    Amplify Austin Day

    Looking to do some good for others, citizen? Wish you had more to give than you do? This is the day in which AmplifyATX.org, the online platform that makes it easy to donate to local nonprofits, supercharges their philanthropic site with special matches that will amplify the value of your gift. Amplify Austin Day is the biggest day of giving in Central Texas, raising $102.7 million for the local community since 2013, and this year you can be part of the seven-county crowd spreading funds (and, consequently, joy) across our river city. – Wayne Alan Brenner

    Sleater-Kinney, Black Belt Eagle Scout

    Trading agile punk for measured, electronic alternative, Sleater-Kinney’s second act hasn’t always stuck the landing. On fourth post-reunion album Little Rope, however, Corin Tucker and Carrie Brownstein find their footing. Rumbling like The Woods with a modern finish, the duo keeps recent experiments in synths, but brings back the angular guitar lines we’ve all missed. Brownstein sends up depression with a smirk in “Don’t Feel Right,” while Tucker, still an inimitably playful vocalist, leads “Small Finds” with both a winking sigh and an assured caterwaul. Opener Katherine Paul soundtracks her indigenous experience in indie rock project Black Belt Eagle Scout. – Carys Anderson

    Thin Spaces: Seeking Nature’s Ethereal Conduits

    This three-person show of visual art at the venerable Dougherty Arts Center suggests ways in which “the natural world can serve as a conduit to a deeper understanding of the ethereal,” divulging liminal places where material and spirit intertwine. Local and simultaneously beyond locale, the layered oil abstractions of Rebecca Bennett, the stunningly manipulated photography of Leslie Kell, and Elena Lipkowski’s digital collages embellished with hand-stitched embroidery shift the gallery’s walls toward wonder and may open your doors of perception into a realm that’s downright seelie. Bonus: Meet the artists there tonight, 7-9pm. – Wayne Alan Brenner

    Twilight Trivia

    Twilight trivia? Where the hell have you been, loca?! The pop culture vultures over at Get It Games return with a two-hour quiz based on the 2008 film that kick-started a years-long sensation, and the questions write themselves: How long have you been 17? Which indie rock band sings this soundtrack song? How did Taylor Lautner get away with playing a Native American for so long? Host the Brewtorium offers a themed menu, and costumes are encouraged. Say it out loud: You know you want to go. – Carys Anderson
