  • All's Well with Mac and Joe

    That's Mac Blake and Joe Hafkey, of course: those former Jazz Cigarette guys, now taking over the Cap City reins from noble horseman Matt Bearden who's left the slot once held by his long-running Punch! series in their capable hands. (Note: Punch! was so often sold out in advance, we hardly ever mentioned it here, you know? The same might be true of All's Well – because Blake and Hafkey will be filling each Tuesday with loads of talented locals – so book your seats early.) Tuesdays, 8pm. $5-9

    Cap City Comedy Club, 8120 Research #100, 512/467-2333

  • One Page Salon

    Here's that monthly gathering, hosted by the ever-delightful Owen Egerton, featuring writers and creators sharing just one page from a work-in-progress. We reckon – especially because Jeffrey Mays, Becka Oliver, Peter McCrady , Oscar Rodriguez, Gwyn Egerton, and Mary Helen Specht are the guests tonight – you won't want to miss this evening of quick readings and slow drinking. Tue., May 5, 7pm, Free

    Whip In, 1950 S. I-35, 512/442-5337

  • Livestrong Foundation: Counting Radiation

    "My works on paper examine autobiography via repetition and ritual," says Megan Hildebrandt. "I am interested in creating proof of my existence on paper." Here, the artwork charts the experience of being diagnosed with and treated for cancer at age 25. For Hildebrandt, it was a trial; for viewers, it's now a visually stunning treat. Through May 30
