Pink Floyd tribute, "So You Think You Can Dance," other tickets on sale
You know the year is going by quickly when you’re suddenly buying tickets for 2015 shows. But when it’s a performance worth seeing, snatching up tickets in advance is a good idea. The Pink Floyd tribute "Bricks in the Wall: The Sight and Sound of Pink Floyd" will be stopping by Emo’s Jan. 17 for a night that will bring nostalgia to the Baby Boomer generation and re-install the love for the band to the Millennial generation. "Bricks," a nine-piece tribute, re-creates the live Pink Floyd concert experience with a gigantic circular video screen, light effects and a laser light show operated by none other than one of Roger Waters’ tour engineers. Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10 am.
America may love to dance, but they love to watch others dance even more — especially on television. As the 11-time Primetime Emmy Award winning show "So You Think You Can Dance" proved, there is nothing more entertaining than professional dancers battling for the top place in a competition. This fall, the show is captivating audiences on a live tour across North America to celebrate its 11th season, which will feature their Top 10 finalists. The year’s biggest dance event will take place on Oct. 5 at ACL Live; tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m.

The return of Wanderlust
Wanderlust, that smooth-as-honey mashup of yoga, music and adult beverages, is returning to Austin in November.
Last year marked the first Austin edition of the event, typically staged at mountain or beach resorts. Fans embraced it, streaming into yoga classes led by globe-trotting teachers and local favorites alike, sipping smoothies (and wine) and spreading a generally peaceful vibe.
The event will take place at Wanderlust Yoga studio, 206 East Fourth Street, and the Brazos Hall event space next door, which has a rooftop deck.
