    Claire's Knee (1970)

    World Cinema Classics: Rohmer's film centers on a soon-to-be-married man who is hurtled into an intrigue with a young girl for the entertainment of a novelist seeking plot ideas. Instead, the man becomes fixated on the knee of the girl's younger sister. As Proust had his madeleine, so too Rohmer has Claire's knee.

    GZA, Brownout

    Brownout remains famous for jamming alongside Prince and reimagining Black Sabbath, but sporadic collaborations with Wu-Tang Clan’s GZA, beginning with an electric SXSW 2012 set, produced some genius. Only date on the MC’s summer tour with a live backing band, the local Latin funk crew backs a heavy dose of 1995 sophomore album Liquid Swords, a dark horse for favorite solo project among Wu-ficionados, and plenty of classic Clan bangers.

    Music at the Austin Chronicle Hot Sauce Festival w/ Mike & the Moonpies, Alesia Lani, Superfónicos, Tiarra Girls, Carson McHone

    Free admission with a donation of three nonperishable food items or a $5 cash donation to the Central Texas Food Bank: Carson McHone (11:30am), Tiarra Girls (12:30pm), Superfónicos (1:30pm), Alesia Lani (2:30pm), Mike & the Moonpies (3:30pm): Mike & the Moonpies are the hardest-working honky-tonkers in Texas. The local sextet rose from a residency at the White Horse to become two-step ambassadors across the nation, exporting a raucous mix of traditional and contemporary country to the tune of 275 dates: a year.: “I’ve had the same guys now for about 10 years, so it’s amazing nobody’s killed somebody yet,” laughs lead Moonpie Mike Harmeier while on the road to Houston. “We have a nice new Chevy conversion van with a TV and Xbox in it, so it keeps morale a little higher.”: Following 2015 breakout LP Mockingbird, the locals captured their live set on a double album last year during a three-night stand at the WinStar World Casino & Resort in Oklahoma. The pared-down but still energetic live set informed what Harmeier wanted from their fourth album, recorded at Yellow Dog Studios in Wimberley and expected out early next year.: “With Mockingbird, I knew exactly how I wanted that to sound,” offers Harmeier. “We brought in a saxophone player and all that, and this one I just wanted it to be about the band. We cut it live in five days and it’s more electric guitar-driven, a lot of twin guitars. I didn’t play any acoustic guitar on it.: “It’s really different from anything else we’ve ever done. It’s a rocking record.”: Mike & the Moonpies preview new tunes Sunday while headlining the Chronicle Hot Sauce Festival, for which songwriter Carson McHone dishes country ballads, Alesia Lani serves soulful R&B, Superfónicos spice up Afro-Cuban funk, and reigning U-18 Austin Music Award winners Tiarra Girls.
