    Yard Dog: Odd Pottery

    Odd, they say? Well, yes. Odd, a bit eerie, and totally gorgeous, to be sure, as this excellent SoCo venue presents a collection of new work by Waxahachie potter Carl Block.

    Art.Science.Gallery.: Trading Card Show

    If you like art inspired by science, you'll love this. If you like trading cards, you'll love this. If you like both of those things at once, you may be overwhelmed with joy at this fifth annual fundraising event featuring hundreds of original, affordable, miniature works of science-celebrating art by artists from all over the country. That's right, 2.5-by-3.5-inch works of art, already framed for your convenience, waiting for a home on your wall or – hey, it's that time of year – the wall of a lucky friend or friends.
    Through Dec. 24

    Vanessa Gonzalez

    Holy shit, Christmas has come early this year! Austin's own Vanessa Gonzalez is headlining a week at Cap City, and we can only hope the storied joint doesn't collapse from the force of audience response. We're barely exaggerating: The few times we've seen her perform, half the crowd was, like, screaming laughter, and the other half was gasping for breath so they could scream too. Some comedians are clever, some are sharp. Gonzalez is a bit of both of those, sure, but she's basically just … so … fucking … funny. We're doing ourselves a favor by recommending her; because, if you're unfamiliar with the woman's onstage talent and you go see her because we told you to, you're gonna think little but Thank You, O Savvy Chronicle for the next several years.
    Dec. 19-23. Tue.-Sat., 8pm. Extra show: Fri., 10:30pm. $7-23.

    Every day through Dec. 30, 6-10pm (Fridays and Saturdays, 6-11pm). $16 (children 5 and under free).
