It’s the final night of the Tony and Grammy award winning musical “Chicago,” at the Long Center. Brought to you by Summer Stock Austin and the Long Center, this edgy 1920’s-set satire is full of unforgettable hits.
Summer’s end is nearing, but there are still two Sound & Cinema events remaining. This week, see a tribute performance by the Golden Arkestra, then see “Raiders of the Lost Ark” on the Alamo Drafthouse’s giant iflatable screen.
Celebrate “Tèo Gelato Day,” this Wednesday from 5-7pm with Tèo Gelato founder and gelato maker, Matthew Lee, who will be traveling to Italy to compete in the Gelato World Tour Championships. The party will celebrate his departure with free gelato and gelato cocktails. Don’t forget to enter into the drawing to win a round trip to Italy! The winner will be announced at the party. Get more information on how to enter here.
For the hard rocking Austinites out there, these guys are sure to put on a good show. Get your tickets for their performance at Austin 360 Amphitheater ahead of time, as this one might sell out.
