  • Carnaval Brasileiro 2020

    Carnaval is Austin's Brazilian-style Mardi Gras...since 1978. Five hours of non-stop live Carnaval music compels revelers to stay on the dance floor all night! Outrageous costumes provide an outlet for Austin's creative juices to flow...not to mention abundant eye candy! It has been described as a rave...with live music. Maybe!

      Felice Brothers, Johnathan Rice

      The Felice Brothers roil like the Band: rootsy and literary anthems delivered atop a ramshackle enthusiasm. Behind last month’s Undress, the prolific New York quartet aims more political, balancing bitterness and compassion for a nation under duress. Johnathan Rice opens with The Long Game, the tender-hearted balladeer’s first LP since 2013, which chronicles his breakup with longtime squeeze Jenny Lewis.

      Hamilton

      This, in case you somehow didn't know (and please accept our sincere congratulations on finally waking up from that years-long coma, yo, it's good to have you back), is Lin-Manuel Miranda's hip-hop musical about America's Founding Father Alexander Hamilton. Brought to town by the good people of Broadway in Austin, it's a phenomenon that's worthy of its endless hype, and they say tickets are possibly still available if you were born on a full moon, the wind is coming in from the northeast, and the Westlake sibyl dances a clockwise tarantella during consultation. Or, better: See the website right here for the show's two-days-before ticket lottery.
      May 28-June 16. Tue.-Fri., 8pm; Sat., 2 & 8pm; Sun., 1 & 7pm. $79-539.

      Sebadoh, Waveless

      Lou Barlow’s anxieties just don’t quit. Six years after eighth Sebadoh album Defend Yourself, May’s new Act Surprised oozes a sludgy, 15-track epic, reverberating the same unease that colors his frenetic guitar work in Dinosaur Jr. and the ennui of his folksier solo output. Alongside Jason Loewenstein and Bob D’Amico, Barlow live wires a jittery collision of grunge and college rock.
