    Andrew Dismukes

    Says here that the Chronicle described this Dismukes as "Extremely Fucking Hilarious." Well, yeah, because it's true. Then the punk (he's only 22, FFS) ditched Austin and moved to New York and now he's writing for Saturday Night Live. Because he's extremely fucking hilarious. (We were right, see? We win!) And now he's back in town for a week at Cap City. Do yourself a favor, comedy-lovers, and don't miss what this guy does with a stand-up stage.
    April 25-28. Wed.-Thu., 8pm; Fri.-Sat., 7:30 & 10pm. $12-23.

    Sixth Street Gallery: Soul of America

    "Some say the America of today is unexpected, surprising, and unforeseen; while others say they saw it coming long ago."

    The Lone Bellow

    The Lone Bellow jumped from Brooklyn to Nashville to record last September’s third LP Walk Into a Storm, recruiting Americana super producer Dave Cobb to helm the harmony-bursting project. The Music City move proved less a country turn than a spark of soulful fire to the trio’s emotive melodies and vocal interplay, surging with Civil Wars passion while playfully rolling in big hooks live.
