What would happen if Sherlock Holmes and Monty Python had a Broadway baby? You'd get this smash-hit of a comedy. In "The Play That Goes Wrong" you're welcomed to opening night of "The Murder at Haversham Manor," a production where things are quickly going from bad to utterly disastrous — with an unconscious leading lady, a corpse that can’t play dead and actors who trip over everything (including their lines).
2. Shacksbury Harvest Party at Easy Tiger
5 p.m. Oct. 23. Free. 603 E. Sixth St. easytigeraustin.com/calendar/.
Get into the autumnal spirit with one of the ultimate beverages for fall: cider. Vermont's Shacksbury craft cider, that is; wrap your hands around a Vermonter tall boy for $7, or kick back with a flight of 4 ciders (Rosé, Dry, Arlo and Deer Snacks Volume 2) for $10. Easy Tiger shipped in a batch of wild apples from Vermont and will be preparing a special Harvest Board (sliced andouille, baguette, wild apple slaw and apple butter) and Tarte Normande (apple tart with cream filling) just for the occasion.
3. Lemon Twigs at Antone’s
7 p.m. doors Oct. 23. $20. 305 E. Fifth St. antonesnightclub.com.
Winners of South by Southwest’s coveted Grulke Prize for Developing U.S. Act in 2017, the Long Island, N.Y., band fronted by brothers Brian and Michael D’Addario returned to play ACL Fest later that year. The brothers are barely 20, but their understanding of music seems encyclopedic, as they incorporate everything from classic 1960s pop to Broadway theater music to modern indie rock into the songs on 2016’s “Do Hollywood” and this year’s “Go to School.” Jungle Green opens. — Peter Blackstock
4. Tuesday Twilights Featuring Fortlandia
9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays in October. $6-$10. The Wildflower Center, 4801 La Crosse Ave. facebook.com/events/318049645415279/.
The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center is extending its hours every Tuesday in October so that visitors can explore the new Fortlandia, a collection of unique forts by local architecture and design firms, individual artists and students from UT. Bring a picnic dinner, take a twilight stroll, swing into the sunset, and check out Fortlandia in a whole new light. Each fort has been custom-built to evoke memories of childhoods spent escaping into nature and daydreaming outdoors.
