6 p.m. Aug. 14. Free. 701 W. Riverside Dr. 512-474-45664, thelongcenter.org
Well, summer is pretty much over, but let's finish it up with one last Sound & Cinema on the Long Center lawn, shall we? The final installment of this popular summer event, which pairs beloved films with Texas artists playing live, combines the 1990s flick "10 Things I Hate About You" with music from Walker Lukens. "10 Things," a modern retelling of William Shakespeare's "Taming of the Shrew," stars Heath Ledger and Julia Stiles. Come early for dinner from one of the on-site food trucks. Folding chairs and blankets are permitted.
2. Particle Kid at Stubb’s indoor
8:30 p.m. doors Aug. 14. $10-$12. 801 Red River St. stubbsaustin.com
Micah Nelson’s dad, Willie, keeps cranking out records at an age-defying pace, and his brother, Lukas, is soaring high with a widely acclaimed, Americana-based album this year. Micah’s music has always been a little more out there, and that’s true on his new Particle Kid release, “Window Rock,” which weaves together elements of indie, punk, folk, psychedelia, noise rock and more. New Fumes open. — Peter Blackstock
3. "Ann" at Zach Theatre
7:30 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday, 2:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday through Sept. 8. $30-$189. 202 S. Lamar Blvd. zachtheatre.org
Tough as nails, funny as hell, "Ann" as produced once again by Zach Theatre is an intimate, no-holds-barred portrait of Ann Richards, the legendary governor of Texas. This time, she'll be played by "Friday Night Lights" actress Libby Villari (rather than the Emmy Award-winning Holland Taylor, who also wrote the play and first performed it in 2011). She brings to life a complex, colorful and captivating character bigger than the state from which she hailed.
4. Don't Try This at Home: "The Blues Brothers" Beer Dinner
7 p.m. Aug. 14. $40.41. Alamo Mueller, 1911 Aldrich St., Suite 120. 512-572-1425, drafthouse.com
Shake a tail feather for this themed Lagunitas beer dinner. The Alamo Drafthouse has put together a series of daring, explosive and stunt-heavy films to celebrate the release of Quentin Tarantino's "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood." Here's the next one, starring John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd. Each Alamo beer dinner features three courses, and this one in particular will have dishes such as gazpacho-style chilled soup paired with the Lagunitas Pils.
