    When the stress of the holidays starts to get you down, it's time for Festivus, a rollicking variety show of music, dance and humor! Paul Klemperer & The Festivians perform classic jazz, blues and soul music, featuring vocalists Joanna Ramirez, Julie Slim and other special guests.

    Davis Gallery: Looking Out, Looking In

    This is an extensive group exhibit focused on the personal philosophies of premiere Austin and Central Texas artists. Sacred geometry, the importance of family, life and death, our connection to Nature, and spirituality are among the perspectives that the artists (Randall Reid, Sam Yeates, Jan Heaton, Faustinus Deraet, David Leonard, Denise Fulton, and John Sager, among others) have focused on. What a fine follow-up to that excellent "Lone Star Wild" show, and what a glorious way to bid 2019 farewell!
    Reception: Sat., Dec. 7, 7-9pm
