      Andrew Schulz

      We already used the Silver Surfer bit for Todd Barry's Friday show, didn't we? OK, but now here's Andrew Schulz, the native New Yorker who's known for his unapologetic takes and wild off-the-cuff interactions with the crowd, also in advance of Moontower. Yeah, and his stand-up clips on YouTube have amassed over 252 million views. That's right: amassed. Good thing there's four chances to see him here this weekend, hey?

      Corps Multiple: Seule(s) en Scène

      Three women, but not together. Three women in isolation, witnessed by you, here, as they perform live. This is the new production of multidisciplinary company Corps Multiple, directed by Austin-based French choreographer Sandie Donzica. This original work explores the theme of isolation of the body – the female body – and how isolation is perceived and how it differs from body to body, country to country, culture to culture.

Note: Admission includes two drinks, passed appetizers, dinner, and dessert – and these will be conjured by LeRoy & Lewis BBQ, Mama Fried, Suerte's Fermín Nuñez, Jules Stoddart of Olamaie and Little Ola's, Don and Theo Nguyen of Houston's Khoi BBQ, Matti Bills of Three Six General, Lane Milne and Jalen Heard from Fort Worth's Goldee's BBQ, Birdie's Tracy Malechek-Ezekiel, Austin and Rosemary Ewaldof Spread and Co., and Matthew Bromley's Great Bear Provisions Co.
