More things to do, Saturday, Sept. 24



Shopping

The Fine Goods Pop-Up. Meet local makers and designers and shop their wares at this pop-up, where you’ll also be able to sip on cocktails and enjoy music and treats. Participating vendors — local online business owners who don’t normally have a brick-and-mortar to show off their stuff — include Gem + Tonic, Love Ding, the Distillery Market and more. The complimentary drinks come courtesy of Deep Eddy Vodka and Cat Spring Tea. 4 to 8 p.m. Saturday. Free. The Paper + Craft Pantry, 2511 E. Sixth St. Building A. Unit A. eventbrite.com/e/the-fine-goods-pop-up-tickets-26976142368.

Music

Pachanga Presents the Mavericks at ACL Live. Pachanga mutated from a festival to a series of concerts this year, and they’ve been good ones. The return of Raul Malo’s still-vibrant left-of-center country band with Latin tinges is no exception. One of Austin’s favorite touring acts since the ’90s, the Mavericks have a sound that fits perfectly within our city’s renowned melting-pot musical culture. $35-$49. 8 p.m. Saturday. 310 Willie Nelson Blvd. acl-live.com. — Peter Blackstock

Pecan Street Festival. The 36th annual festival is the largest and longest-running of Texas’ arts & crafts and musical festivals and will have more of the same fun activities. On three different stages each day, the live music will come from the likes of Mindz of a Different Kind, the Night Owls and Conjunto Los Pinkys. Plus, shop among the vendors for everything from pet supplies to jewelry to wine bottle stoppers. 11 a.m. Saturday and Sunday. Free. Sixth Street from Sabine Street to San Jacinto Boulevard.

Family

Austin Diaper Bank’s Family Fun Fest. Help raise funds and awareness for diaper needs in Austin with this afternoon party that will have a variety of kid-friendly activities, including a bounce house, goody bags and giveaways, and live music, as well as the chance to take a photo with Princess Sofia, Snow White, Rapunzel and Sleeping Beauty. Just donate size 4 diapers or larger. Cloth diapers in good condition, as well as a child’s unused leftover diapers, will also be accepted. Noon to 3 p.m. Saturday. Free. Northwest Recreation Center, 2913 Northland Drive. austindiapers.org.

Art

“Painters Painting Painters” at Davis Gallery. Ten Austin-based figure painters are contributing two portraits of other artists in the show, as well as a self-portrait, for this new exhibit at the Davis Gallery. Comparing their approach to the same theme is fascinating, according to the gallery, and emphasizes the wonder of their eccentricities. 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 Nov. 5. 837 W. Twelfth St. davisgalleryaustin.com.
