    Hot///Cakes, Letting Up Despite Great Faults, Glasshealer, Emily No Good

    Freshly signed to Japanese label P-Vine (alongside modern indie staple Alvvays), Letting Up Despite Great Faults says bon voyage at Vegas before setting their blissful dream-pop sails for a four-night Japan tour. A year after releasing their fourth full-length, IV, the gleaming shoegazers churned out EP Crumble, maintaining New Wave danceability while melting into deep guitar tones. On their second Friday in a row at the venue, HOT///CAKES deliver garage eclecticism. Alt-rockers Glasshealer and the popping-up-everywhere “Where’s Waldo” of the indie scene, Emily No Good, round out the bill.

    Ion Art: The Surreal Garden

    For the second consecutive year, Ion Art will illuminate the Zilker Botanical Garden with their Surreal Garden exhibition, an interactive art experience full of fantastical neon sculptures created by Sharon and Greg Keshishian and the relentlessly inventive Ion Art team. (You probably recall the brilliance they visited upon the public in the first iteration of this multivalent wonderment, right?) By integrating such a glowing, flickering, shimmering show into the serene setting of Austin's botanical gardens, the artists turn an already stunning event into a neon extravaganza – and a wonderful way to benefit the venue. Suggestion: Dress in your surreal best for night full of art, music, costumes, live entertainment, dancing, food trailers, cash bars, and more – and do check out the posh VIP preview option for April 6.
    Through April 15. Thu.-Sat., 6:30-11pm. $40 and up.

    Mavi, Shloob, Wakai, Ahmir

    The 23-year-old truly impressed on “EL TORO COMBO MEAL” off Earl Sweatshirt’s 2019 EP, Feet of Clay. “Lost my dawg to the staircase, took the highest spot on the podium/ Ghostin’ n***as, probably smokin’ to the thought of knowin’ us,” opened the Charlotte lyricist during an utterly ridiculous verse on a cut that quelled any potential use of the Spider-Man Pointing at Spider-Man meme. Releases such as the 2022 album Laughing So Hard, It Hurts ship dense rhymes within jazzy packaging.
