    Alex Coke & Carl Michel Sextet (CD release)

    Crack guitarist Carl Michel and woodwind magician Alex Coke go way back in Austin jazz with the Creative Opportunity Orchestra and the Worthy Constituents, among others. Originally germinated during the pandemic to keep the musical wheels greased, their sextet recruited enough top-shelf locals to qualify as a veritable supergroup: steel guitarist Bob Hoffnar, harpist Elaine Barber, bassist James Suter, and vibraphonist Carolyn Trowbridge. The drumless sixsome’s distinctive avant-jazz has already graced 2021’s superb debut disk, The Emissary. Now the band celebrates the release of album No. 2, the equally strange and beautiful Emergence.

    Stephen F's Bar: The Austin, 1920s

    Every Thursday for the month of April, Stephen F's Bar & Terrace will bring history to life at their vintage pop-up, The Austin, featuring dishes and cocktails inspired by the hotel's original menu (est. 1924). How about some panko-fried asparagus, Gulf blue crab salad, or porcini ravioli, and more – with, say, a Bee's Knees or Corpse Reviver No. 2 to wash 'em down with? You can even indulge, if you wish, in authentic Dominican cigars from Bolivar Cigar Shop – while you drink and dine and take in unparalleled views of Downtown Austin as live music fills the air: Just the thing, we reckon, to make this month's Thursdays roar with delight.
    Through April 27. Thursdays, 4-7pm
