"FRIENDS" QUIZ! Test your Ross and Rachel knowledge!

Are you an expert in the art of Unagi? Do you refuse to share food? Is your favorite Elton John song that one about Tony Danza? Come find your lobster at the 4th edition of “The One Where Poor People Live Comfortably in Manhattan: A Friends Quiz” on Saturday, July 20th.

The quiz will cover all ten seasons and 236 episodes about the lives of the Central Perk’s best customers. While we won't ask you a significant number of questions about the actors’ side projects, spinoffs, or reunion specials, we continue to reserve the right to ask you about anything and everything “Friends”-related in Round Eight. We'd say get to watching, but we know you're already five seasons deep in your 30th rewatch.

The quiz is $5 per player and the winners will take home a cash prize large enough to buy tickets to see Hootie and the Blowfish and then some. The more players, the larger the cash pot, so invite your annoying exes, clothing-challenged neighbors, and twins (hand or otherwise). General Geeks Who Drink rules will apply. You’re limited to 6 total players on your team and we're quzzing like its the ‘90s. Use of any cell phones or any other outside assistance is strictly prohibitted.

Registration for this quiz is REQUIRED! Head on over to http://bit.ly/GWDFriendsReg to register your team.

#DTFixDating Game at Highball Game Night

February 6, 20189:00pm - 9:30pmFREE!

#DTFixDating Game at Highball Game Night

Social media got you down? Sprained your swipe finger? Friend, we have a remedy: OkCupid’s #DTFixDating Game at HIGHBALL GAME NIGHT!

Every Tuesday night, bond with people (in real life) as we connect you using OkCupid’s questions as our dating compass—and then send you on a date. On the house. It’s like the classic Dating Game meets Cards Against Humanity meets, well, 2018.

At 9PM, we will be inviting singles up on stage. Up to 5 guys on one side of the stage, and up to 5 girls on the other side of the stage (we will also be doing rounds for everyone in the LGBTQ+ community). Then it's time to find your perfect connection! Each single will be asked a series of questions based on actual OkCupid profile building questions. We'll tally up the scores, and find out which couple is the most compatible! We'll set the winning couple up to go out on a real world date - all we ask is that you record the footage and send it back to us!

What are you waiting for? The time is now (actually, Tuesday nights) to unplug from your digital dystopia and have some fun with friends in the moment.

3 Chord Rodeo

 3 Chord Rodeo is an Austin band with deep roots in vintage country music. The band members are all veterans of the Austin, Nashville and California music scenes. We perform regularly on the dance hall and club circuit of Central and South Texas including  venues like The Broken Spoke, The Saxon Pub, Mercer Street Dance Hall, Guero’s Taco Bar Oak Garden, Bangers Sausage House and Beer Garden, The Little Longhorn Saloon, The Watering Hole Saloon (New Braunfels),  Kendalia Halle, The Roundup Outdoor Music Venue (Boerne), Western Edge (Fredericksberg), and Leon Springs (San Antonio). We also keep very busy performing at weddings, private parties and corporate events, and can provide references upon request. 


The band was created in 2012 by long-time Austin friends and musicians Bobby Dabbs (lead guitar) and Greg Scarborough (bass guitar and vocals). California native Lauren Ellis (steel, lead guitar and vocals) joined the band shortly after moving to Austin from Nashville, where she toured with Rita Coolidge, Rosie Flores, Rick Trevino and former Monkee Peter Tork.Rounding out the band is Austin, Texas native Bill Mansell (drums.) Bill has performed with Jubal Clark (Willie’s Picnic ‘79), Bill Carter, The Desires, The Lift, Lou Ann Barton, the Argyles, and Jake Penrod.  In addition, Nashville sideman and Austin resident, Brent Wilson (rhythm guitar) sometimes joins us on stage. Brent’s resume includes appearances on the Grand Ole Opry and working with such country music legends as Johnny Bush, Charlie Louvin and Austin’s Wagoneers. You never know who may drop in; Earl Poole Ball (piano) and Jon Kemppainen (fiddle) are also regular guest performers.

90's PROM WITH ZOODUST!

Y'all want more proms, YOU'RE GETTING MORE PROMS! 

Join everyone's favorite 90's tribute band in an AMAZING night of prom-y goodness! A fully decorated Highball, a photobooth for you to pose with your high school sweethearts, and one lucky pair will be crowned prom king and queen!

Zoodust is a 90's Cover Band based out of Austin, TX that plays a grand majority of top Alternative Rock hits from the 90's including bands such as Third Eye Blind, Fastball, Barenaked Ladies, Oasis, Sugar Ray, Sublime and Weezer (just to name a few). “The Z” was forged in 2009, by an incredibly music-savvy group of artists; each of which has extensively toured on a national level. After scoping out the local competition, it became apparent that the surrounding Austin area was in need of a more realistic 90's Cover Band. With that knowledge, Craig Dacy, Dean Barry, Adam Hovey and Mike Blackmon decided to set a new standard for cover bands. They have set out to create a realistic concert experience for the audience. Zoodust puts on a show just like the original bands would have, with no backing-tracks, and one-hundred percent live performance and instruments. They pride themselves in providing excellent crowd interaction, sing-a-longs, and banter that will keep everyone laughing and dancing in a surreal flashback to the not so distant past that is the 90's.

With a majority of the group hailing from a nationally known band, Riot Like Words, Michael Blackmon, a booming studio drummer in the Austin area, Craig Dacy, with the voice of an angel, and Adam Hovey with guitar shredding skills that bring comparisons to Stevie Ray, or Hendrix. The final step was finding a capable second vocalist 'slash' guitarist that would be the puzzle piece to complete Zoodust. Dean Danger, the lead vocalist of rising bands The Artillery and Discover You, and a close friend to the other Zoodust members, would be the one to fill that void.

The Z has now set out to give Central Texas exactly what they have been waiting for: A Metaphoric Time-Machine... ZOODUST!

Alien Knife Fight

March 12, 201610:30pm - 11:15pmFREE

Alien Knife Fight

Alien Knife Fight are a creative duo based in the small junction town of Creedmoor, Texas (population 202). They work from their home studio, Big Bottom Farm, at all hours, creating their unique sound. Monique's powerful, punch in the gut vocals and grinding slide & fretless chops, backed by Mike's primal beats, are frequently described by fans and bloggers as "Slide Punk", and "Gothic Blues". Over the years, Monique's voice has drawn comparisons to Patti Smith, Nina Simone, and Robert Plant among other greats. 

A fine art graduate of Pennsylvania College Of Art, Monique Ortiz arrived in Austin after nearly 15 years of collaborating with some of Boston's most notable players ( A.K.A.C.O.D. with Morphine saxophonist Dana Colley and Binary System drummer Larry Dersch. And Bourbon Princess with original Morphine drummer Jerome Deupree, guitarist Jim Moran, and Either/Orchestra band leader and saxophonist Russ Gershon). 

After a year in Austin she met Michael Howard, a bassist, drummer, and producer. With Mike coming from more of a metal, hard rock background, and Monique having grown up with new wave and post punk, the two began creating tom-heavy, bass-driven music that is as much a nod to the desert rock of QOTSA, as it is to punk innovators Wire.

Each round, one player asks a question from a black card, and everyone else answers with their funniest white card. 

Do I win anything? 
YES! The winner of each game of CAH at their particular table wins a pass to the Alamo Drafthouse! 

But I want to win MORE! 
You got it! Simply take pictures of your best (and worst) combinations and rweet them to '@highballaustin' during the game! The funniest combos picked by our host will get a GRAND PRIZE each night!

ANNIVERSARY WEEK: Motown Monday - The Nightowls

August 10, 201511:00pm - 11:59pmFREE

ANNIVERSARY WEEK: Motown Monday - The Nightowls

It's ANNIVERSARY WEEK! 365 days of celebrating our year of bliss with this gorgeous new venue! And of course, we can't do that without The Nightowls! A Highball staple! 

Founded in 2011 by frontman and lead singer Ryan Harkrider, the Nightowls—all ten of them—have been spreading that sound all over Texas ever since, while perfecting arrangements of the nine Harkrider compositions contained on GOOD AS GOLD.

When they were ready to record, they turned to award-winning Austin guitarist and producer Jake Langley, famed for his work with legends Roberta Flack and Bobby Blue Bland. Langley helped them create a feel that’s both retro and fresh—and sounds like a journey through 50 years of R&B history, without a hint of pastiche.

The first five songs represent the Nightowls’ progressive “mod-soul”; the next three evoke more classic Motown textures. The closer is an eight-minute epic titled “Blood Run Cold.”

It’s no accident that one of those middle tracks, “You Don’t Have to Worry (I’ll Be There),” references a Jackson 5 hit in its title; with sweet harmonies by singers Tara Williamson and Ellie Carroll, the spirit of that elemental soul band jumps to life. The pleading ballad “I’m Sorry Baby” finds the Nightowls channeling Smokey Robinson & the Miracles. “Nice to Know You,” a heart-wrenching tale, stretches beyond convention with xylophone and electric sitar. “Break My Heart Tonight,” the album’s opener, contains a groove so infectious, it could pull even the grouchiest soul onto the dance floor. And in the upbeat, optimistic title track, the Nightowls convey their dedication, perseverance and above all, passion.

Hailing from all over the map geographically and musically, the Nightowls claim terrain from New England to Arizona and influences from Americana to funk. Bassist Rob Alton was trained at Berklee College of Music; other bandmates honed their skills in dive bars. Together, they push R&B’s boundaries while staying true to its horn- and harmony-laden heart—and soul.

Though they’ve been together only two years, the Nightowls’ combined chemistry so strong, it’s as if they bonded like glue at Motown’s famed charm school and stayed united ever since. The evidence may not be hanging in a frame (yet), but the Nightowls know their groove is GOOD AS GOLD.

ANNIVERSARY WEEK: Tittie Bingo

ANNIVERSARY WEEK: Tittie Bingo

Porn without the sex. Bingo without the grandmas. You do the math.

WTF is Tittie Bingo? Well, we recommend that you find out by actually attending, but here’s a preview of what to expect.

Tittie Bingo consists of several rounds of regular bingo as well as one round that correlates to an edited porn parody. Legally, we can’t show certain, uhhhh, ACTS on the hallowed, historic Highball screen, but we can show you just how ridiculously entertaining porn can be… especially when you take the sex out of it. Once a player has gotten bingo on his/her card, the player must shout “Tittie Bingo!” loud and proud. The first two players to win a round must then compete in a very special activity on our stage. Here’s some examples of the amusement that awaits you when you compete in Tittie Bingo!

Tittie Bingo is for adults and grownup children. Do not try this at home.

Hosted by The Action Pack's Mason Scheer and Keith Ruckus

==================================

In a world where themed quizzes only cover one franchise or TV show, one quiz dares to be different. From the company who brought you some other quizzes you liked, it’s “At Least We’ll Have a Host: An Oscars Quiz” coming February 21st.

This is our first trip down the red carpet, so anything and everything Oscars is fair game. Expect questions about the ceremony itself, winners, losers, and the content of the films themselves. Don’t come in expecting 64 questions on who won this or that, you’ll be disappointed. There’s 91 years worth of cinema to study, so good luck.

Admission is $5 per person with the top teams taking home a cash prize. You might feel like the king of the world after winning, but please, no speeches. Your team is limited to 6 total players, and use of your cell phone, or any other aids, is strictly prohibited during the quiz. Cheaters will be disqualified faster than the Academy nominates a Meryl Streep performance.

On Saturday, May 2nd, Geeks Who Drink Pub Quizzes will celebrate Free Comic Book Day and the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron with Awesome Mix Vol. 2: A Marvel Quiz! Join us at The Highball and make sure to arrive early since this quiz has 1000% more Guardians of the Galaxy than last time.

The majority of our quiz will cover the Marvel Cinematic Universe and a smattering of the associated TV shows. True Believers know that means the 3 Iron Man flicks, The Incredible Hulk, both Thor and Captain American movies, The Avengers and, of course, Guardians of the Galaxy. Agents of Shield and Agent Carter are also fair game. What about the comic books? We have to separate the contenders from the pretenders, so bring a friend who can tell the difference between a Kree and a Skrull.

Admission is $5 per person and the more quizzers we have the bigger the prizes! Last year we gave away nearly $4000 at our Avengers quizzes nationwide. You might want to come prepared with more than one team name though."I Am Star Lord's Father" will likely go fast.

Wink Wink, Nudge Nudge.  

Each night features one round dedicated to an "adult re-imagined parody". Wink Wink, Nudge Nudge, Finger Poke in Circle. Edited to take out all the sex, leaving only the best part: the plot! From classic TV shows like I Love Lucy, the heartfelt dramas like Dirty Dancing, or beloved childhood classics like The Smurfs, nothing is off-limits and ripe for parody!

Tonight's featured parody - The Twilight Zone XXX!

BASTARD SONS OF JOHNNY CASH

April 2, 20158:00pm - 11:00pm$5 COVER

BASTARD SONS OF JOHNNY CASH

Described by Rolling Stone as "pure Americana heart and soul," Bastard Sons of Johnny Cash are the voice and vision of songwriter Mark Stuart. Since forming the band in 1995, he's performed with most every major artist in the Country and Americana music community. Stuart was personally given permission to use the band's name by Johnny Cash himself.

He was also honored by the Man in Black with an invitation to record songs at Cash's own home in Hendersonville, Tennessee. Two other iconic music legends, Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard, were also early believers who were instrumental in helping Stuart get his start.

With the release of their critically acclaimed debut CD "Walk Alone" in 1999, the Bastard Sons quickly proved they were no novelty act. With strong songwriting and great musicianship, the Sons' quickly jumped to the forefront of the growing Alternative Country Scene. No stranger to the road, their constant touring and hard work have built the band a loyal grass roots following both in the States and abroad.

Whether performing in front of thousands at a Festival in the US or Europe, or playing all night in a Texas dance hall, for Stuart it’s all about respect. "The Bastard Sons never were, and never will be, a Johnny Cash tribute band."  It's always been about honoring the musical ideals of our heroes, and paying respect to the originality, integrity, and independence that made those artists who they are. Our goal was always to find our own road, and to continue to keep the sounds and traditions of American Roots Music alive.

Blues at the 'Ball

Get your blues fix at The Highball with Austin's one and only Nakia!

You'll shake, dance, shout, and groove with the band on Austin's finest dancefloor. Enjoy award-winning cocktails and tasty bites from the bar. Free parking and free admission. 

About Nakia: 
Before he was on "The Voice," Nakia was a Blues Grifter. Named for the age-old concept of stealing from the greats, the Blues Grifters formed in 2010. The band quickly became a hit on the club circuit in Austin performing at the legendary "Home of the Blues," Antone’s Nightclub, and the South Austin hot spot, C-Boy’s Heart & Soul and began recording its first album. A video of Nakia's full-throated, soulful performances found its way to television producer Mark Burnett who insisted on recruiting Nakia for a new show. Reluctant but hopeful, Nakia put the band, and the album on pause to go to Hollywood. 
On the first season of "The Voice," Nakia immediately became a fan favorite before finishing as a semifinalist. More than 14 million viewers tuned in each week to witness Nakia wowing the show's four celebrity coaches with his electric stage presence and using his gritty voice to make Top 40 songs his own. 

Using the momentum from the whirlwind of reality TV, Nakia focused on writing songs for a new EP and subsequent tour, still leaving the band on hold. Nakia knew it was time to call up the Blues Grifters again when he was invited to appear on the ALL ATX compilation album in 2016. Together, they transformed The Allman Brothers Band's “Whipping Post” from a prog-rocking guitar dirge into a lowdown gritty sax-infused soul jam that culminates in a double time frenzy.  Renewed from that studio experience, Nakia was ready to finish the album he started almost a decade ago with his long-time collaborator and fellow Grifter, Mac McNabb.
“I started the band as a way for me to cut loose and get lost in the blues, so I wanted this album to be a homage to the great blues artists who inspired me," Nakia recalls, "but ‘The Voice’ happened and I couldn't reach the finish line on the record. Once Mac and I got back together and listened to the tapes, we committed to finish the album. We cut these songs using old ribbon mics, analog gear and tape machines. Many of the songs recorded live, all in the room together. Real live blues -- the way it was meant to be."

After all that time, “Blues Grifter,” was finished and released in August 2017, featuring songs by blues and soul greats Otis Rush, William Bell, Johnnie Taylor, Howlin' Wolf, Luther "Snakeboy" Johnson and more. Nakia will donate a portion of all “Blues Grifter” album proceeds to The Clifford Antone Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit in Austin, Texas dedicated to preserving blues music culture and community by caring for our elders and investing in our youth. Nakia is a two-time Black Fret artist grant award recipient.

CAPTURED! BY ROBOTS

CAPTURED! BY ROBOTS

Featuring opening act Concrete Robot!

Two kick ass robots, one stupid human. Brutal pummeling music. End of story. But you wanna read more stupid crap? Ok, idiot human. C!BR has been touring the world since 1997, playing thousands of dive bars for millions of drunk humans.

In 1996, Jay Vance made the robots because he was extremely unlikeable, and wanted to play in a band after all his past human bands hated him. He got to work. Shortly after, GTRBOT666 and DRMBOT 0110 were born. After a horrible accident involving many drugs and a chemical spill, the Bots became self aware and captured the human, now renamed JBOT. It was decided that they would travel the country, rocking out while bent on world domination and humiliating the masked and chained idiotic human in front of his human peers.

In 2013, a critical point was achieved in robotic/human symbiosis. The Bots over went their sixth upgrade, developing human faces in an attempt to fool the pathetic humans into lowering their guard, not unlike decoys in duck hunting. Humans are now the hunted! Hahaha!

As well, JBOT’s chains and mask were removed, after 15 years of captivity the chains were no longer needed as they were now chains of the mind, and removal of the mask serves to show how ugly and disgusting the human JBOT really is. The Bots and JBOT’s relationship has changed, now they are much more united in hating humanity. Stockholm Syndrome? Maybe… Or maybe you all just suck really really bad. C!BR’s newly found united aggression towards humanity has been channeled into fast n loud music, designed to deafen and destroy, to pound and pummel, breaking your bones with brutal tones.

So that’s it. End of story for reals. But one more thing…

Fuck you, human!

CARDS AGAINST HIGHBALL (21+ at 9:00PM)

February 17, 20158:00pm - 9:50pmFREE!

CARDS AGAINST HIGHBALL (21+ at 9:00PM)

PLEASE NOTE: The Highball is 21+ at 9:00pm on Tuesdays.

We're thrilled to bring you CARDS AGAINST HIGHBALL! Our own Cards Against Humanity night with a HIGHBALL twist - and of course filled with all sorts of depraved humor! 

What is CAH? 
Cards Against Humanity is a party game for horrible people. Unlike most of the party games you've played before, Cards Against Humanity is as despicable and awkward as you and your friends. The game is simple. Each round, one player asks a question from a black card, and everyone else answers with their funniest white card. 

Do I win anything? 
YES! The winner of each game of CAH at their particular table wins a pass to the Alamo Drafthouse!

Do I need to bring a full team to play?
Of course not! Any size group can play! We highly encourage making friends with strangers and joining up to create bigger teams. It's more fun that way!

But I want to win MORE! 
You got it! Simply take pictures of your best (and worst) combinations and rweet them to '@highballaustin' during the game! The funniest combos picked by our host will get a GRAND PRIZE each night!

CAROLYN MARTIN

Some folks may not be too familiar with Western Swing, but more than one knowledgeable observer has described Western Swing as "Big band jazz, with fiddle and steel instead of trumpets and saxes".  Western Swing is a style of music that was born in Texas, matured in Oklahoma during the 1930s and California during the war years and became popular throughout the United States in the 1950's. It's an amalgamation of the music of the big band era, blues, dixieland and the popular songs of the 20's, 30's and 40's combined with the ethnic styles of Mexican, Czech, German and Appalachian music.

Carolyn, a 2011 inductee into the Texas Western Swing Hall Of Fame, joined the Northwest Western Swing Music Society’s Hall of Fame in 2014 and will join the Western Swing Society of the Southwest’s Hall of Fame in 2015. The Cowtown Society of Western Music named Carolyn a “Hero of Western Swing” in 2014. 
She was the recipient of the Academy of Western Artists’ Will Rogers award as the Western Swing Female Vocalist of the Year in 2008, 2010, and 2014.

Carolyn Martin has been described as “an astonishing singer”, “a remarkable voice”, a “singing sensation” and as “one of the finest western swing singers in the business, the dreamy-voiced Carolyn Martin.” The Riders In The Sky’s Ranger Doug says,  “I have grown increasingly in awe of Carolyn’s talent: her taste, her musical sensibility, the thoughtfulness and care she brings to every line of every song she sings,” and Vince Gill says simply, “Carolyn Martin is a great swing singer.” From her early days playing Texas dance halls and honky-tonks through 11 years she spent as a member of the Grammy nominated Time Jumpers to her current tours with Carolyn Martin’s Swing Band, Carolyn’s live shows have always aimed to deliver what Ft. Worth Magazine called “a jaw dropping performance.” 

Carolyn’s recordings have won accolades – among them, Western Swing Album of the Year and Western Swing Song of the Year. Each of Carolyn’s last four CD’s spent months at the top of Western Way Magazine’s Western Swing Chart. Her latest CD, “A Platter Of Brownies: The Music of Milton Brown” pays homage to the Father of Western Swing, Milton Brown. Brown, along with his band the Musical Brownies, was a seminal figure in the development of what we now know as western swing.

More information about Carolyn is available from her website, www.carolynmartinmusic.com as well as her Reverbnation EPK:http://www.reverbnation.com/rpk/carolynmartin Some videos of Carolyn can be viewed at: http://gwjv6nq.populr.me/carolyn-martin Carolyn's Facebook page can be found at: www.facebook.com/carolynmartinmusic

CHASCA: GLAM BAND

Glammed out alternative rock with a healthy dose of Rocky Horror dramatics and devil-horned power chords! We are Chasca. We are the ones your parents warned you about.

Chasca is a five-piece rock band based in San Marcos, Texas, who have recently emerged from The Bubble Studio in Austin, Texas, where they recorded their debut EP “Bedtime For Bedlamites” with uber producer and mad scientist Chris “Frenchie” Smith (Built To Spill, Dandy Warhols, Jet, Meat Puppets, Trail of Dead – just to name a few), who’s also known as the guitarist and mastermind of 16 Deluxe and Young Heart Attack.

COME AND SING IT: The Highball's Ultimate Karaoke Tournament

The Highball is bringing back our Karaoke Tournament to end all others! Come see Austinites battle it out with their vocal chords in an attempt to win big! COME AND SING IT is the arena! A three stage competition celebrating the creativity and variety of Austin’s insane karaoke community and offering big cash money and gift card-y rewards!

This time we're THEMED to bring you a special Valentine's Day edition of the show! 

To get to the money you've got to make it through three rounds of karaoke bloodsport. Here’s how it works:  

Round One: The Comfort Zone
Round One features each contestant singing the first minute or so of their choice of karaoke songs. The perfect opportunity for displaying costumes, skits and good old fashioned singing talent. Please have your song picked WELL in advance. No perusing the day of. 

Round Two: The Wheel of Audio Death
Contestants that make it to Round Two spin the WHEEL OF AUDIO DEATH and get stuck with the karaoke favorite it lands on. We’re not monsters so there’s no impossible or obscure songs, but there’s still no take-backsies -- contestants are stuck with whatever the wheel lands on. Don't know the song? EVEN BETTER

Round Three: The Showstopper
See the last standing competitors sing an entire song of their choice! 

What's the prizes?
Good stuff. We’re offering big prizes:
Third place: a $30 gift card to The Alamo Drafthouse
Second place: a $50 gift card to The Alamo Drafthouse
First place: $200 cash!

How do we decide a winner?
We’re enlisting three expert judges who’ll determine your fate. They’re (mostly) incorruptible, but they can be swayed by a cheering crowd so bring your peoples to make some noise. Head’s up: this competition is only open to individuals. Duets or group singing aren’t allowed, but if you need another human onstage with you as part of your act we’ll roll with that (within reason).

How do we sign up?
Sign up below. Slots to compete are first come, first serve, but we reserve the right to be selective in who makes it to the show. If you're interested in competing, you MUST submit your info via the form (we're not planning to take sign ups at the event).  We'll then confirm with you in a day or two - and let you know if you're in the tournament and where to be and when.

(Trust us -- this is one to catch on the big screen.)

About the Show
Based on the hit graphic novel by Rick Remender and Wes Craig, and executive produced by the Russo Brothers (Avengers: Infinity War), DEADLY CLASS follows Marcus, a disillusioned teen recruited into an elite private academy where the world’s top crime families send their successors. Maintaining his moral code while navigating a ruthless curriculum, vicious social cliques, and his own adolescent uncertainties may prove fatal. Set against the backdrop of late 80s counter culture, DEADLY CLASS is a coming of age story unlike anything you’ve ever seen.

5:00pm – Pre-Reception in The Highball
7:00pm – DEADLY CLASS Premiere Screening Event at Alamo South Lamar

Don't Cross the Streams: A Ghostbusters Quiz

We came, we saw, we quizzed its ass, and now we're ready to unleash eight rounds worth of interrogative ectoplasm on you devotees of the greatest cinematic duology of all time. If you pray before a handmade Bill Murray shrine each night before bed and greet each blind date with the words "Are you the Keymaster?", this quiz is for you. 'Cause bustin' makes you feel good.

On Saturday, October 25th, just in time for Halloween and the 30th anniversary of the year that was 1984, we're bringing our first-ever Ghostbusters quiz to select cities across the country. Check below for venues and times and make sure to arrive early, because we expect this one to be more packed than a party at Louis Tully's place.

Cheaters will be heavily sedated and thrown into a lake of pink, angsty goo. That means no Internet devices during the quiz, so get all your IMDb scouring in while you still can. We can't promise we won't ask about "The Real Ghostbusters" and those comic books too, because we're ruthless like that.

Admission is $5 per person, so bring what you would have spent on half a ticket to Ghostbusters III and put your team in the running for a big, fancy cash prize. We'll even give you room for six team members (teammates possessed by Sumerian demigods totally count as two people). The more quizzers we have, the bigger the prizes! You might want to come prepared with more than one team name, though, because "This Man Has No Dick" will likely go fast.

THEMED QUIZ FAQs

Can people under 21 play? It’s up to the bar, and each venue’s going to be a little different. Check with them before you make any plans. 

Should I wear a costume? YES! Some of our venues may have a costume contest if there's enough participation, but that's up to the venue and host.

How do you sign up? Where do you buy tickets? You don’t. Get to the quiz venue early (we recommend an hour minimum) with cash for your entry fee to ensure seating. 

Is this a free quiz? No, it's $5 per person to play (bring cash!), and we'll ask you to pay for everyone on your team before we give you quiz materials.

What's the maximum/minimum players per team? There is no minimum, but if you want to win, you should have a fully staffed squad. Use our Facebook and Twitter to recruit. Team maximum is strictly six players, as always.

Can we play the quiz twice by traveling to another city? No. No. And no. First of all, that’d be impressive, because our themed quizzes are now always on one day (with the rarest of exceptions). Secondly, even if you figure out a way to cheat, don't do it. 

Can minors play? That's entirely up to the venue. Check with them.

Do spectators have to pay? Yes. Yes, they do. Spectators generally have to pay for sporting events, right? This also goes for Geeks Who Drink employees that aren't working at the event and the people they make love to.

Can my dad/girlfriend/friend sit at our table and not play? No. Six people max seated at a table and all players must pay.

Can you host this at BLANK bar in BLANK city? No. We host these at venues that meet certain criteria. So, if we're not in your city, there won't be a quiz. If we're in your city, and there's no quiz, we're sorry. Feel free to let us know if you think demand is there, and maybe next time we'll get it started.

Is there a prize for second place? Nope, this is winner take all. But second place is impressive; you should be proud.

How is the prize amount determined? In most cases, the prize amount is 50% of the total take. Why not 100%? Because we have to cover our costs of producing and marketing these event quizzes.

Will BLANK TOPIC be covered? Everything is fair game. Study hard. Apply yourself. And we never give clues.

Do I need to RSVP? Seating is first-come, first-served and there are no reservations. These things quite often sell out, so get there early to guarantee a seat.

How long will the quiz last? Our regular quizzes run about 1.5-2 hours, but themed quizzes require a bit more heavy lifting in terms of logistics, scoring and extra stuff we may have planned. Average is about 3 hours.

DOOM PATROL Pre-Party!

DC Universe and ATX Television Festival invite you to join us on February 18th for a special screening event of DC Universe's new original series DOOM PATROL (starring Matt Bomer, Diane Guerrero, Brendan Fraser, and more!). Stop by early and join ATX at The Highball for Happy Hour, then stick around for a special screening of the first two episodes of this exciting new show with snacks provided by DC Universe!

5:30pm – ATX Happy Hour in The Highball
7:00pm – DOOM PATROL Special Screening Event at Alamo South Lamar

About DOOM PATROL:
DOOM PATROL reimagines one of DC’s most beloved groups of Super Heroes: Robotman aka Cliff Steele (series star BRENDAN FRASER), Negative Man aka Larry Trainor (series star MATT BOMER), Elasti-Woman aka Rita Farr (series star APRIL BOWLBY) and Crazy Jane (series star DIANE GUERRERO), led by modern-day mad scientist Niles Caulder aka The Chief (series star TIMOTHY DALTON). Each member of the Doom Patrol suffered a horrible accident that gave them superhuman abilities, but also left them scarred and disfigured. Traumatized and downtrodden, the team found their purpose through The Chief, coming together to investigate the weirdest phenomena in existence. Following the mysterious disappearance of The Chief, these reluctant heroes will find themselves in a place they never expected to be, called to action by none other than Cyborg (series star JOIVAN WADE), who comes to them with a mission hard to refuse. Part support group, part Super Hero team, the Doom Patrol is a band of superpowered freaks who fight for a world that wants nothing to do with them.

Fantastic Fest presents NERD RAP THROWDOWN

September 21, 201411:59pm - 2:00am

Fantastic Fest presents NERD RAP THROWDOWN

NEEEERRRRRDDDDDSSS! Mount up!

From the early nerdcore albums of MC Frontalot to the Epic Rap Battles of History and the entire careers of the Lonely Island and Childish Gambino, rapping nerds have become major players in pop culture. Now it’s your turn to show us what you’ve got, in the fourth annual Fantastic Fest Nerd Rap Throwdown!

What is Nerd Rap? Simply put, it’s any hip hop beat paired with an emcee (or multiple microphone fiends) rapping about geek culture. Weird Al’s “All About the Pentiums” and “White & Nerdy” are amazing nerd rap parodies, and this Motherfuckin’ Tom Cruise rap by Andrew Todd at our event in 2013 is pretty badass, too.

In the first round of competition, each Nerd Rapper will perform a prepared rap using any beat of their choosing for up to 2 minutes of performance time. Each performer will be rated on a scale of 1 to 10 by our panel of celebrity judges, and the top three performers will go on to compete in the final round – the Freestyle Challenge. We’ll have our own beats prepared along with new geeky topics, and each rapper will have to make up a new flow about a new subject on the spot. Audience applause will determine the ultimate winner, who will be crowned Nerd Rap Champion of the Year and showered with fame and prizes from our Fantastic Fest sponsors.

Think you’ve got what it takes to become a Geek God of the Mic? Competing is totally free, and all you need to do is sign up using this form giving us your name and contact info along with a link to the beats you would like to use and the subject of your rap.

Another change this year from the first three years – performers may choose any background beats that they like. We still recommend the amazing talents of Fatboy Roberts, a movie-obsessed fan like the rest of us, and his incredibly transcendent, funkified remix of his favorite movie, TV show and video game themes, and you can find great beats at his website, Geek: Remixed. But if you have another source you want to use this year that will be 100% legit, too.

We’ll have a limited number of spaces for competitors, and we’ll be filling up performance slots on a first come, first served basis, so pick out your beats and sign up today!

Admission to the event is free for Fantastic Fest badgeholders, or $5 for general public audience members who aren’t also competing. Then stick around after the competition for an evening of rap karaoke where everyone is invited to perform their favorite hip hop jams on the Highball stage.

Fantastic Fest presents: MALTINS

September 3, 20149:00pm - 10:00pmFREE

Fantastic Fest presents: MALTINS

We'll be playing brief exhibition matches after Geeks Who Drink in the lead-up to Fantastic Fest's epic MALTINS tournament, with your chance to play against the main man himself, Leonard Maltin.

Created by Fantastic Fest alum and film producer, and self-described Leonard Maltin’s Movie Guide convert Ant Timpson circa the early 90s, MALTIN’S is a movie lover’s version of game night favorite Balderdash. Someone starts as “Maltin” and chooses a title from Leonard Maltin’s Movie Guide, a film that no one knows. The other players then all write down a fake synopsis based on the title. Players attempt to trick each other into believing that their synopsis is the real one while trying to decipher the true Leonard Maltin’s Movie Guide synopsis.

Can't make it and want to play anyway? For a full set of rules or to sign up head to the Fantastic Fest MALTIN'S page.

Fire Cannot Kill A Quizmaster: A Game of Thrones Quiz

June 13, 20152:00pm - 4:00pm$5 Per Teammate

Fire Cannot Kill A Quizmaster: A Game of Thrones Quiz

Can you play the “Rains of Castamere” on acoustic guitar? Do insist that your children call you “Mhysa”? Do you always sit as close to the exits as possible at weddings? If so, you’ll fit right in at our next theme quiz. On Saturday, June 13th we open the fighting pits and watch you duel for fame, gold and glory in Fire Cannot Kill A Quizmaster: A Game of Thrones Quiz! If you went to the others, don’t worry, this will be bloodier, geekier, and finished long before George R.R. Martin releases another book. 

The bulk of this quiz will cover the Game of Thrones television show through Season 5, but if you haven’t read the books, you might as well be Jon Snow because you know nothing. Anything and everything written by George R.R. Martin about the universe is fair game, so you might want to bring a friend who knows a thing or two about Dunk and Egg. Cheaters will be sent to the The Night’s Watch to die cold and alone.

Admission to the realm comes at a price - either bring us your first born for a marriage we can marry or $5 (no coins, paper currency please). The winners will be as rich as the Lannisters (incest and patricide optional), so bring your friends, your direwolves, and your dragons. The more commoners who play, the more riches you’ll earn. 

Remember, valar quizghulis, all men must quiz, so we hope to see you on the 13th. As George R.R. Martin once warned, “for every person who doesn’t come to a Geeks quiz, I kill a Stark.”

Fire Cannot Kill a Quizmaster: A Game of Thrones Quiz

Do you drink and know things? Did you skip filling out a March Madness bracket in favor of a GOT death pool? Are you mumbling the names of those who've wronged you under your breath right now? On Saturday, April 20th we’re headed back to the seven kingdoms to celebrate the final season of Game of Thrones with another edition of Fire Cannot Kill a Quizmaster! If you went to the others, don’t worry, this will be bloodier, geekier, and finished long before George R.R. Martin releases another book. Yes, we've been making that same joke since 2015. It’s still true.

The vast majority of the quiz will cover the Game of Thrones TV show through Season 7. Round eight, as always, will be “Random Knowledge” and any, and everything Game of Thrones will be fair game there. No we won’t give you additional hints. Cheaters, and daughters with king’s blood, will be burned at the stake.

Admission to the realm comes at a price - $5 (no coins, paper currency please). The winners will be as rich as the Lannisters (incest and patricide optional), so bring your friends, your direwolves, and your dragons. The more commoners who play, the more riches you’ll earn.

Remember, valar quizghulis, all men must quiz, so we hope to see you on the 20th. As George R.R. Martin once warned, “for every person who doesn’t come to a Geeks quiz, I kill a Stark.”

Come one, come all! It's Founders Night! 

Our amazing Bar Czar, Heather Smith is inviting you to try something wonderful! We'll be having a limit supply and selection from the amazing Founders Brewing Co. 
Here's what's on tap: 

FOUNDER'S ALL DAY IPA
An all-day IPA naturally brewed with a complex array of malts, grains and hops. Balanced for optimal aromatics and a clean finish. The perfect reward for an honest day’s work and the ultimate companion to celebrate life’s simple pleasures.
ABV: 4.7%

FOUNDER'S CENTENNIAL IPA
Get ready to bask in the glory of the frothy head’s floral bouquet. Relish the citrus accents from the abundance of dry hopping. This one’s sweet, yet balanced. Malty undertones shake hands with the hop character for a finish that never turns too bitter.
ABV: 7.2%

FOUNDER'S KBS (Kentucky Breakfast Stout)
What we’ve got here is an imperial stout brewed with a massive amount of coffee and chocolates, then cave-aged in oak bourbon barrels for an entire year to make sure wonderful bourbon undertones come through in the finish. Makes your taste buds squeal with delight.
ABV: 11.2%

FOUNDER'S IMPERIAL STOUT
Brewed with ten varieties of malted barley, this stout is smooth as silk, yet complex and rich in body. Serve this guy at cellar temperature. Put another log on the fire, sit back and enjoy the friendship of this ultimate winter warmer.
ABV: 10.5%

FOUNDER'S DIRTY BASTARD SCOTCH ALE 
So good it’s almost wrong. Dark ruby in color and brewed with seven varieties of imported malts. Complex in finish, with hints of smoke and peat, paired with a malty richness and a right hook of hop power to give it the bad attitude that a beer named Dirty Bastard has to live up to. Ain’t for the wee lads.
ABV: 8.5%

We'll be offering $8 flights so you can go crazy and try a whole bunch of them AND we'll have Founders rep Myk O'Conner here to answer your questions!

Friday The 13th Movie Moxie!

moxie – n. – verve; courage and aggressiveness; skill

Movie Moxie – prp. n. – The Highball's boozy and offbeat live movie trivia game show!

Movie Moxie features contestants from Austin's film and cinephile community battling for mental dominance and your amusement. They'll face a variety of motion picture questions from ghost with the most Maxim Pozderac [Fantastic Feud, QRANK] and new ghoul at school D.S. Cohen before the alcohol-soaked final round where they must drink their answers. Fun will be had, egos will be inflated and/or crushed, newly-learned obscure facts will be quickly forgotten, and throughout the evening there will be prizes for select audience members who can prove their Movie Moxie™

This Friday the 13th, Movie Moxie is gonna get spooky! The Highball schedule has finally allowed for an October show which means three teams getting scared smart with all kinds of horror trivia. After bobbing for apples and touching bowls of brains & eyeballs, they’ll be asked about spine-chilling taglines, visual adaptations of undescribable terror, and one of the most regrettable film tropes ever. Don’t break any mirrors, walk under any ladders, or miss this show, because it’d be real unlucky to not see Movie Moxie celebrate Horror on a Friday that happens to be the Thirteenth day of October!

Garrett was born and raised on the Wind River Indian Reservation near Lander, Wyoming. He has this to say of his musical journey: "I like music that moves you. The blues whatever form it takes, soul,country, folk, it's got that power because you know it's real. I set out to craft my own sound, and not pigeon hole myself into this one thing. Feeling has no genre." A decade of playing, writing & singing have given birth to a unique style.

Geeks Who Drink's PARKS AND REC QUIZ!

Do you own a handmade copy of The Cones of Dunshire? Do you celebrate Galentine's Day? Is butter your favorite food? If so, the next Geeks Who Drink theme quiz will have you, literally, quivering with anticipation.

On Saturday, February 28th, treat yo' self to our first-ever Parks & Rec theme quiz in select cities across the country. Check below for venues and times and make sure to arrive early, because Tom is inviting every girl he meets and seats will fill up fast.

Our strict, no cell phone policy, will be in effect. Make Ron proud and go off the grid during the quiz. We'll be covering all 6 seasons of the show, most of which are available on Netflix, so cozy up with your boo and take it all in.

Admission is $5 per person and. the more quizzers we have, the bigger the prizes! You might want to come prepared with more than one team name though, because "5000 Candles in the Wind" will likely go fast.

THEMED QUIZ FAQs

Can people under 21 play? It’s up to the bar, and each venue’s going to be a little different. Check with them before you make any plans. 

Should I wear a costume? YES! Some of our venues may have a costume contest if there's enough participation, but that's up to the venue and host.

How do you sign up? Where do you buy tickets? You don’t. Get to the quiz venue early (we recommend an hour minimum) with cash for your entry fee to ensure seating. EXCEPTION LEVEL MIDNIGHT: Alamo Drafthouse Locations (DFW and Houston) will run a reservation system for seats. See below.

Alamo Drafthouse Ticketing Instructions
1) Using the system you'll buy your tickets for your WHOLE TEAM. Did someone drop out? Need to add a player? We'll deal with that on the day of the event (come early). 
2) Please don't leave empty seats. We're one big happy family and we're going to do whatever we can to fit in as many people as we can. Thus, no buffer seats, okay? 
3) Don't get married to your spot in the theater. We reserve the right to reassign seats and/or move to a different auditorium, thus changing your row and seat assignment. Questions or concerns? Email quizmaster Stephanie Stone-Robb [email protected]
Okay? Okay. Buy tickets at this link for DFW: http://drafthouse.com/movies/geeks-who-drink-parks-and-rec/dfw
Or this link for Houston: http://drafthouse.com/movies/geeks-who-drink-parks-and-rec/houston

Is this a free quiz? No, it's $5 per person to play (bring cash!), and we'll ask you to pay for everyone on your team before we give you quiz materials.

What's the maximum/minimum players per team? There is no minimum, but if you want to win, you should have a fully staffed squad. Use our Facebook and Twitter to recruit. Team maximum is strictly six players, as always.

Can we play the quiz twice by traveling to another city? No. No. And no. First of all, that’d be impressive, because our themed quizzes are now always on one day (with the rarest of exceptions). Secondly, even if you figure out a way to cheat, don't do it. 

Can minors play? That's entirely up to the venue. Check with them.

Do spectators have to pay? Yes. Yes, they do. Spectators generally have to pay for sporting events, right? This also goes for Geeks Who Drink employees that aren't working at the event and the people they make love to.

Can my dad/girlfriend/friend sit at our table and not play? No. Six people max seated at a table and all players must pay.

Can you host this at BLANK bar in BLANK city? No. We host these at venues that meet certain criteria. So, if we're not in your city, there won't be a quiz. If we're in your city, and there's no quiz, we're sorry. Feel free to let us know if you think demand is there, and maybe next time we'll get it started.

Is there a prize for second place? Nope, this is winner take all. But second place is impressive; you should be proud.

How is the prize amount determined? In most cases, the prize amount is 50% of the total take. Why not 100%? Because we have to cover our costs of producing and marketing these event quizzes.

Will BLANK TOPIC be covered? Everything is fair game. Study hard. Apply yourself. And we never give clues.

Do I need to RSVP? Seating is first-come, first-served and there are no reservations. These things quite often sell out, so get there early to guarantee a seat.

How long will the quiz last? Our regular quizzes run about 1.5-2 hours, but themed quizzes require a bit more heavy lifting in terms of logistics, scoring and extra stuff we may have planned. Average is about 3 hours.

I'd like to help promote the quiz/talk to you on my podcast/contribute some bonus prizes. Great! Contact us at [email protected] and we'll see about making that happen.

GEEKS WHO DRINK: Let The Wookie Win - A STAR WARS QUIZ

GEEKS WHO DRINK: Let The Wookie Win - A STAR WARS QUIZ

LET THE WOOKIEE WIN: A STAR WARS QUIZ
EPISODE II: Attack of the Prequels

On December 12th, Geeks Who Drink is returning to a galaxy far, far away for another iteration of Let the Wookiee Win: A Star Wars Quiz. Get ready for The Force Awakens with the grandest Star Wars pub quiz this side of Tatooine. 

Listen up, because we’re going to kill a TON of Bothans to bring you this quiz. Our questions will cover all six theatrical Star Wars films -- that’s Episodes I through VI -- and material related to ONLY six films. Study like a thorough padawan; they may never say the names of those bounty hunters Vader sends after the Millenium Falcon, but we consider that fair game. That also means no cartoons, no role-playing adventures, no videogames, no comic books, no Ewok Adventures, no Extended Universe novels, and no Holiday Special.

So dust off those laserdiscs, consult your Wookieepedia, and start recruiting. Geeks Who Drink rules limit teams to a six player max, so choose wisely. We charge a $5 admission fee for each player, and the more players, the bigger the pot. Prizes are usually expected to be in the hundreds of dollars -- the more players, the bigger the pot of credits, so invite your friends.

 2. An Austin based band combining many different styles into one uncontrollable, danceable, New Orleans style groove.

For many years New Orleans musicians and Austin musicians have traveled back and forth to share their unique styles of music.  When Hurricane Katrina struck in 2005, many New Orleans musicians took up temporary residence in Austin, TX, influencing many Austin musicians with their infectious styles of music.  Gumbo Ya Ya is a result of this blending.  Combining many different styles into a roux of groove, Gumbo Ya Ya will make it difficult for any audience to stay in their seats.

BATMAN & ROBIN (1997) Join us as George Clooney/Bruce Wayne uses his Bat-Nipples to fight Uma, Arnie, and NOT Tom Hardy. The caped crusader enlists a couple college-aged kids and puts them in mortal danger so that he can even the odds, and spoiler alert: they win! 

At HeckleVision we pick some hilariously horrible movies (but movies we can't help but love anyway) and through the magic of MuVChat technology we let you text your heckles silently from your seat as they then magically appear up on the screen alongside the main action. ANYTHING goes in this all out assault on crappy cinema and you can bask in the glory of your textual genius or recoup from a whiff as you prepare your next text. When you don't have anything to contribute to the heckle conversation you can sit back and enjoy other peoples' snarky comments. So charge up those cell phones and prepare your wit because it's heckling time!

How does it work? 
It couldn't be simpler! You just log into our secure server via text message and then anything you text to us appears on the screen. ANYTHING.

Are my “heckles” censored? 
Not in any way, shape, or form. This show is is adults only – and gets raunchy!

Why are you making fun of this movie? 
We’re not making fun, per se. We love movies. In fact, we live movies. And each and every one of us knows what we like, and what we hate! Now’s our chance to vent off a little steam on the flicks that traditionally reviewed poorly – even though they are most certainly still quality! This is when we sit back, relax, and enjoy some of the levity and fun that comes with being an amateur film critic.

In a post apocalyptic United States, humanity is forced to live in gigantic "Mega Cities" due to the harsh condition of the rest of the planet. With so much overpopulation, order is kept by a force of "Judges" who enforce the law and conduct on the spot trials AND sentences. 

At HeckleVision we pick some hilariously horrible movies (but movies we can't help but love anyway) and through the magic of MuVChat technology we let you text your heckles silently from your seat as they then magically appear up on the screen alongside the main action. ANYTHING goes in this all out assault on crappy cinema and you can bask in the glory of your textual genius or recoup from a whiff as you prepare your next text. When you don't have anything to contribute to the heckle conversation you can sit back and enjoy other peoples' snarky comments. So charge up those cell phones and prepare your wit because it's heckling time!

How does it work? 
It couldn't be simpler! You just log into our secure server via text message and then anything you text to us appears on the screen. ANYTHING.

Are my “heckles” censored? 
Not in any way, shape, or form. This show is is adults only – and gets raunchy!

Why are you making fun of this movie?
We’re not making fun, per se. We love movies. In fact, we live movies. And each and every one of us knows what we like, and what we hate! Now’s our chance to vent off a little steam on the flicks that traditionally reviewed poorly – even though they are most certainly still quality! This is when we sit back, relax, and enjoy some of the levity and fun that comes with being an amateur film critic.

She is also an ambassador for La Santa Luna Boutique and lends her talents as choreographer and fire performer to their performance group.

Jolie and The Jackalopes

May 14, 20167:00pm - 9:30pmFREE

Jolie and The Jackalopes

Local Jazz singer Jolie Goodnight wants you throw on a cowboy hat, pull on the boots and check out: The Jackalopes! 

From Jolie: 
The Jackalopes, a real gone country, jump blues, rockabilly, honky tonk band taking you on a journey of tunes all the way from when western was swinging, to the boppin’ days of rockabilly, and finally to the days of the cosmic cowboys of Texas. 

I am over the moon with how marvelously y’all have received me as a jazz singer and burlesque performer and so I feel greatly encouraged to extend my musical life into another adventure that is Jolie and The Jackalopes. And being the kind of nostalgic and analytical gal that I am, I’d love to tell you all about this addition to my musical career. 

By the grace and rustic powers of Kimmie Rhodes and Joe Gracey I was blessed with a showbiz life, surrounded by musicians of all kinds, but mostly those of a country variety - a vast array of Americana song-writers, country swing fiddle players, cowboy poets of the cosmic persuasion, and country heroes. There is no denying that while jazz exists in my heart and soul, country exists in my bones. I grew up in some kind of central Texas hill country beautiful lunacy, 
one to which I care very deeply to pay homage. And in my mind I was having a beautiful life (coincidentally, this phrase made its way into a song Mama and Waylon wrote together.) In the scrapbook of my childhood mind there is a melange of country music images and moments: of cranking peach ice cream out on the porch with guitar player Bucky Meadows, of Stubbs in the kitchen making BBQ sauce, of crayons on Willie Nelson’s tour bus and he calls me the best colorer in the world, of Waylon Jennings and I picking out matching shirts and his happy-birthday-answering-machine-messages, and of Blaze Foley giving me a flashlight and a teddy bear. 

For years I slept in my daddy’s bass case with my stuffed animal and a book backstage at Farm Aid and Willie’s 4th of July Picnic and other concerts. From backstage I watched Mama look and sound like a rockabilly pin up cowgirl queen in her petticoats, bustiers, vintage boots and cowgirl hat. I learned to dance at the Broken Spoke by placing my little feet on the boots of old Texans willing to teach me to two-step. Many weekends and summers were spent at Willie’s Pedernales studio where I remember sticking my head in the echo room over and over to imagine my voice sounding like Patsy Cline’s. It was a magical place of only music in the air, old grey new balance tennis shoes, and Shiner Bock. If I think far back enough into my little girl days, it isn’t just a whirlwind, but rather a Southern tornado that consists of the sounds and words of Wayne Hancock, Ray Campi, Rosie Flores, Asleep at the Wheel, Johnny Gimble, Joe Ely, Doug Sahm, Townes Van Zandt, Bob Wills, Alvin Crow, Hank Williams, Carl Perkins, Elvis, Frida and the Firedogs, Flaco Jimenez, Jerry Lee Lewis, Jimmy Day, John Reed, Gary Nicholson, Beth Neilson Chapman, Emmy Lou Harris…

Fast forward and I’m in my twenties exploring the rockabilly scene that Austin had to offer. Luckily into my life arrived two folks who welcomed me and loved me and made me feel right at home, Dylan Cavalier and the late Chadd Thomas. It makes me simply giddy that Dylan is the man slapping the bass for Jolie & The Jackalopes. From then on, the rockabilly family has been a wonderful haven for me in cities across the nation. 

Before I was born (and a little while after) Mama, Daddy, Bobbly Earl Smith and a bunch of other Austin cronies had a band called Kimmie Rhodes & The Jackalope Brothers. And so, the mythical jackalope is my heritage and I find it my duty as an Austin gal to carry on the name of such a creature. 

In the words of daddy, Drink lots of water, stay off your feet, and come when you can, Jolie Goodnight

Jolie Goodnight & Her Swing Band

May 21, 20167:00pm - 9:00pmNO COVER

Jolie Goodnight & Her Swing Band

Jolie Goodnight is a creative tour-de-force, an international jazz performer in love with all things decadent and delightful. Hailing back to the days of glitz and glamour, Jolie Goodnight has dazzled audiences around the US with steamy fan dances and sensational jazz singing. Although she is hailed as a staggering jazz singer, Goodnight is well known for her dirty blues tunes and surprising audiences with a larger than life voice, a voice that’s been said to “drip from her mouth like sweet molasses.”

Daughter of the legendary producer Joe Gracey and singer song-writer Kimmie Rhodes, Goodnight was born in Austin, Texas into a world-wide showbiz life. She began her career as an actress, performing in pieces including “Footloose,” “Much Ado About Nothing,” “The Way of the World,” “Small Town Girl,” “Hillbilly Heaven,” and “Parade.” A ravishing member of the illustrious Jigglewatts Burlesque Revue, it’s no surprise that this sultry red-head was awarded “Best Tease” and “Audience Choice” at the Texas Burlesque Festival and is the 2012 2nd runner up for Miss Viva Las Vegas.

In love with the beauty of another era, she pursued a career as a pin up model, beginning in Rockabilly Magazine and later featuring in Retro Lovely, Pin Curl Magazine, Bachelor Pad, Pin Up Playing Cards, Texas Women with Texas Tattoos, and The Austin Post.

Currently, Jolie croons with her jazz band, and performs burlesque as a member of the Jigglewatts.

JUSTIF - Acoustic Duo!

Justin Marks and Tiffani Theiss make up the acoustic duo, JUSTIF. They are reminiscent of days gone by... an era where all you needed were six strings and a story to sing. With an acoustic guitar, two vocals, and a whole slew of shakers, they've slowly been making their musical presence known throughout central TX. Be it sharing folk-rock favorites at local breweries, wineries, & hotels, or spotlighting from their vast library of original tunes on Austin's finest stages, JusTif knows how to have a good time. They entertain with the feeling of a full band, all the while pulling you in with heartfelt harmonies and lyrical truths the likes of which linger long after the show is finished.


JUSTIF first met in NYC, but have been calling Austin home for a decade now. After years of playing in the ATX, they've begun taking their songs on the road to destinations in the greater Texas area. In July of 2015, they released their first official EP "Piece of Mind" recorded at Jumping Dog Studios in Austin, TX. They've also previously released several live songs & demos from their growing library of Justif originals. For the most part, they focus on remaining a true "live" band, playing regularly on any given night of the week.

KARAOKE APOCALYPSE

Splice three parts musical chops and two parts ‘we don’t give a f*ck’ with an unabashed affection for catchy songs in all their cheesy, head-banging, sing-along glory, then turn the whole mess up to 11. That’s Karaoke Apocalypse with The Dead Motley Sex Maidens.

Founded in 2004 by Austin music stalwarts Chepo Pena and Adam Tyner — and rounded out with Chris Nine and Mario Alvarez, the Sex Maidens are Austin’s #1 live karaoke band. And it’s no surprise. These musicians cut their teeth on the best of Austin bands: Sincola, Gomez, David Garza, Pop Unkown, Milton Mapes, Amy Cook (Pena); Nathan Hamilton and Rockland Eagles (Tyner); High Watt Crucifixers (Alvarez); Manhole and Georgian Company (Nine).

With a ever growing catalog of punk, rock, and hair metal classics from the ’70s and ’80s — from “Suffragette City” to “Run to the Hills” to “I Wanna Be Your Dog” and more – the Sex Maidens transform civilians into rock stars in three magic minutes. This is not your sister-in-laws karaoke, unless your sister-in-law happens to be a video vixen. To ensure that Karaoke Apocalypse doesn’t explode into full-blown chaos, the show is (partially) kept on the rails by a bevy of hostesses: Ruby Lamb of Satan’s Cheerleaders fame, the luminous Sarah Clark  of Pearlescent, Stella from pop-punk legends Cruiserweight, and author/Rollergirl Melicious.

This special Karaoke night will be presented by Austin musician and artist Chepo Pena, and all proceeds will benefit his ongoing cancer treatment. You can learn more about Chepo and donate to the cause (as well as have an awesome line item on your credit card bill) by going to this GoFundMe page.

We'll be kicking off the night with Karaoke Underground from 7:00pm-9:30pm

And then bumping it up a notch with Karaoke Apocolypse from 10:00pm-2:00am

Instead of the traditional sign up process, the list of singers will be pulled from "The Drum of Destiny." Anyone interested in singing will be able to purchase raffle tickets from our hostesses at $5 each. You can purchase (and enter) as many tickets as you like. The ticket will have a space for your name and your two song choices (1st choice + backup) We'll draw 3 singers at a time so that the show moves at a quick pace and we get in as many of you as possible. You can only sing once, but if your name is drawn multiple times you will be eligible for a special drawing at the end of the night.

The raffle will include AMAZING donated gifts from businesses such as The Alamo Drafthouse, but also have some killer karaoke themed ones like: 

The Golden Ticket: 
KA will learn one song for you - and only you - and keep it available for you to sing at any show you attend. That's right, you can skip the line, anytime and sing your favorite song.

The Line Skipper:
Winners of this prize will be able to FB message us to let us know they will be attending a show, and we'll reserve their song choice and a spot in the first set for them. One time use only. We'll be raffling off several of these prizes.

KAREN TENNISON BAND

June 6, 20157:00pm - 9:00pmNO COVER

KAREN TENNISON BAND

Karen, like Anita O'Day, considers herself a "song stylist," meaning she uses her voice like an instrument, considering herself more of a jazz musician than a vocalist. Her sound is sweet, emotional, and will always leave you on the edge of your seat, wanting more. The charm and charisma emanating from her being allows for the music she creates to be timeless and flawless with each breath of song she sings. With a voice as captivating as Karen's, it's no surprise that she plays music at some of Austin's most premiere venues with some of the city's finest jazz musicians.

LAUGH, DAMMIT!

September 14, 20147:30pm - 9:00pmNO COVER

LAUGH, DAMMIT!

Austin's funniest live game show! 

Comics Joe Hafkey (the "Michael Jordan of Laugh, Dammit!"), Joey Zimmerman, and Christina Parrish try to make contestants laugh - if they can resist, they win prizes! Laugh, Dammit! is inspired by the classic TV game show 'Make Me Laugh!' Host David James drives a rotating panel of talented comics as they do everything they can to make contestantslaugh. Contestants are snapped up from our live audience. Our laugh judge and fart sound provider is Avery Moore, and she is joined by announcer Duncan Carson. Unless you are one of the show's longtime fans, you have never seen anything like this before!

Will I be chosen to compete?
Maybe. If you don't want to be on stage, you don't have to. But if you don't have a sense of humor, you might be perfect for winning prizes.

How do I win?
Don't laugh. Not even a giggle. 

What will the comics do to make me laugh?
Be really, really funny. They can't touch you and they have to keep some of their clothes on but otherwise, anything goes. 

I haven't laughed in twelve years. Should I be a contestant?
You haven't been to a Laugh, Dammit show. We'll change that for you.

How much is it?
IT'S FREE, BABY!

Mazel Tov Kocktail Hour - THREE IDENTICAL STRANGERS PARTY!

Mazel Tov Kocktail Hour is a traditional Jewish music project, started in 2007 by Samantha Goldberg. Dylan M. Blackthorn, & Kronk (Sick).  The band has traveled the world in many formations, learning many different tunes and the history and context of the development of klezmer music and Yiddish folksongs.  From Texas to Manhattan, Mexico, Poland, Cleveland, Hungary, Bulgaria, Ireland, and Greece, Mazel Tov Kocktail Hour has played at sold out venues, busked for a living on the street, and shared Jewish music with many people.

Jewish music is filled with the spirit of celebration, yearning, and meaning.  Mazel Tov Kocktail Hour brings to all this our experience as Texans & Jews, exiles with rebellious spirit.  The band features a mix of klezmorim (folk musicians) and muzikantn (master players), all acoustic instruments in a traditionalist ensemble resembling the klezmer orchestras of Jewish immigrant families from Eastern Europe in the early 1900’s.

In the beginning, the band had learned two sets of klezmer music and Yiddish folksongs from sheet music and old recordings.  Their deep exploration of Klezmer began when one of their mentors, Mark Rubin, told us that if you learn music from a record, your understanding is only as deep as the grooves on the record.  He suggested we visit a list of certain teachers, festivals, workshops, & places, to get a feel for the context that the music developed in.

The band’s adventures began with a trip to Poland with a holocaust survivor to play for the Polish family that hid him during the Shoah.  We ended up also playing a sold-out show in Oświęcim, Poland, near the infamous Auschwitz death camp, getting Sig-heiled off the street by Neo-nazis in Warsaw, and also drinking with Anti-fa skins and playing for them in their local bar after hours in Krakow.  The Poland leg of that journey ended with Mazel Tov Kocktail Hour playing for a large crowd circle dancing in the streets after the final concert in the square in the historical Jewish Kazimierz neighborhood of Krakow, Poland.

For most of their existence as a band, Mazel Tov Kocktail hour has studied in-depth with Sherry Mayrent, founder of the Mayrent Institute for Yiddish Culture and former Associate Director of KlezKamp and Living Traditions, Inc.  Sherry’s adept approach to teaching traditional Jewish music has impacted the band’s sound to a great degree, providing a deep well of understanding from which the traditional klezmer sound has sprung to life.  The band has studied with Sherry Mayrent at Klezkamp NY, Klezkamp Madison, and with private and public lessons and workshops.  For more information about Sherry Mayrent and her teachings, you may visit www.klezmeracademy.com

Professor of Yiddish, Itzik Gottesman has been an important mentor for the band, coaching the singers on Yiddish pronunciation and translations.  Professor Gottesman publishes informative articles on Yiddish folksong on his website, Yiddish Song of the Week.

Mazel Tov Kocktail Hour has been featured at the San Antonio International Accordion Festival (on the poster even!), Pecan St. Festival in Austin Texas, Houston Pride Parade, Honk TX festival, many Jewish weddings all across the country, Bar/Bat Mitzvot, as part of services and festivals at congregation Agudas Achim in Austin Texas, schools, synagogues, churches, clubs, bars, cafes, streetcorners, birthday parties, dog’s birthday parties, interfaith events, really just about anywhere music has been played.

MORE COWBELL: MASHUP BAND!

More Cowbell is Austin's only mashup band that specializes in playing a unique style of music where two or more songs are seamlessly blended to create something which is at the same time familiar and new. What started with one song has become a musical experience that can't be found anywhere else.

Now featuring Alon, Minh, Nick, Ronnie, and Ed, More Cowbell has become one of Austin's most popular bands. In 2006 they were voted the 3rd best cover band and 8th best novelty band in the Austin Chronicle Reader's poll. In 2007 they climbed to 2nd best cover band and 4th best novelty band. Finally, in 2009 More Cowbell WON the award for "Best None Of The Above" while coming in second for "experimental band". The last two years they have come in as second Best Cover Band. More Cowbell has gained a loyal following with a consistently high energy show and a genuineness which makes clear how grateful they are simply to be onstage. Their style of mashups and covers is very unique and usually has the audience laughing and dancing at the same time. When inviting people to a show, Cowbell members always say the same thing "we won't promise to impress you musically, but we WILL promise that you'll have a great time."

Motown Monday starring THE NIGHTOWLS

August 25, 201411:15pm - 12:15pmFREE

Motown Monday starring THE NIGHTOWLS

It’s 1,390 miles from Austin, Texas to Detroit, but when Austin band THE NIGHTOWLS rev their musical engines, that distance disappears with the speed of sound. 

Founded in 2011 by frontman and lead singer Ryan Harkrider, the Nightowls—all ten of them—have been spreading that sound all over Texas ever since, while perfecting arrangements of the nine Harkrider compositions contained on GOOD AS GOLD.

When they were ready to record, they turned to award-winning Austin guitarist and producer Jake Langley, famed for his work with legends Roberta Flack and Bobby Blue Bland. Langley helped them create a feel that’s both retro and fresh—and sounds like a journey through 50 years of R&B history, without a hint of pastiche.

The first five songs represent the Nightowls’ progressive “mod-soul”; the next three evoke more classic Motown textures. The closer is an eight-minute epic titled “Blood Run Cold.”

It’s no accident that one of those middle tracks, “You Don’t Have to Worry (I’ll Be There),” references a Jackson 5 hit in its title; with sweet harmonies by singers Tara Williamson and Ellie Carroll, the spirit of that elemental soul band jumps to life. The pleading ballad “I’m Sorry Baby” finds the Nightowls channeling Smokey Robinson & the Miracles. “Nice to Know You,” a heart-wrenching tale, stretches beyond convention with xylophone and electric sitar. “Break My Heart Tonight,” the album’s opener, contains a groove so infectious, it could pull even the grouchiest soul onto the dance floor. And in the upbeat, optimistic title track, the Nightowls convey their dedication, perseverance and above all, passion.

Hailing from all over the map geographically and musically, the Nightowls claim terrain from New England to Arizona and influences from Americana to funk. Bassist Rob Alton was trained at Berklee College of Music; other bandmates honed their skills in dive bars. Together, they push R&B’s boundaries while staying true to its horn- and harmony-laden heart—and soul.

Though they’ve been together only two years, the Nightowls’ combined chemistry so strong, it’s as if they bonded like glue at Motown’s famed charm school and stayed united ever since. The evidence may not be hanging in a frame (yet), but the Nightowls know their groove is GOOD AS GOLD.

Motown Monday: SPECIAL EDITION!

June 8, 20159:00pm - 12:00pmNO COVER

Motown Monday: SPECIAL EDITION!

It’s 1,390 miles from Austin, Texas to Detroit, but when Austin band THE NIGHTOWLSrev their musical engines, that distance disappears with the speed of sound. 

Founded in 2011 by frontman and lead singer Ryan Harkrider, the Nightowls—all ten of them—have been spreading that sound all over Texas ever since, while perfecting arrangements of the nine Harkrider compositions contained on GOOD AS GOLD.

When they were ready to record, they turned to award-winning Austin guitarist and producer Jake Langley, famed for his work with legends Roberta Flack and Bobby Blue Bland. Langley helped them create a feel that’s both retro and fresh—and sounds like a journey through 50 years of R&B history, without a hint of pastiche.

The first five songs represent the Nightowls’ progressive “mod-soul”; the next three evoke more classic Motown textures. The closer is an eight-minute epic titled “Blood Run Cold.”

It’s no accident that one of those middle tracks, “You Don’t Have to Worry (I’ll Be There),” references a Jackson 5 hit in its title; with sweet harmonies by singers Tara Williamson and Ellie Carroll, the spirit of that elemental soul band jumps to life.

OCEAN’S 8 BLACK TIE EVENT

Experience a night of metropolitan glamor right at your local Alamo Drafthouse with this special black tie event presented with Kendra Scott. Don your fanciest ballgown or your best tailored tux for a refined evening hanging out with Debbie Ocean and the gang in this new caper comedy. Just, uh, keep a close eye on those jewels…

Please join us one hour before your screening for drink specials, glamour shots, and other activities.

About OCEAN'S 8
Danny Ocean's career in crime may have ended in OCEAN'S 13 - but his sister is very much in business.

Long estranged from her brother, recently-paroled criminal mastermind Debbie Ocean (Academy Award-winner Sandra Bullock) has a plot brewing. Her target: the annual Met Gala in New York - and the $150 million necklace set to make an appearance around the neck of actress Daphne Kluger (Anne Hathaway). But to pull off the heist of the century, she'll need the crew of the century.

That crew forms a dynamite cast for OCEAN'S 8. Cate Blanchett, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Rihanna, Awkwafina, and Helena Bonham Carter join Bullock and Hathaway in what's sure to be the year's coolest caper.

PLEASANTVILLE and THE HUNGER GAMES director Gary Ross continues the legacy of Steven Soderbergh's classic heist trilogy. With a star-studded cast and trademark heist-movie hijinks, OCEAN'S 8 is a female-driven crime flick with attitude to spare.

Please join us in the Highball at 6pm for a pre-film party before we head into the theater. There will be drink specials, a photo op, and plenty of fun to be had while we relive the glory years of yesterday!

DICAPRIO AND PITT STAR IN TARANTINO’S LATEST MASTERPIECE.

After a career of celebrating, dismantling, and reviving every corner of cinema history he can find, master filmmaker and provocateur Quentin Tarantino finally turns his attention to the movie business itself.

It’s 1969, and TV Western star Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) wants to make the jump to the silver screen. Together with his stunt double, the “deadliest man alive” Clint Booth (Brad Pitt), they try and make it big in Hollywood. But the industry is changing, and as Rick and Cliff try to change with the times, Charles Manson makes plans to leave his own mark on Hollywood, starting with Rick’s next-door neighbor, Sharon Tate.

With a characteristically incredible cast, including Al Pacino, Dakota Fanning, Luke Perry (in his final role), Lena Dunham, Michael Madsen, Tim Roth, and Margot Robbie as Sharon Tate, ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD promises to be everything we’ve come to expect from Tarantino: dynamic, unforgettable, indescribable.

PUPPET EMO BAND - FRAGILE ROCK (EARLY SHOW)

May 20, 20178:00pm - 9:00pmFREE

PUPPET EMO BAND - FRAGILE ROCK (EARLY SHOW)

It's the EMO PUPPET BAND you've always dreamed of, amazing vocals - huge sound - and did we mention that they're FREAKING PUPPETS!?

Fragile Rock is a 10-piece emo band of puppets, musicians, singers, performers and ultimate rock and roll sadness. Since launching in Austin, Texas in 2014, their live shows are wild and unpredictable earning growing festival buzz recently at Sound on Sound Fest and a feature on the PBS series Stand Up Empire. Their pain is universal. Their songs are authentic. Sure they may mash up Joy Division with the Backstreet Boys but go ahead, let the Fragile Rock in. Don't let them deny your puppet pain. Stay Felt.

QUIZFINITY AND BEYOND: A Pixar Pub Quiz

June 11, 20163:00pm - 5:00pm$5 Per Teammate

QUIZFINITY AND BEYOND: A Pixar Pub Quiz

Note: Space is limited - The Highball is first come, first served for space for this event. You'll definitely want to be early to make sure you get a table. Entry not permitted once at capacity. 

To Infinity and Beyond!  Kachow!

Have you ever longed for a gourmet meal prepared by a rat? Do you secretly hope to find monsters in your closet when you go to bed at night? Do you find yourself muttering “just keep swimming” in rush hour traffic? Then you’ve got a friend in Geeks Who Drink! 

To get you primed for the release of FINDING DORY (June 17), we're bringing you QUIZFINITY AND BEYOND: A PIXAR QUIZ on June 11. With 8 whole rounds on Pixar’s beloved classics, this'll be the best day since you got that septuacentennial cupcake in a cup.

How does it work? Listen close. The bulk of the rounds will consist only of questions about the theatrically released films produced by Pixar (there's 16 of 'em) with one BIG exception. Anything and everything Pixar is fair game in round 8. It is "Random Knowledge" after all. You've got two weeks to catch up on 30 years of animated classics, so cuddle up with your cowboy doll, or your beloved life partner who'll definitely die before you complete any of the things in your adventure book, and get studying!
The quiz starts promptly at 3PM so make sure to arrive early. Admission is $5 (cash only please) per person and the winners will take home the pot. Otherwise, normal Geeks Who Drink rules apply. You're team is limited to 6 players and cheaters may find a snake in their boots.

THEMED QUIZ FAQs:

What is a Pub Quiz? A contest of intelligence in which teams of 6 answer questions about Pixar movies to win fabulous prizes.

Can people under 21 play? Yes, this is an all-ages quiz and family teams are welcome. Guests under 21 must be accompanied by a parent.

Should I wear a costume? YES! Some of our venues may have a costume contest if there's enough participation, but that's up to the venue and host.

How do you sign up? Where do you buy tickets? You don’t. Get to the quiz venue early (we recommend at least an hour minimum) with cash for your entry fee to ensure seating. 

Is this a free quiz? No, it's $5 per person to play (bring cash!), and we'll ask you to pay for everyone on your team before we give you quiz materials.

What's the maximum/minimum players per team? There is no minimum, but if you want to win, you should have a fully staffed squad. Use our Facebook and Twitter to recruit. Team maximum is strictly six players, as always.

Do spectators have to pay? Yes. Yes, they do. Spectators generally have to pay for sporting events, right? And movie trivia is a serious sport!

Can my child/girlfriend/friend sit at our table and not play? No. Six people max seated at a table and all players must pay.

Can you host this in my city? No. We’re sorry, this is an exclusive Alamo Drafthouse event at the select venues. If you don’t see your city listed above, we’re sorry, but it won’t be coming to town.

Is there a prize for second place? Nope, this is winner take all. But second place is impressive; you should be proud.

How is the prize amount determined? In most cases, the prize amount is 50% of the total take. Why not 100%? Because we have to cover our costs of producing and marketing these event quizzes.

Will CARS 2 be covered? Everything is fair game. Study hard. Apply yourself. And we never give clues.

How long will the quiz last? Our regular quizzes run about 1.5-2 hours, but themed quizzes require a bit more heavy lifting in terms of logistics, scoring and extra stuff we may have planned. Average is about 3 hours.

I'd like to help promote the quiz/talk to you on my podcast/contribute some bonus prizes. Great! Contact us at [email protected] and we'll see about making that happen.

And don't forget to get your FINDING DORY tickets at drafthouse.com.

READY OR NOT Board Game Night!

August 27, 20197:00pm - 9:30pmFREE!

READY OR NOT Board Game Night!

To celebrate the release of the new film READY OR NOT, we're giving our Highball Game Night a twist! We'll have a wide collection of board games new and old, plus enough Cards Against Humanity decks for everyone to join in the fun! Whether you're a Settler of Catan or you haven't got a Clue how to play, we'll have something for everyone!

About READY OR NOT:

The next time you sit down to a game night with your in-laws and think, “Ugh, just kill me,” be careful what you wish for.

When Grace (Samara Weaving, THE BABYSITTER) marries Alex (Mark O’Brien, BAD TIMES AT THE EL ROYALE), she takes comfort in knowing they won’t spend much time with his wealthy, mean-spirited family of board game tycoons. But when the whole family settles in to play a game on her wedding night, she learns just how twisted this family really is.

You’ll laugh and gasp in equal measure as bold, badass Grace takes on a bunch of spoiled rich kids in an ornate mansion straight out of CLUE in the deadliest game of hide and seek ever. With black humor and gruesome violence (and a killer supporting cast, including Andie MacDowell and Adam Brody), READY OR NOT takes family game night to vicious new territory.

Rocketman Glitter & Glam Costume Party

On May 31st, we're hosting the ultimate Glitter & Glam Elton John Costume Screening to celebrate the opening night of ROCKETMAN! Please join us in the Highball at 6pm for a pre-film party before we head into the theater. There will be drink specials, a photo op, and plenty of fun to be had while we rock out to the greatest Elton hits. No Tiny Dancer would miss this dazzling night!

About the film: 

Described by director Dexter Fletcher (BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY) as a “musical fantasy,” ROCKETMAN is a dream-like interpretation of Elton John’s incredible rise to success. Starring Taron Egerton (KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE) as Elton and Jamie Bell (BILLY ELLIOT) as his lyricist and collaborator Bernie Taupin, it tells story of an artistic friendship amidst the insanity of public life and self-destruction. 

No typical biopic, this film eschews the history books and favors playful invention over fact-checking. But instead of glorifying Elton, it shows all the ugliness and vulnerability of a real human being shoved into the limelight. Featuring colorful interpretations of his ‘70s hits (and outfits), ROCKETMAN is a freewheeling, joyful look at a difficult period in a rock legend’s brilliant career.

RYAN CABRERA & THOMAS IAN NICHOLAS

Join us Wednesday September 19th for a blast from the 90's past! 

After our screening of Rookie Of The Year - join us for two acoustic sets! One from our favorite Cub himself: Thomas Ian Nicholas, and one from Heartthrob Ryan Cabrera! 

About Ryan: 
You might think that you know RYAN CABRERA.
Sure, the platinum selling singer and songwriter is the architect behind ubiquitous smashes such as “On the Way Down,” “True” and “Shine On” as well as albums including 2004’s Take It All Away, which hit #8 on the Billboard Top 200, You Stand Watching [2005], and The Moon Underwater [2008]. However, get to know RYAN like never before on his newly released EP Wake Up Beautiful (Dynamite Music) and fifth full-length album due out later this year.

Stardom aside, it’s never ever been about image, media, or pomp and circumstance for CABRERA. It’s always come down to one thing: the music. It’s where everything starts...

About Thomas: 
Thomas is an American film actor, singer, musician, producer, director, and writer. Nicholas is best known for playing Henry Rowengartner in Rookie of the Year, Walt Disney in Walt Before Mickey and Kevin Myers in the American Pie film series.

Nicholas released his debut album, Without Warning, on January 15, 2008,[7] and his follow-up album, "Without Warning Acoustic" on February 28, 2009. Heroes Are Human, on June 1, 2010. His fourth release is a self-titled EP, released March 20, 2012, in which the first single "My Generation" is also on the American Reunion soundtrack album.[8] His fifth release is the EP Security released on April 8, 2014.

S***-Faced Shakespeare

September 18, 20167:00pm - 8:15pm$20 Advance Ticket

S***-Faced Shakespeare

PURCHASE TICKETS >>HERE<<


With more than 1,600 cans and over 450 bottles of beer consumed on stage, S​hit-faced Shakespeare®​​ has racked up impressive numbers. Ripping a page out of the ingeniously sloppy series D​runk History,​the theater troupe behind S​hit-faced Shakespeare®​ ​inserts an entirely inebriated cast member into an entirely serious production of A​Midsummer Night's Dream. ​Laugh-out-loud funny and completely interactive, the show has been selling out shows in the UK since 2010 and finally has made its way stateside.

With audiences dictating when the drunk actor must drink more, no two performances are ever the same. And lest you think it disrespectful, it's all based on the good 'ol days of the raucous, interactive and vibrant Elizabethan theater scene. The most fun, bawdy Shakespeare play you'll ever see happens at The Highball.

SHAWNEE KILGORE EP RELEASE PARTY w/ Special guest Joss Whedon

Joss Whedon’s Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron have rocked the Drafthouse screens, but now here’s your chance to see the premier of a brand new project fresh from the Whedonverse. 

Two years ago, while filming Avengers II, Joss found Austin folksinger Shawnee Kilgore on Kickstarter and backed her latest record, A Long and Precious Road. The two forged a friendship and creative partnership via email and began writing songs together. It wasn’t until their first single, Big Giant Me, came out four months later that they spoke on the phone for the first time. They decided to keep collaborating and see what came of it.

What came of it was a gorgeously crafted and heartbreakingly personal 6-song EP, as well as a breathtaking music video shot for the project’s title track, Back to Eden, featuring Richard Jenkins and Ashley Johnson. Join us for the video’s world premier followed by an in person Q&A with Shawnee and the man himself, Joss Whedon.  

After the showing you will be cordially invited to head next door to the Highball for a live album release show with Joss in attendence.

Six Pack Stories

There are over 4,200 breweries contributing over $55.7 billion to the U.S. economy. Needless to say, craft beer means business. Though, with this many breweries, the beer can no longer simply speak for itself, it has to stand out -- way before the consumer, the craft beer drinker, tastes it. This is where the art behind the beer has become such a driving force in the current state of craft beer. 

If you think an enticing logo, a brand, a label or merchandise takes moments to create with a few clicks in photoshop, you're hugely mistaken. There are hours of thought, research, science, and do-overs when creating the front facing part of the brewery. Watch some of the brains behind some of the brands that you know and love speak about their passions, showcase some of their proudest pieces of work, and go head to head in a mystical branding showcase.

Skip To The Soul: Ange K Band!

Skip to the Soul with Ange K Band!

About Ange K: 

When Ange Kogutz, vocalist for Matchmaker Band, doesn’t have words, she usually has a song. Schooled by her Mama’s amazing vinyl collection growing up and influenced by her multi-talented musical stepfather, Ange grew up singing into hairbrushes and broom handles with her many brothers and sisters along to timeless soul classics.  She expresses her deepest emotions through music, and loves the fact that it comforts, heals, uplifts, unites, and speaks to mankind. At weddings and parties, Ange loves to connect with the crowd, feeling part of a special day.

Originally from Alabama, Ange is a long-time resident of Austin. She is a fan of a variety of music genres, and has shared a stage or studio with many of Austin’s favorite musical artists, as well as national acts. Among a huge list of her collaborators too numerous to completely list are Mingo Fishtrap, Mike Farris, Susan Arbuckle Band, London Calling, Marc Eric, Will Taylor & Strings Attached, Steve Miller Band, and Boys II Men. She regularly performs in The Stapletones and, of course, Matchmaker Band.

Ange is blessed to be a full-time musician with a long-standing gospel brunch residency at Threadgill’s South and is active in the music ministries at Life Austin Church and Riverbend Church.

Skyrocket!

SKYROCKET! (formerly the K-TEL HIT MACHINE) plays AM gold from the 1970's, mixed with a few edgy album rock favorites from the 80's. This seven-piece band (six male, one female) takes its name from the series of compilation albums advertised on TV in the 70's, and much of the band's repertoire appeared on those records. If you're thinking "classic rock", think again. SKYROCKET! steers virtually clear of typical rock and dance standards driven into the ground by radio and karaoke, and breathes new life into old hits that made you smirk back then and make you howl today. If Jack Black and Jimmy Fallon formed a cover band, this would be it.

What makes SKYROCKET! unique is the fact that its members have all been firmly entrenched in Austin’s original music scene for years. The result is not just a cover act going through the motions, but a professional, street-wise band honoring their craft and heritage and having a ball while they’re at it. Their enthusiasm is infectious.

Sour Bridges

September 17, 20157:00pm - 10:00pmNO COVER

Sour Bridges

Founded in 2009, Austin-based Sour Bridges is a band that has turned into a tight-knit family. Established early on as a mainstay in Austin’s finest venues, the band has branched out in recent years to earn substantial airplay in the region and play roots music festivals UTOPiAfest, CMJ Music Marathon, SXSW, Daytrotter and more. 

Self-dubbed browngrass – think bluegrass on steroids – Sour Bridges is inspired by greats like Gram Parsons, The Band and The Byrds. The funky, rock-inspired group’s distinct sound starts with a steady drumbeat, layers on bluegrass instrumentation – banjo, guitar, bass, and fiddle – and tops off with electric guitar, keys, boots, and impressive harmonies. 

Hailing from as far away as Pennsylvania, Oklahoma and other parts of Texas, members include Bill Pucci (vocals, banjo, guitar), Matt Pucci (vocals, mandolin, lead guitar), Kat “Mama Kat” Wilkes (fiddle), Dalton Chamblee (drums), Jack Bridges (vocals, bass guitar) and Ben Morgan (keys). 

“We all met on the frets in Austin, Texas,” summed Honesdale, Pennsylvania-native and founding member Bill Pucci, who moved to the music mecca in 2007 along with brother Matt. The two grew up picking bluegrass style with family, including a grandfather who played and built banjos. 

Sour Bridges celebrates its third studio release, Sour Bridges (May 12, 2015). Produced at Austin’s Church House Studios, Bridges includes original songs – largely by Bill Pucci – that reflect on heartaches and hard times (“Dirt Poor”), greener pastures (“Fine Life,”) and picking yourself up again (“Carry On”). Previous albums include Catfish Charlie (2013) and the group's 2010 debut, Workin’ On Leavin'. 

In its music and its live shows, Sour Bridges members’ genuine love for playing and singing together comes through loud and clear. A college radio station, KTSW 89.9 compared the band to “your quirkiest, cutest, most musical talented friends showing up on your front porch to play some music.”

Black irish Texas 10pm-12am
Junkyard Mongrels 12:30pm-1am

More about Black Irish Texas:
Emerging from the local cut-throat and highly competitive music scene of Austin, comes Black Irish Texas. And out of the proclaimed live music capital of the world they have exploded on the scene like a whiskey drenched force to be reckoned with. They have shared the stage with such International acts as Dropkick Murphys, Flogging Molly, Social Distortion, and the Street Dogs just to name a few, as well as local Austin legends such as the Dicks and the Flametrick Subs.

The band started in 2004 after a few lineup changes and many tribulations, they have managed to keep their anything-but-common spaghetti western/Americana/punk infused Irish American act together just long enough to finally release their debut album “To Hell with the King.”

With backing from Jameson Irish whiskey and support from legions of local and regional fans they released their first full length album and have been running all over the country throwing their no holds barred Irish American party gaining devout followers everywhere they play.

Black Irish boast members of Austin favorite’s such as Mr. Lewis and the Funeral Five, Flatcar Rattlers, Los Hispanos,UK, The Bulemics, and Hipsterectomy just to name a few. With members from each of those bands bringing to the table their own particular styles and influences, your current line-up of James Fitzsimmons on guitar and vocal duties, Mark Maughmer II on fiddle, James Sheeron on drums, Shannon McMillan on upright bass and Bil David Zarate on banjo, you are basically looking at a powder keg lit by a few shots of Jameson. And what a site it is.

Do not, I repeat, do NOT try and pigeonhole these guys as an Irish pub drinking band, regurgitating overheard covers of “danny boy” and “whiskey in the jar” . In high demand at every venue from Stubb’s and Emo’s Austin to the Abbey pub in Chicago, Black Irish Texas is a coming to a venue near you. See what they’re doing at their website. www.blackirishtexas.com, and be on the look out for new releases roomered to release by the end of 2014..

SPHYNX!

September 8, 201710:00pm - 1:00amFREE!

SPHYNX!

These Austin, TX natives have been compared to pop icons like Prince and David Bowie and to newer groups like Phoenix and MGMT for good reason. The trio's vibrant live show has carved it's own niche in Austin, where they've sold out popular venues, charted on pop/alternative stations, and become a fixture of the music scene. This was demonstrated on February 13, 2014 when the band performed at City Hall and Mayor Lee Leffingwell proclaimed the day 'Sphynx Day' in Austin. 

Sphynx began touring heavily in 2011 and has since logged over 300 shows in 38 states, both headlining and supporting national acts like Jungle, Cut Copy, Spoon, Of Montreal, Tilly & The Wall, Wavves, and Stepdad. The trio's dance party grooves and glam-rock aesthetic have made them a festival favorite and landed them spots at ACL, SXSW, CMJ, Bunbury, Midpoint, Utopia Fest, Center of the Universe, Homegrown Fest, Chaos in Tejas, Fire Arts Fest and more. The live show has caught the attention of festival goers and journalists alike, receiving praise from USA Today, Nylon Magazine, Fuse, and Diffuser. 

The band has released 3 EPs and a concert LP and is currently recording new material.

"With the moves, the tunes, the energy, and the deft use of animal print, there’s no good reason why Sphynx shouldn’t be as big as the monument they’re named after."
-Austin-American Statesman, ACL Review

"Glam-rockers Sphynx are millennial's answer to Queen...This electro-pop trio could give Andrew W.K. a run for his money in a headbanging contest, while still hitting those falsettos and looking fabulous doing it." 
-Dallas Observer

"Never have men in fur so graciously whipped their hair back and forth."
-Diffuser, ACL Review

"Excited and excitable molecular electo pop."
-KEXP

STAY LOOSE: an indie-pop dance party

Stop! Look and listen! It’s time to strap on your best cardigan and prepare to break in the Highball dancefloor properly. Mark your calendars for September 14th and STAY LOOSE: an indie-pop dance party!

Belle & Sebastian frontman Stuart Murdoch’s new feature film GOD HELP THE GIRL is playing at the Alamo Drafthouse Lamar and we’re bringing you a safe place to meet with other B&S fans and celebrate the very genre that they have been at the top of for almost 20 years.   Sure, the emotional, orchestral songs that make you sway back and forth gently are great and all, but let’s focus on the true floorstompers from the Glasgow blokes and bloke-ettes along with all the other indie-pop bands you know and love to create a magical evening.   

Belle & Sebastian has come to mean an awful lot to people and sadly, they rarely make an appearance in Austin, so this dance party is the going to be THE place to absorb GOD HELP THE GIRL, pontificate on the best Camera Obscura album and to impersonate Murdoch’s gleeful on-stage gyrations in front of strangers.   Who knows- maybe you’ll fall in love?!

Self-proclaimed Belle & Sebastian superfan DJ GrossYall will be selecting the playlist and singing along all night long.   With The Smiths, The Go-Betweens, Orange Juice, all your favorite B&S songs- you’d be a cuckoo to miss it!

SXSW OPENER: DJ YODA - NO BADGE REQUIRED

March 14, 201610:00pm - 11:30pmFREE

SXSW OPENER: DJ YODA - NO BADGE REQUIRED

NO BADGE REQUIRED - FREE SHOW - NO RSVP NEEDED

U.S. PREMIERE! 

Embark on a cut, paste, scratch and mix odyssey into science fiction with 'one of the top DJs to see before you die' (Q Magazine), DJ Yoda, returning to the US for the first time in 2 years for this exclusive one-off celebration of sci-fi, geekdom and the very best music, all mixed LIVE. From Robocop to Back to the Future, from Star Wars to E.T., from TRON to Alien
(and some good 80s quality Arnie), embark with Yoda on the most entertaining visual and sonic trip in the world of sci-fi movies.

Pioneering a new entertainment art form, alloying hands-in-the-air clubbing with a night at the movies, DJ Yoda's AV shows are audio-visual anarchy, cutting the best Sci-Fi movie moments with 80s electro, or YouTube viral hits with contemporary hip-hop. One of the first DJs to turn his hand to rescoring classic films with the esteemed DJ Yoda Goes to the Movies series that began with his version of the Goonies in 2003, Yoda was commissioned by the British Film Institute to reprise his trailblazing ways. Presented as part of the BFI’s regular Sonic Cinema event, DJ Yoda Goes to the Sci-Fi Movies is a futuristic alliance of cutting edge music and cinema that cemented his reputation as the master of the form.

ABOUT DJ YODA
One of ‘The 10 DJs you must see before you die’ (Q Magazine)
One of 'The Top Three DJs in the World’ (Hip-Hop Connection magazine)

DJ Yoda is one of Britain’s most admired, original club DJs and an AV pioneer who is constantly pushing the possibilities of audio-visual manipulation. Encapsulating the very essence of good times, DJ Yoda has transformed clubbing as we know it, throwing down styles as diverse as Hip-Hop, Funk, Baltimore Club, Drum n Bass and even Country music, all cut-up with a awe-inspiring selection of film, TV show and You Tube visuals that elevate his sets to the uniquely sublime.

T-BIRD AND THE BREAKS

March 5, 20158:00pm - 11:00pmNO COVER

T-BIRD AND THE BREAKS

T Bird and the Breaks are a big, funky, band. Horns? Check. Female singers that swing-it-while-they-sing-it? Check. Fire-in-the-hole rhythm-section of drums, bass, guitar, and keys? Check. Gravel-voiced front-man who always leaves it on stage? Check.

Hailing from Austin, TX, T Bird And The Breaks play a style of dance music that has it's most basic and obvious roots in the Funk and Soul music of the late 1960's and early 1970's. It'll get you dancing. It'll make you sweat. It'll make you smile.

But...it can't be classified as strictly throw-back, retro, Funk/Soul. The original songs belie lyrical influences such as Beck. Or Bob Dylan. And the contemporary swagger of The Breaks' live show especially pays homage to the creativity and positivity of early and golden-age Hip-Hop. The band's “kitchen-sink-style” of music is evident on their cover of Shirley Ellis' 1965 R&B hit “The Clapping Song” in which they include verses from Tom Waits' “Clap Hands”.

It's a melting-pot of funk but one that people of all ages, and across musical genres, can dig. In the last few years they've been invited to play shows with artists as eclectic as The Flaming Lips, The Funky Meters, Sting, Robert Randolph and the Family Band, and Galactic.

2014 will see T Bird and the Breaks releasing their third studio album, “What It Is (Harmonism)”, and bringing their electric, tear-a-hole-in-it, funk-bomb of a live show to a stage near you.

Texas Thursday feat. FINGERPISTOL!

April 20, 20178:00pm - 10:30pmFREE!

Texas Thursday feat. FINGERPISTOL!

Fingerpistol is a three-time Austin Music Award winning country dance band from Austin, Texas combining tried and true country classics with crowd pleasing originals penned by Fingerpistol front man Dan Hardick, who spends the remainder of his time time working as an advice columnist for The Austin Chronicle and being father to three amazing daughters and a precocious rat terrier that he describes as an "emotional distress animal." Rounding out the rest of Fingerpistol are vocalist/aesthetician Meg "Amarillo" Bodi, guitar God/fly fisherman Landis Armstrong, drummer/aquatic scientist Jill Csekitz and alternate drummer/creative visionary Andrew C. Gerfers; bassist, band genius, and bush pilot Sam Wilson, and pedal steel guitarist and genuine country music legend Neil Flanz, who was inducted into the Steel Guitar Hall of Fame in 2016.

Fingerpistol won’t set their instruments on fire, play guitar behind their backs, or do flying, acrobatic dives into teeming mosh pits (mosh pits?), but they will play some fun music, sing some nice harmonies, and keep your toes tapping. Sure, they’re probably not the next Rascal Flatts or Florida Georgia Line, but give them credit for sticking it out well beyond their expiration date; for continuing to navigate the treacherous gauntlet of the music business with a naive sense of adventure and optimism. Maybe someday they’ll award a Grammy for that, but don’t hold your breath. Instead, jump on the Fingerpistol bandwagon.

Texas Thursday starring FINGERPISTOL

When Fingerpistol isn't playing at the Nugget in Vegas they're out cruising the back roads of the Texas Hill Country looking for roadkill that's still tender enough to barbecue. They also drink a lot of tequila and go through a staggering amount of limes - enough to give you mouth sores just considering it. Yes, they’re a little bit older than your average bar band, but what they lack in youth and beauty they make up for in enthusiasm and gratitude - just like an ugly cheerleader or a stray dog.  Musically speaking...is there room for improvement? Of course there is. Fingerpistol won’t blow you away with jaw dropping guitar pyrotechnics, flashy drum solos or complicated orchestral arrangements; they won’t set their instruments on fire, play guitar behind their backs or do flying, acrobatic stage dives into sweaty, teeming mosh pits (mosh pits?), but they will play some fun music, sing some nice harmonies, and keep your toes tapping - or maybe your boots scootin’ if that’s the way you swing.

Singer-songwriter Dan Hardick and girl singer Suzee Brooks (AKA “Hondo” and “Teensy”) started out harmonizing at family campfires which led to harder stuff: Karaoke bars, open mics, hootenannies, song circles - that kind of thing. Eventually, Dan asked Suzee to join the band and Fingerpistol got a little girlier...just a Teensy bit. Onstage Dan and Suzee are irrepressible raconteurs, occasional fabulists, and their own worst critics...why not? It’s something they’re good at. So maybe they’re not Conway and Loretta, George and Tammy, or Gram and Emmylou, but give them credit for sticking it out well beyond their expiration date; for continuing to navigate the treacherous gauntlet of the music business with a sense of adventure and optimism, and for being brave enough to be “never was” musicians who are old enough to be mistaken for has-beens. Maybe someday there will be a Grammy for that, but don’t hold your breath.

Come check out a live show and get to know country music legend pedal steel player Neil Flanz, the pride of Ft. Worth, guitarist  Bill Terry, band genius and bassist Sam Wilson, and God stomping drummer Jill Csekitz … and of course Hondo and Teensy. You’ll be glad you did.

TEXAS THURSDAY starring TEDDY LONG

 Austin, TX based singer /songwriter, Teddy Long got his first guitar at 14 and almost immediately began writing songs. Though it wasn't until 2006 that a drunken coin toss would lead to him to Austin and ultimately to the start of a career as a singer/songwriter. "It wasn't an option, where I come from- playing guitar and singing songs is a hobby you do in the basement or if you're lucky, you get to play on the weekends in some little corner bar for tips and beer. It wasn't something you do as a career". 

Teddy Long has built a strong and loyal following in Austin. He has shared the stage with likes of Jack Ingram, Paula Nelson, Django Walker and  Texas favorites, Two Tons of Steel. With his sights set on the recording of a new EP, 2016 will be the year of Teddy Long.

Texas Thursday: HORSE OPERA

Started in 2006 by Jimmy Deveney, Horse Opera (which takes its name from Deveney's penchant for the old cowboy movies of the 30's & 40's) puts their own brand on familiar musical stylings running the gamut from traditional country and bluegrass, to folk and Americana with clever and insightful lyrics written by both Deveney (lead guitar/vocals) and Howdy Darrell on rhythm guitar/vocals. Deveney led the band through several lineup changes as well as a handful of regional and national tours before the current lineup of Chris "Howdy" Darrell on (guitar/mandolin/vocals), Rick Watson (bass), Heather Rae Johnson (fiddle/vocals), and Scotti Iman (drums) released their sophomore album in September 2013.  Two singles from the self-titled release were featured on Austin's "Songwriters Across Texas" TV show: Deveney's "One to Say Goodbye" and Darrell's "Spinning My Wheels". 

The group made their official SXSW debut in March 2013 to a packed house at Austin's renowned White Horse Honky Tonk, on a showcase featuring many of the top acts of the local country scene. Horse Opera then followed up with two successful tours featuring dates at 2013's Viva Big Bend Festival and thePinedale Fine Arts Council Showcase in Pinedale, WY.

The Award Winning - GEEKS WHO DRINK PUB QUIZ! w/John and James

There are no less than 350 pub quizzes held in the Austin area on a given week, but THIS is the best of the best. Hosted by noted Z-list celebrities John Smith and James Pound since 2010, the Geeks quiz at The Highball is 2-ish hours of bloodsport quiz action, absurd side games and drink drink drink. PLUS! It's the only Geeks Who Drink event in the country with a $100 CASH PRIZE EVERY WEEK!

Okay, we’re biased. But see what these fans have to say on Yelp:
"They really have it all: attentive servers so we don't have to risk missing questions, funny and awesome trivia hosts, and extra events during trivia that afford us opportunities to win cool stuff." -- Valerie G.
"The hosts were hilarious, and even as a non-geek (I'm clueless when it comes to Lord of the Rings, obscure geography facts, etc), I always had a pretty good time. " -- Jenna W.
"Trivia night is awesome. The Geeks who Drink put on a great show. My girlfriends and I had a rocking time." -- Lacey W.
