January 23rd – January 30th Edition
It’s time for the weekend itinerary, our top picks for the best in Austin entertainment, music, food, and events. This week we recommend…
Welcome to Austin, Karbach Brewing Co!: On January 23rd at 6PM, Banger’s will host one of the three fasted growing craft breweries in the United States. This party is one of their kickoff events in Austin and it marks the beginning of Karbach’s distribution in Austin. Bangers will tap several of Karbach’s rare brews, such as the 007 (Bourbon Barrel aged Hellfighter aged in Four Roses or Maker’s Mark Barrels), and the Double Dry Hopped Rodeo Clown. Of course, the brewery’s three flagship beers (Sympathy for the Lager, Weekend Warrior Pale, and Hopadillo IPA) will also be flowing freely too.
Announced via an instagram from @flattrackcoffee, Friday’s art showcase looks to be a combination of everything we love in Austin – featuring a live performance by the soulful Shakey Graves, food from Easy Tiger, coffee from Flat Track, beer from Austin Beerworks, and cocktails from Weather Up. It’s probably not too early to start lining up outside the Billy Reid on 6th St. Food starts at 6pm, music and drinks start at 8pm.
The Austin-based garage rock band returns Friday, January 24 to the Continental Club. The four piece’s latest album, “Arrow,” has been considered the band’s most eclectic and energetic compilation that has brought new creativity to their live shows. Come see the band that do512 has called, “the meanest-sounding, female-fronted dirty blues band in America.” Hundred Visions open at 10pm, with The Heartless Bastards hitting the stage at midnight.

Iron Chef host, Alton Brown, makes a stop in Austin on his “Edible Inevitable Tour,” Wednesday, January 29 at Austin City Limits Live. Alton Brown delights audiences with his offbeat humor and culinary-science antics. The show blends stand up comedy, food experimentation, talk show antics, multimedia lecture, and (to the delight of us Austinites) live music. It’s an experience like no other, and will entertain adults and children alike.
January 24 – February 2
The psychedelic kaleidoscope experience returns to the Long Center, from January 24-February 2, with a brand new lumnarium, Miracoco. Miracoco’s Centre Dome is grander than any of the previous domes built and exhibited, which have toured 40 countries and boast more than two million visitors. The structure’s spiral lattices are reminiscent of the Lotus Temple of India, giving off an impressive show of lights that is unforgettable.
