“Shaun of the Dead” Pub Run. This February, zombies are invading the Paramount Theatre. But the Paramount already has a solution — drink beer and run. Participants will meet there and run to the American-Statesman parking lot for lots of zombie fun and a pint of liquid courage from Austin Beerworks. The Dead Music Capital Band will provide macabre music, and there will be food and a costume contest. Afterward, head back to the theater for a screening of “Shaun of the Dead.” 6 p.m. doors Feb. 22. $7-$21. 713 Congress Ave. austintheatre.org.
St. Vincent at ACL Live. The eccentric art rocker also known as Annie Clark is riding high on the release of “Masseduction,” her most broadly accessible album to date. It’s a powerful platter that combines her incisive lyricism with creative and surprisingly hooky compositions. The album cements Clark’s place as one of the guitar greats of her generation. The new tour is called “Fear the Future,” but if you’re a fan of powerful women claiming their rightful space at the top of rock’s pantheon, there’s nothing to fear at all. 8 p.m. Feb. 22-23. $41-$51. 310 Willie Nelson Blvd. acl-live.com. — Deborah Sengupta Stith
Emmer & Rye Chef Collaboration Dinner Series. The Rainey Street restaurant is teaming up with top chefs from around the country starting with this inaugural dinner on Feb. 22 with Trevor Moran, former chef of the Catbird Seat in Nashville. Each of the guest chefs will take on one-third of the menu in Emmer & Rye’s usual a la carte and dim sum service, and chances are, each dinner will be vastly different because the chefs each have their own take on cooking. There are no pre-sale tickets, but reservations are encouraged. 5 p.m. Feb. 22. 51 Rainey St. emmerandrye.com.
