    Czech That Film Texas (2023)

    Film fest Czech That Film Texas promotes contemporary cinema from Czech filmmakers that “not only expose viewers to Czech culture, but also enlighten audiences, bring people together, and present inspired entertainment for all.” This Tuesday’s kickoff film comes from directors Jan Vejnar & Tomáš Pavlíček and netted both Best Director and Actress at the Czech Oscars. She Came at Night, also called Přišla v noci, digs into the heart-pounding horror of a mother-in-law overstaying her visit to a young thirtysomething couple – featuring Simona Peková as the titular “she,” a 60-year-old diva who takes over her daughter and son-in-law’s lives. The full festival lineup includes Brothers (April 16), We Have Never Been Modern (April 23), and Restore Point (April 30), all at the Violet Crown. – James Scott

    Exploraphoria With Garrett Buss

    Hosted by a man who, according to his website, is by all legal definitions a “comedian,” this showcase pushes comedy boundaries every first and third Tuesday. Yes, that’s right: You come to Exploraphoria and you’ll get experimental comedy – the kind of goofy galaxy-brained biz that’ll be like nothing you’ve seen before. Buss promises his curated collection of acts is a show “you can’t find anywhere else.” So if you’ve been snoozing through whatever the ol’ Comedy Mothership’s been oozing from its Sixth Street site, consider this an alarm clock waking you from your comedy coma. Beep, beep, babe. – James Scott

    Kids Create! Frida Kahlo Flower Crowns

    This Tuesday is Día de los Niños, or Childrens’ Day, and how better to celebrate the kiddos than by performing papercraft in the style of Frida Kahlo. The Mexican artist was known for depicting herself in surreal portraits surrounded by flora and fauna. While she struggled against societal and physical-health issues, Kahlo’s art has only grown in popularity since her passing at 47. Kids can on this special day learn more about her legacy through creation while guardians can delight in the many, MANY great materials on offer at your local library. – James Scott

    Nightlife & Parties

    Le Femme

    From the feminine forehead of local drag artist the Trans Era sprouts a show for and featuring the trans femme goddesses of Austin’s queer scene. Taking up the wildcard spot this month at Fourth Street spot Rain, this show’s lineup is mythic: Moxie, Iggy Bank, Jenna Talia, Monica Monae Davenport, Ryan, Cambrian Explosion, Aeon Mavis York, and Amber Nicole Davenport. Eighteen- to 20-year-olds should keep a crisp $10 for the bar cover, but old-heads 21 and over must only pay $5 to pass into the goddesses’ domain. – James Scott

    Special Screenings

    Monty Python and the Holy Grail Quote-Along Movie Party (1975)

    Normally, talking in a Drafthouse would result in the Black Knight trying to bite your legs off. But at this special quote-along you’re actively encouraged to join in with all the great one-liners from Monty Python’s deeply deranged retelling of the legend of Arthur, King of the Britons. So grab your shell steed and inflatable sword (both provided), and ponder aloud with friends how a five-ounce bird could possibly carry a one-pound coconut. – Richard Whittaker

    Non-Binary Squeer Dance

    Okay, sure: All the movies say dance to the beat of your own drum, but listen! Dancing to any beat is a little harder when you don’t fit in the gendered mold many traditional dance styles require. Thankfully, at least here in ATX, we’ve got workout warrior Erica Nix bringing a bit of genderfree fun to the Southern classic: square dancing. Bring comfy shoes, a positive attitude, and maybe a sweatband or two as Nix schools y’all on squeer dancing on the CUC patio. – James Scott

    Queer Youth ATX Relaunch Mixer

    We live in a state where LGBTQ+ youth are under constant threat from a conservative government more concerned with queer kids than, I dunno, fixing our aging energy grid. In comes Queer Youth ATX, a direct-aid resource run by previous Chronicle op-ed contributor Garrett Chase, which is back after a little three-year break. Celebrate the resource’s return at this social featuring all the heavy-hitters of an Austin queer party: Local Queer ATX bringing the good vibes, the Little Gay Shop popping up with a pop-up, and Kind Clinic providing mobile HIV/STI testing.: – James Scott
