  • Jono Zalay

    Dude's got, what? A PhD in Neuroscience? Yeah, no shit, for real. And he's a kick-ass stand-up? Gonna tickle your medulla oblongata? Gonna feed your hungry hungry hippocampus? Hell, yes – with Austin Silver opening. Oct. 2-3. Fri., 9pm; Sat., 9 & 11pm, $10

    Velveeta Room, 521 E. Sixth, 512/766-8358

  • Mr. Burns: A Post-Electric Play

    Suggestion: Cancel all your other plans and see this thing. It's Anne Washburn's wildly praised, Simpsons-evoking homage to storytelling and popular culture. Listen: "After the collapse of civilization, a group of survivors share a campfire and begin to piece together the plot of 'The Simpsons' episode Cape Feare entirely from memory." And seven years later, the survivors' performance has mutated further. And 75 years after that, the transformation continues. This production is directed by David Long, with Jill Blackwood and Marc Pouhé leading the St. Ed's cast. Through Oct. 4. Thu.-Sat., 7:30pm; Sun., 2pm, $18-24

    Mary Moody Northen Theatre at St. Edward's University, 3001 S. Congress, 512/448-8484

  • AMODA: The Wide Inter­Consciousness

    The Austin Museum of Digital Art takes over Art.Science.Gallery. at Canopy, highlighting artists whose work explores "dreams, parallel universes, belief systems, imagined histories, altered states of consciousness, intense nostalgia, and the disorganized and surreal nature of our everyday lives." Through Oct. 3

    Art.Science.Gallery., In the Canopy compound, 916 Springdale #102

  • Bearded Lady: Skulls, Spiders, Snakes, and Stuff

    In which Michael Sieben, Mike Combs, and Will Gaynor bring their particularly vivid style of image-making to the walls of the gallery located in one of Austin's best screenprint studios.

    The Bearded Lady, 3504 E. Fourth, 512/389-0180

  • GrayDUCK Gallery: Predators, Prey, and Pixels

    Austin artist Shawn Smith's stunning show examines the evolutionary confrontation between nature and the digital world through the creation of a pixelated natural world, kind of turning cyberspace inside out to bring these creatures into the material realm. Recommended. Through Oct. 18

    grayDUCK Gallery, 2213 E. Cesar Chavez, 512/826-5334

  • Museum of Natural & Artificial Ephemerata

    This place, ah, it's one of our favorite places in the entire city; and now, after a brief hiatus, the curators are back and offering guided tours by appointment. Sat., May 16 - Sat., Dec. 5,, $5

    Museum of Natural & Artificial Ephemerata, 1808 Singleton, 512/320-0566

  • Northern-Southern: Almost Nothing

    Hot on the lightshifting heels of his "Aphotic Zone" at this same venue, Shawn Camp curates a new group show featuring works of "ontological ambiguity," with artists Stella Alesi, Taylor Holland, Germaine Keller, Claude Van Lingen, Ender Martos, McKay Otto, Caitlin G. McCollom, and more. Sat., Sept. 26 - Sat., Dec. 5,

    Northern-Southern, 1800 Koenig

  • The Blanton Museum: The Brothers Grimm

    Here the Blanton invites us to explore the "unsanitized" version of those ancient and grisly tales compiled by the legendary Brothers once upon a time, and this exhibition is predicated on the gorgeous and eerie and, we reckon, unforgettable gouache and pastel drawings by New York-based Austin native Natalie Frank. The artist captures a phantasmagoria of narratives in the 40-plus images on display in the soaring gallery, and the show is accompanied by Frank's new book of Grimmstory illustrations, a book that was designed by – be still, our calligraphiliac hearts!Marian Bantjes. Recommended? Yes, even if some mad-eyed crone with spiders in her hair warns you to stay away. Be brave, citizen! Be valiant and true, and seek this gathering of vivid treasures within the Blanton! Through Nov. 15

    The Blanton Museum of Art, 200 E. MLK, 512/471-7324
