    Akirash Online

    Sure, Austin's Olaniyi Rasheed Akindiya aka AKIRASH has an exhibition at the Carver Museum right now – and the place is closed, of course. But this Lagos-born artist also happens to have one of the most robust websites around, though you'll need a mighty big screen to get the best effect of his huge and colorful mixed-media creations and performance pieces.

    Blanton Museum of Art: MemWars

    Many artists work in multiple mediums, but for Lubbock-raised Terry Allen, music, performance, writing, and visual artwork are truly all part of the same practice. As a visual artist, he often creates immersive sculptural installations with an aspect of performance, incorporated through projections and video. For this ninth installment in the Blanton’s Contemporary Project series, Allen reveals a three-channel video installation and a related group of drawings.

    Books, Books, Books in ATX

    Don’t forget, citizen: The best place to get your reading material is from Austin’s own Malvern Books or Half Price Books or Black Pearl Books or BookPeople or BookWoman or Reverie Books stores – in person or online. (And for the ultimate in vintage collectors’ editions and unique works on paper, we recommend the excellent South Congress Books.)Or try Bookshop.org in general – because Bookshop, unlike the online behemoth named after a river, shares the profits among all its independent-bookstore members.

    Comedy

    Esther's Follies

    Esther's Follies – Austin's not-so-secret weapon in the fight against ennui – the comedy gem that still dazzles this growing urban hub – returns to the weekly live and in-person stage of their club on Dirty Sixth, the whole troupe bringing back old favorites and debuting a new program of hilarity with topical, ripped-from-the-headlines sketches and musical numbers. And you do need a laugh or two, right about this time, don't you, citizen? (And how about a margarita to go with that?) We'd add that the mind-boggling illusions presented by magician Ray Anderson are a bonus in the night's clever spectacle ... but, the way that arch maestro conjures mystery and delight, "bonus" would be an insult.
    Thu., 8pm; Fri.-Sat., 8 & 10pm. $30-40.
