    Hayden Pedigo, Cactus Lee, Hippie Scum

    Hayden Pedigo carries a West Texas absurdist mystique, a line drawn explicitly in the Amarillo native’s support from Terry Allen on 2017’s Greetings From Amarillo. Yet even as the 29-year-old’s persona as a high plains eccentric expands, his music mesmerizes behind subtle, intricate finger-picked guitar instrumentals, meditative yet complex. This year’s sixth studio LP, The Happiest Times I Ever Ignored, draws apt comparisons to John Fahey and William Tyler. The Mexican Summer release proves Pedigo’s most polished, as he returns from tour opening for Jenny Lewis. Local songsmith Cactus Lee opens strumming new single “Alpine Skier.”

    Lizzie, the Musical

    That legendary company called Doctuh Mistuh Productions returns to Austin after a five-year hiatus to present this rock musical adaption of the grisly Borden Family murders in 1893 and the subsequent trial of Lizzie Borden. The show – which premiered in NYC in 2009 and is written by Steven Cheslik-deMeyer, Tim Maner, and Alan Steven Hewitt – is directed here by the irrepressible Michael McKelvey, with musical direction by Ellie Jarrett Shattles. And this is our full review of the production!
    Through July 30. Thu.-Sat., 7:30pm; Sun., 2pm. $24 and up.
