    Lovers and Liars Reading

    Amanda Eyre Ward is aces with dysfunctional families. With her latest novel, Lovers and Liars (out May 14), the Austin author returns to some of the same winning elements of her 2020 bestseller The Jetsetters, a Reese’s Book Club pick – think: estranged siblings, epic baggage, swooning locales. Here, it’s the Peacock sisters descending on a Northern England castle for youngest Sylvie’s impulsive wedding. Everybody loses their mind a little, in ways that are comic but recognizable, in a large-hearted story about finding the people who really get you and holding on for dear life. – Kimberley Jones

    Paul Cornish Trio

    L.A.-based pianist Paul Cornish has built up quite the CV since coming up through Houston’s prestigious High School for the Performing and Visual Arts. After studying at the Herbie Hancock Institute of Jazz at UCLA, it’s no wonder sessions and sideperson work with the likes of Joshua Redman, Louis Cole, Terrace Martin, Mark Guiliana, Snoh Aalegra, Thumpasaurus, and HAIM followed. He was also commissioned by the Apollo Chamber Players to write a piece for the Houston Library System’s centennial. His No Pressure tour with bassist Jermaine Paul and drummer Jonathan Pinson marks his first jaunt as a leader. – Michael Toland

    Waiting to Exhale: a Post-Mother’s Day Variety Show

    If you don’t laugh, you cry, and no one knows that better than a mom. The Green Room – you know the place – is helping out those noble women by presenting a post-Mother’s Day, all-female showcase featuring Ivy Le, LaLaDanielle, DVND, Margeaux, and 2023 Best of Austin winner Rochelle McConico. It’s a mini-extravaganza, with poetry and music and comedy for every burnt-out lady in your life. Light it up and relax on a weekday. Come on, mamas. You’ve earned it. – Cat McCarrey

    Window Dressing XXXV: Rebecca Marino

    Between gallery installations, ICOSA Collective utilizes their window space facing the Canopy thoroughfare to showcase short-running art shows. These artists often experiment with the limits of their window framings while their work remains displayed 24/7. ICOSA Collective is proud to present this week the latest multimedia work from visual artist/curator Rebecca Marino, “DOGSBODY IS DEAD.” The Austinite takes inspiration from author Kathrine Dunn’s semi-autobiographical work Attic, which delves into life as a young woman incarcerated in the 1960s Midwest. The displayed art, ICOSA Collective promises, will unpack “the emotional/ behavioral standards placed upon women and the often tragic results that ensue.” – James Scott
    Through May 20; opening reception: Sun. 19
