    CANCELED: Steve Hackman's Brahms x Radiohead

    It’s difficult to imagine the commonalities between the 19th-century work of Johannes Brahms’ First Symphony and Radiohead’s 1997 OK Computer. Yet conductor Steve Hackman will be leading the Austin Symphony Orchestra and three vocalists in performing an exploratory rendition of both works, as an orchestral and chamber music palette guides moody interpretations of hits like “Karma Police,” and “Paranoid Android.” A fusion of both artists, the Grammy-awarded band’s lyrics will at times embellish Brahms’ original pieces, while the classical composer’s Romantic motifs will alternately weave through Radiohead’s melodies.

    Stephen F's Bar: The Austin, 1920s

    Every Thursday for the month of April, Stephen F's Bar & Terrace will bring history to life at their vintage pop-up, The Austin, featuring dishes and cocktails inspired by the hotel's original menu (est. 1924). How about some panko-fried asparagus, Gulf blue crab salad, or porcini ravioli, and more – with, say, a Bee's Knees or Corpse Reviver No. 2 to wash 'em down with? You can even indulge, if you wish, in authentic Dominican cigars from Bolivar Cigar Shop – while you drink and dine and take in unparalleled views of Downtown Austin as live music fills the air: Just the thing, we reckon, to make this month's Thursdays roar with delight.
    Through April 27. Thursdays, 4-7pm
