It’s almost time for Austin City Limits, which means we reap some of the benefits.
For example, prior to Friday night’s concert in Austin, Wild Belle plays at the House of Blues. The brother and sister duo just released a debut record, Isles, after the single “Keep You” proved popular. Personally, I like “It’s Too Late” and “When It’s Over.” Actually, I like the whole album, which doesn’t happen all that often. Check them out here. You can still get tickets online via the House of Blues’ website. Saint Rich opens.
Also tonight, the Angelika Film Center begins Hitchcocktober. Every Thursday in October, the theater will screen one of Alfred Hitchcock’s films on a big screen outside on the mezzanine. This evening, you can catch The Birds, his 1963 horror story about a wealthy California socialite and a series of increasingly violent, unexplained bird attacks. I dislike birds already, so this one has always struck me as especially terrifying. (On FrontRow, Jason called it one of Hitchcock’s most overrated movies.) If you consider yourself a true Hitchcock expert, you can participate in trivia for the chance to win prizes.
Finally, the Dallas Arboretum continues its fall concert series tonight with Texas country music artist Max Stalling. If you arrive early, you and the brood can take a tour through the Rory Meyer’s Children’s Adventure Garden at no extra cost. The new garden’s extra hours are 5 p.m.-7 p.m., right up until the concert begins.
