Moo -stash

Move. Groove. Groom. Your mustache. Stereotyperider headlines Toddy T-Bones’ Fifth Annual Mustache Party on Saturday, April 25, at the Launchpad with Split Hoof (follicly gifted Austin stoner rock) and more hirsute versions of Black Maria, Ends !n Tragedy and DJ Chach. Doors splay open at 8 p.m. No word on cover yet, but people without mustaches may be monetarily punished. There’s no peach fuzz at this party (21+ only). (Laura Marrich)

Sonic Reducer

Phoenix Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix · Silversun Pickups Swoon

The world could use more of many things—truffles, fresh water, flowers, yetis, helium, French pop songs—and thankfully Phoenix, from Versailles, France, will do its part to fill the void by releasing studio album No. 4 in May.

Eternal Recurrence

Holly Rebelle's High School Reunion • Tito Bonito • Mr. Valdez • Mustang Monroe • burlesque, boylesque, variety

That nightmare, again: You're in biology class, trying not to nod off while the teacher drones, and suddenly you notice everyone's gaze focus squarely on you. You're naked, it's test day and you forgot to study. But that's not what's freaking you out. No—it's the plastic jelly bracelets, stirrup pants and side ponytails that cause you to sit up in bed, heart thumping like a '90s boom bap beat. This Saturday, May 26, your dreams are becoming a dayglo-blooded reality at Holly Rebelle's High School Reunion: A Burlesque Tribute to the '90s. The dreaded time machine takes off from the Launchpad at 8pm. Admission is $15 for adults over 21 (anyone younger probably wouldn't get it anyway).
