1. Arthouse is featuring a new exhibit that recreates the Astoria Theater and showcases local musicians rehearsing in the space. The artist, Graham Hudson, has emphasized that the point of the exhibit is to show the creative process of writing music, rather than the completed product. Rehearsals can be seen now through April 10. Click here for more information.
2. Boxing fans have a rare chance to see some up and coming pugilists duke it out in the ring tonight at the Austin Music Hall. George Foreman’s son, who is also named George (along with all of his brothers!), is on the card. For all the details, please click here.
