    Momma, Blushing

    New York’s Momma serves up Nineties alt-rock revivalism – both self-aware and tongue in cheek. The duo’s third full-length album, Household Name, aspires to live up to those ambitions, but questions the cost to get there: mocking kissing up to industry leaders on “Rip Off” and fame disillusionment on “Rockstar.” Polished and laden with hooks, the 12-song record bites through jagged song structures, distorted power-chord slabs, and breakneck fuzz. Joining the mall gig, local quartet Blushing pingpongs between one-riffed sledgehammers and crystalline reverb from last year’s sophomore Possessions.

    The Latino Comedy Project: Gentrifucked

    After sold-out performances from Austin to San Francisco, Emmy-nominated sketch troupe the Latino Comedy Project returns with an encore presentation of their acclaimed show Gentrifucked, once again hilariously attacking the causes and consequences of gentrification as it affects Austin and communities across America. The LCP asks: What happens when a community’s piñata shops are demolished and replaced with cat-friendly vegan coffeehouses? When neighborhood pulgas are transformed overnight into luxury condos? Or when Mexicans are replaced with obsessively dog-walking paddleboard enthusiasts?Through a bright mix of live sketches, music, and original videos, the LCP provides all the hard answers and leaves no one – no one! – unscathed. Directed by Adrian Villegas, the cast of writer-performers also includes Cindy Brio, Omar Gallaga, Thelma Rosana, Mical Trejo, and Nick Walker.
    Through Jan. 28. Thu.-Sat., 8pm. $22-27.

    Ride the Wave

In the multimedia performance, set in a loosely imagined 2060s rich with vibes, grooves, and laughter, a group of young women riff on the surfer bro trope to examine how friendship, the pursuit of freedom, and growing up will be affected by climate catastrophe. Directed by Teresa Cruz for the Vortex.: DUUUUUUDE: See our full review right here.
    Through Jan. 28. Thu.-Sat., 8pm; Sun., 6pm. $15-37.
