More events for Wednesday, March 22, and beyond


Art

Curators’ Tour with the Harry Ransom Center. The curators of the current “Stories to Tell: Selections from the Harry Ransom Center” are offering their perspective of the exhibit and the center’s overall collections, which include items from David Foster Wallace, Henri Matisse, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and many more. The center’s rich holdings highlight the struggles, complexity and rewards of creative work in literature, visual art, photography, film and theater. 7 p.m. March 22. Free. 300 W. 21st St. hrc.utexas.edu.

Music

Blink-182 at the Austin360 Amphitheater. The Grammy-nominated pop-punk band will perform at the Circuit of the Americas stage with The Naked and Famous. Blink-182 has become one of the defining rock bands of their generation, a far cry from their humble beginnings 24 years ago in a San Diego garage. Now, Matt Skiba, of Alkaline Trio, is joining the band as singer and guitarist, marking a new chapter for Blink-182 that is well worthy of a tour. 7 p.m. March 22. $19.50-$79.50. 9201 Circuit of the Americas Blvd. austin360amphitheater.com.

Coming up

Esther’s Follies. It’s March Madness this month — with more political hijinks, of course. On a national level, that means taking a closer look at President Trump in his most private hours as the White House continues to reel with leaks, lawsuits and espionage. “White House Hijinks,” the new musical, has a Snuggie-wearing Trump asking himself and his wife (and captive) Melania the tough questions. 8 p.m. Thursdays, 8 and 10 p.m. Fridays-Saturdays in March. $25-$35. 525 E. Sixth St. 512-320-0198, esthersfollies.com.

“All Because of Agatha.” Way Off Broadway Community Players is continuing its 20th season with this ghostly comedy about a newly married couple who buys a house in historic Salem, Massachusetts, which has the annoying knack of being visited each year by a slightly destructive witch named Agatha Forbes. 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday through March 25. $10-$20. 11880 West Old FM 2243, Building 4, Leander. 512-259-5878, wobcp.org.

P. Terry’s Gives Back. Austin’s favorite local burger chain is giving back by donating to AIDS Services of Austin. On March 25, all of the day’s profits at P. Terry’s locations will be given to the nonprofit in support of its mission to build healthy futures for Central Texans. It’s not the first time that P. Terry’s has donated a day’s profits to charity, but it is a good excuse to get yourself a burger combo and shake. 12 p.m. March 25. Free. 7215 Cameron Road. facebook.com/events/616985258487019.

It’s hot and your dogs are wearing fur coats — here’s how to keep them safe

My sweet Ginger, who went over the Rainbow Bridge a few months ago, was a former street dog who would lie down and refuse to move once the temps went above 80 (sometimes 75). Most dogs aren’t that savvy (or lazy). And we humans have been known to put our pets in danger in the heat.  We’re hitting triple-digit temps: ...
