Things to do Monday, July 25


Theater

“The Steadfast Tin Soldier.” From the creative minds of Allen Robertson and Damon Brown of the “Biscuit Brothers” band comes a brand-new family-friendly musical based on the classic fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen. Opens Monday. Multiple shows through Aug. 13. Rollins Studio Theater, Long Center, 701 W. Riverside Drive. $12. 512-474-5664, thelongcenter.org. — Jeanne Claire van Ryzin

Music

Emily King at Parish. With a silky voice, stylish sophistication and an expansive aesthetic, King’s music is well-suited to this era of soulful fusion. The progeny of a jazz singing-duo, King grew up in New York immersed in the city’s vibrant music scene. Her 2015 album “The Switch” was a collection of sweeping emotional declarations, graceful meditations and surprisingly funky grooves. With the 2016 release of a new deluxe edition of the album, her career is taking flight and this is likely your last chance to catch her in such a small venue. PJ Morton opens. $16. 7 p.m. doors Monday. 214 E. Sixth St. parishaustin.com — Deborah Sengupta Stith

Art

Lisa Brawn at Yard Dog Art Gallery. Brawn’s “¿Quién Es Más Macho? Wes Anderson vs. the Wild Birds of Texas” is on view for one more weekend this month, so don’t miss the colorful pieces of this returning Calgary artist. She has set up carved and painted woodcut portraits of Wes Anderson movie characters and birds of Texas in playful showdowns. Each of the pieces are eye-catching on their own, but you’ll be lured in by the idea of these fun unlikely match-ups. 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday through July 31. 1510 S. Congress Ave. 512-912-1613, yarddog.com.

History

“Vietnam: Evidence of War” at the LBJ Presidential Library. It’s the last week to check out this exhibit, which explores how the Vietnam War and its legacy were experienced. The exhibit showcases an impressive array of sources: soldiers and veterans, politicians and constituents, reporters and photojournalists, and advocates and protesters. 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily through July 31. $3-$8. 2313 Red River St.lbjlibrary.org/exhibits/vietnam-evidence-of-war.

Dining

De La Terre dinner series. Two Austin chefs from the Uchi and Odd Duck restaurant groups, Lori Bergeron and Anthony Nicaj, are offering a dinner series every other Monday. A ticket gets you a 10- to 12-course tasting menu, featuring local produce, foraged ingredients, and homemade pastas, bread and cheese. The menu, paired with beer or wine depending on the ticket option you choose, will change out regularly. 7 p.m. Monday. $97.43-$119.75. Foreign & Domestic, 306 E. 53rd St. 512-653-9535, delaterre.squarespace.com.

Coming up

Rattle Inn’s 4 Year Anniversary. In celebration, the bar will be hosting special live entertainment from DJ Fideo, Chandler and the Bings, and the Mighty Beast starting at 6 p.m. Guests can enjoy free Gus’ Fried Chicken and candy from the self-serve candy bar, as well as endless drink specials all night. The first 50 guests to arrive will also receive a Rattle Inn swag bag. 5 p.m. doors Thursday. Free. 600 Nueces St. rattleinnaustin.com.
