more…]
Another weekend, another massive slate of incredible live music. This time around, we recommend a Black Fret showcase, Austin rock violinist’s latest project, and ’80s synth Knight Rider would be proud of. Dig the weekend, dig the vibes, and listen local![Read more…]
