On Tuesday, celebrate Pi Day, South by Southwest and Peruvian art


Güero’s Taco Bar at SXSW

2 p.m. March 14 to 6 p.m. March 19. Free. 1412 S. Congress Ave. gueros.com.

Want to listen to good live music during South by Southwest but don’t have badges or wristbands to participate in some of the shows? That’s not a problem with the Mexican restaurant Guero’s, which is hosting a series of live music shows in its oak garden through nearly the entire festival. The fun starts on Tuesday with the likes of Ruby & The Reckless, Light Wheel and the Bluebonnets. Future acts include BettySoo, Matt the Electrician, Otis the Destroyer and Joe King Carrasco.

Pi Day Pie Bake-Off at WhichCraft Tap Room & Bottle Shop

7 to 9 p.m. March 14. Free. 1900 Simond Ave. Suite 200. facebook.com/events/1208855105879434.

To celebrate Pi Day, the Mueller location of WhichCraft Beer Store is hosting a pie bake-off that will encourage craft beer lovers to show their sweet side and whip up a pie for some friendly competition. The tasting will start at 7 p.m., and at 7:30 p.m. you can start casting your vote for the winner. Whoever has the best pie will earn a $43.14 gift card to WhichCraft. Even if you aren’t a baker, hang out and enjoy two rare beers: Wicked Weed Brettaberry and Jester King Das Wunderkind.

Georgetown Art Center’s “The Cuzco Revolution in Painting”

10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays-Saturdays, 1 to 5 p.m. Sundays through March 26. 816 South Main St., Georgetown. 512-930-2583, georgetownartcentertx.org.

Associated with Southwestern University’s Brown Symposium, the show features Peruvian artists Richard Peralta and Edwin Quispecuro. Their “The Cuzco Revolution in Painting” revives the lost Cuzco School of Painting — an artistic movement during the Spanish colonial era in the mountainous city of Cuzco in Peru. Peralta’s work addresses the history of political violence in Peru, while Quispecuro’s work reimagines the Virgin as contemporary Andean women.

Toast to mathematics with this Bar Math event. Multiple Little Woodrow’s locations across Austin — excluding the West Sixth spot — will have free pizza from Brooklyn Pie Co. in celebration of Pi Day (while supplies last, so you may want to get there closer to 6 p.m. than 7 p.m.). In addition, Little Woodrow’s Tech Ridge location in North Austin will host a pie-eating contest at 6:30 p.m. with prizes for the winner.
