    Becoming: An Intimate Conversation with Michelle Obama

    Remember those days when a president's wife was very publicly engaged and intellectually fierce and not married to a bloated bag of sewage with tiny little hands? The former first lady takes to the Erwin Center stage to share experiences and events, both public and private, that have shaped her – from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her years spent at the most famous address in the world. Note: You probably want to buy your tickets ASAP, because this nation (with good reason) loves Michelle Obama.

    7 Minutes in Heaven: A Celebration of Esme Barrera w/ Cigarettes After Sex (solo), Ted Leo, Jim Ward, the Crack Pipes, John Wesley Coleman, the John-Pauls, Sara O, Mahealani

    The enduring legacy of Esme Barrera is the impact an individual can make by being enthusiastic, generous, loving. The Austin music booster, murdered on New Year’s Day 2012, remains a sweetheart fixture of the homegrown scene seven years after her tragic death.: Friday, Barrera’s favorite acts and best friends play Mohawk in her memory. Greg Gonzalez (Cigarettes After Sex) and Jim Ward (Sparta), both hailing from the honoree’s hometown of El Paso, headline alongside punk/indie bard Ted Leo. Austin acts she adored, the Crack Pipes and John Wesley Coleman, plus her dear friend Mark Fagan’s newer group the John-Pauls, perform as well. Money raised through the concert goes toward a Girls Rock Camp, along with 25 scholarships, in El Paso.: “We wanted to do something big and unique that captured Esme’s magic,” says Erica Flores, who volunteered with Barrera at Girls Rock Austin and heads up the El Paso project with fellow GRA alum Jess Bee.: Bee, who got into GRA through Barrera’s urging, remembers her friend saying, “I wish there was something like this when I was growing up in El Paso.”: Now there will be.
