    Blue Lapis Light: Edge of Grace

    Every year, Blue Lapis Light produces at least one big performance that showcases aerial techniques informed by classical, interpretive, and modern dance. It's a show in which light and sound engineers manipulate the sensory environment to create an immersive experience spotlighting the kinetic wonders that weave embodied patterns above your head, interacting on a multilevel scaffolding structure. This year they're sharing this main event from their home base: The annual BLL dance production takes place outside, on the company's three-acre property in south Austin. Edge of Grace is about exploring spaces between edges, the amazing movements inspired by how grace manifests in human lives.
    Oct. 14-24. Thu.-Sun., 8pm. $25-50.

    Desert Door Sotol: WILD Meal Series

    Desert Door Sotol presents its first Wild event series of three custom-curated meals and experiences in the wilderness at Spoke Hollow Ranch in Wimberley. Yes, that’s a three-course meal – either a brunch or dinner selection – prepared by three distinguished Austin chefs (Julien Hawkins of Hestia, Amanda Turner of The Fiery Talon, and Contigo’s Ty Burton), and the dishes will be paired with signature Desert Door cocktails, all in a breathtaking landscape under the big Texas sky. Oh, and there's even more to it! Suggestion: Check that website ASAP to see if tickets are still available.
    Fri.-Sat., Oct. 15-16. $135.

    Guthrie Girls & the Stage Door Johnnies

    DNA strands in grinning lineage of American folk, the Guthrie Girls have been enlivening hump-day nights at South Austin honky-dive Sam’s Town Point. Daughters of Arlo and granddaughters of Woody, Sarah Lee strums guitar and sings, while sister Kathy (of Folk Uke fame) supplements delightfully on the mic. Their sweet singing, evidenced by a cover of Gordon Lightfoot’s “Sundown,” is only upstaged by the smiling vibe they cultivate. Fronting a cowboy/hippie/bar-band, grandpa’s “I Ain’t Got No Home in This World Anymore” becomes two-step dance fodder, while “Hobo’s Lullaby” emits momentous compassion.
