More things to do, Saturday, April 15


Dining

Boozy Milkshake Pop-up at Peached Social House. Remember those over-the-top milkshakes from the Peached Tortilla that made a splash at this year’s South by Southwest? They’re returning for a pop-up event at the sister event space, with two new items on the menu, such as the Saturday Morning with strawberry milk ice cream, Fruit Loops, Lucky Charms, Cinnamon Toast Crunch and freshly baked doughnuts. For more savory sustenance, chow down on breakfast sandwiches made on either kolache-dough buns or housemade biscuits. 12 to 3 p.m. Saturday. Free. 6500 N. Lamar Blvd. facebook.com/events/1480284045344713.

Art

“Water: New Works by Malou Flato.” Painter Flato depicts elegant water scenes in her latest series of work, bringing to life both delicate ripples and forceful flow with her distinctive style. She is known for her detailed layering and strong use of color, shifting between light and shadow. Opening reception 7 to 9 p.m. Saturday. 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday-Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday through May 20. Davis Gallery, 837 W. 12th St. davisgalleryaustin.com.

Music

Bob Weir & the Campfire Band at ACL Live. Last year’s release of “Blue Mountain,” a rare solo album from the Grateful Dead founding member, prompted this tour with a backing crew that consists largely of musicians from renowned indie-rock band the National. Guitarist Aaron Dessner and bassist Scott Devendorf, who helped Weir record “Blue Mountain,” are aboard, along with Devendorf’s brother Bryan Devendorf, the National’s drummer. The lineup also includes bassist Jon Shaw, known for his work with Austin’s Shakey Graves, along with Josh Kaufman and Steve Kimock. 7:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. $62.50-$82.50. Willie Nelson Blvd. acl-live.com. — Peter Blackstock

Film

Viva Cinema: “Nora’s Will” at the Bullock Museum.

Because of the approaching Passover, her body must be buried immediately, according to tradition, or the family will have to wait five days. 7 to 9 p.m. Saturday. $3-$5. 1800 Congress Ave. thestoryoftexas.com.
