Mötley Crüe built their brand on Satan (Shout at the Devil), strippers (Girls Girls Girls), and The Dirt. Having announced retirement earlier this year, the original Hollywood quartet hammered a preemptive nail in the reunion coffin, with Nikki Sixx, Vince Neil, Tommy Lee, and Mick Mars signing a “cessation of touring agreement,” which prevents them from touring as Mötley Crüe beyond 2015. Opener Alice Cooper is the icing on this glam-rock cake. – Neph Basedow
Clift makes his screen debut in this magnificent Western as the surrogate son of a driven cattleman, played by Wayne. But father-son conflicts arise during a cattle drive, and it gets downright oedipal on the range. (Double bill: The Heiress)

Paper Chairs presents the touring version of this popular show of backwoodsy, homicidal, musical Americana – written by Elizabeth Doss, scored by Mark Stewart, directed by Keri Boyd, and featuring Kelli Bland as The Sherrif among a lively cast of ne'er-do-wells and slaughtered innocents. "Part slapstick exorcism and part ramshackle hoedown, this play investigates the many ways and whys we carry out a death sentence." And when we say "touring version," we mean it's fixin' to turn some of your favorite Texas watering holes into dens of foot-stomping, theatrical iniquity. Two Austin performances: Tue., July 15, 9pm; Cheer Up Charlie's, 900 Red River. Thu., July 17, 9pm; The Longbranch Inn, 1133 E. 11th. $5-10
