    Handmade Films Series

    George Harrison wasn’t just a musician: He was also an enormous film fan, so much so that he established one of the most exciting, innovative, devious, and artistically diverse British film studios of the 1980s. Join Austin writer Kristen O’Brien, daughter of co-founder Denis O’Brien, for a weekend of four of the studio’s best: crime classics Mona Lisa and The Long Good Friday, twisted kids’ delight Time Bandits, and wicked sex comedy The Missionary. – Richard Whittaker

    LGBTQ Quality of Life Town Hall

    A civic-minded queer is a happy one, as they know their actions will have a big impact on how the city’s LGBTQ community grows. At this open town hall, input is sought for a potential project many years discussed: an LGBTQ+ cultural center in Austin. No more trading whispers in Instagram DMs – it’s time to make your voice heard by the ATX City Council. Arrive early to peruse tabling by various city departments and community orgs; get your parking validated; and refresh on the LGBTQ Quality of Life Commission’s work by visiting austintexas.gov/content/lesbian-gay-bisexual-transgender-and-queer-quality-life-advisory-commission. – James Scott

    Local Queer April Book Club: H.E. Edgmon

    South Austin’s best little queer bookstore hosts the first-ever “night with the author” event for this LGBTQ literary society. Local Queer ATX welcomes H.E. Edgmon to discuss his newest work – Godly Heathens, a young adult fantasy novel featuring nonbinary and trans teens discovering not only their true identities but also, you know, magical forces beyond comprehension. The novel features Indigenous characters, an essential element for Edgmon in his work. “In his writing and his daily life,” the author bio states, “H.E. will always prioritize the pursuit of an Indigenous future, the safety of our most vulnerable, and making a terrible joke whenever possible.” To enjoy these terrible jokes, please bring a blanket or chair as this meeting’s out of doors. – James Scott

    Prom Prep DIY

    How do you do, Austin-area teenagers? I am a hip and cool person who was at one time a teen, so I can confidently say the best way to celebrate le promenade is by making your own accessories. Yes, yes, I hear you: But James, you cry, what about the cheap handbag I’m obsessed with from Claire’s – where hip cool teens shop? What of the boring Goodfellow bowtie I covet every time my mom drags me to Target? Believe it or not, you will be complimented far more on a custom, self-made piece of finery – like a handbag, bowtie, boutonnière, corsage, shoe clip, or lapel pin – than any sweatshop slop a corporation begs you to buy. Reject consumerism, teens! Embrace your local library’s prom DIY crafting event! – James Scott

    RESCHEDULED FROM 9/22/23: Madonna

    Do you like to boogie-woogie? Now recovered from a 2023 bacterial infection, the Queen of Pop returns to complete her previously postponed Celebration Tour. As Madge’s first live retrospective, the show pulls from all corners of her 40-year career. Recent set lists reveal classics “Material Girl” and “Vogue” remain live staples, while the artist has also revived long-omitted deep cuts like “Live to Tell” and “Die Another Day.” I’m most pumped for Y2K banger “Music,” which the tireless singer once paired live, at 43 years old, with 15 jump squats. Still groundbreaking decades later, the choreo recently inspired a TikTok fitness challenge. – Carys Anderson
