    Ragnar Kjartansson’s S.S. Hangover

    Less a concert than an outlandish performance sculpture, Austin’s contemporary chamber ensemble Density512 don formal wear, board an Icelandic fishing boat, and spend hours floating around a lagoon before a crowd of onlookers. S.S. Hangover, a musical marathon of irony and exhaustion, was devised by Reykjavik artist Ragnar Kjartansson. His countryman and collaborator Kjartan Sveinsson, famous for a 15-year tenure in Sigur Rós, presents his accompanying score opening weekend.

    Merle Haggard birthday party

    Bakersfield country fundamentalist, folk poet, and singer beyond compare, Merle Haggard would’ve blown out 81 candles April 6. For 13 years, Austin Songwriters Group has thrown him a party, this free blowout soliciting donations to the Ted Branson Medical Fund. Austin luminaries celebrate, including former Haggard sideman Redd Volkaert and obvious contenders like Dale Watson, Floyd Domino, Bobby Earl Smith, and Stephen Doster.
