    Umlauf Sculpture Garden: With Out, With In

    If you're standing at the crossroads of wood and sculpture, one of the talented giants you'll see landmarking that intersection will be James Surls. If you're at the Umlauf Sculpture Garden and Museum for this new show, you'll be amazed by more than 30 of that maestro's works – many of his iconic, surrealistic wooden creations as well as a few of his giant steel and bronze structures. Note: This is, surprisingly, Surls' first solo exhibition of sculptures in Austin.
    Through Aug. 18

    Underground Comedy

    This newly revitalized basement venue is dedicated to "bringing the best in alternative comedy with shows seven nights a week." For instance: Monday starts things off with that sprightly revue of optimism called Fuck This Week, there's Rob Gagnon's unpredictable Sandbox on Tuesdays, the all-female comedy showcase called Garage on Wednesdays, check out Trevor Wade's gender-confounding Clownfish this Thursday, and don't miss the inarguable power of Sure Thing hosted by Duncan Carson and Brendan K. O’Grady that happens every Friday night. the storytelling might of Saturday's Sweet Lightning will scratch your deepest narrative itch, and, on Sunday, daaaaaaaamn, it's the triumphant return of Micheal (sic) Foulk and Vanessa Gonzalez as Handbomb!
