    AARC: Storied and Pop Japan

    Two new art shows at the Asian American Resource Center. First, there's STORIED, in which Katherine Leung reflects the Tuvan culture in her Faces of Central Texas series, incorporating the folklore of golden light gods; and JU Salvant draws upon the personal history of a young girl’s journey from Vietnam to America for the visual story, Red Sky in the Morning. And then there's POP JAPAN, curated by Guzu Gallery's own Vincent X. Torres, presenting an array of notable characters from Japanese television, film, anime, and manga.

    Books

    Austin International Poetry Festival

    The irrepressible and relentlessly versiform event begins its 27th annual inundation of our rapidly embiggening river city. Poets from all over Texas; from all over the United States; hell, from all over the world: massing in the ATX, regaling one another and passersby and gathered crowds with their crafted harangues and lyrical elegies, hawking multiple copies of their latest broadsheets and chapbooks, drinking too much coffee and chai in so many cafes throughout this vibrant urban conflagration we call home. See website for more.

    Comedy

    Esther's: New Year, New Follies

    Ah, the fun seldom pauses, with musical comedy skits, magic, and a political satirical revue where the bustling backdrop of Sixth Street is on view through the stagefront window! Reminisce on all the news-makers, celebrities, events, and mayhem that made 2018 so memorable with A Year in Review. Watch as the new Dems diversify the hill and take on Trump in Bohemian Crapsody, and more. Bonus: That sexy magician Ray Anderson is going to wow you with illusions your mind won't believe your eyes have seen!
    Thu.-Sat., 8pm. $25-35.
