      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.

      Theatre

      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.

      Underground Comedy

      This newly revitalized basement venue is dedicated to "bringing the best in alternative comedy with shows seven nights a week." For instance: Monday starts things off with that sprightly revue of optimism called Fuck This Week, there's Rob Gagnon's unpredictable Sandbox on Tuesdays, the all-female comedy showcase called Garage on Wednesdays, and find out where some of these stand-ups come from via the My Block showcase this Thursday. Then, on Friday, the Battle of the Sketches beings anew – and don't miss the inarguable power of Sure Thing hosted by Duncan Carson and Brendan K. O’Grady. Saturday's got an A-Team of historical figures (Leonardo da Vinci! Harriet Tubman! Carl Sagan!) brought back to life and saving the day as Clone Squad, followed by some story-centered Sweet Lightning, and – see website for more.
