    Keeled Scales showcase w/ Jordan Moser, Karima Walker, Will Johnson

    Over nearly a decade, local imprint Keeled Scales has built a roster of provocative and eclectic songwriters, championing an emphasis on emotionally impactful artists who find power in the quietest crevices. The Cactus hosts three of the label’s best, with Will Johnson headlining behind the indie troubadour’s post-Centro-Matic solo releases Wire Mountain and El Capitan, two harrowing yet gorgeous platters. Karima Walker floats in from Tucson with 2001’s Waking the Dreaming Body, looping patient songscapes unfolded in hushed tones, while ATX’s Jordan Moser winds with tender melodies through the Long Night.

    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.

    A Giant Dog, Blue Jean Queen, Geranium Drive

    Look no further for glam rock gravitas than A Giant Dog, where fiery, electric showmanship from guitarists Andrew Cashen and Andy Bauer fuses with Sabrina Ellis’ piercing howl. Originals boast irreverent humor – “Photograph” revels in a comfortable relationship marked lovingly by saggy tits and pants you’ve split – while latest “Suddenly Seymour” rests the Little Shop of Horrors classic on a fuzzy slab of feedback. On night one, they’re joined by pop country singer Blue Jean Queen and psychedelic quartet Geranium Drive, while cheeky TV’s Daniel and indie rockers Nevil and Hot Cakes make for an eclectic second evening.

    Ride the Wave

    This new play by Mattie Barber-Bockelman is about "three bros searching for an epic surf on the last day of summer." 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.
