  • SouthPop: Live Music & Dead Clubs

    The South Austin Popular Culture Center presents this "visual history through T-shirts," chronicling the rise and fall of bands and venues, charting that storied sequence across the public strata of the cotton upper-body garments once relegated to underwear but now (for decades, now) more akin to personal billboards of opinion and taste. Through Dec. 23.

    South Austin Popular Culture Center, 1516-B S. Lamar, 512/440-8318

  • SVT Gallery: Vivid Section

    Here's a retrospective of work by your Arts Listings editor, Wayne Alan Brenner, featuring pen-and-ink drawings, altered and embroidered cloth, screenprints, mixed-media works, and a new 4-by-6-foot portrait of Philip K. Dick in acrylics. Maybe check in and see what this fellow who's been writing about the scene for years can actually do, artwise, himself? Through Dec. 30.

    Salvage Vanguard Theater, 2803 Manor Rd., 512/474-7886

  • Tiny Park: Divergent Space

    Oh! The entire gallery's filled with the works of Leah Haney, and all we can do is stare in wonder, transfixed by the artist's exploded conflations of multidimensional perspective and architectural renderings on wooden panels and more. Smart, elegant, and with colors like Frank Lloyd Wright went on an Adderall bender and redesigned Bifrost. Through Jan. 5. Saturdays, noon-5pm, and by appointment. 1101 Navasota.
