Editor’s note: This article was originally published April 25, 2014
Bob Schneider 12-hour show at Saxon Pub. You could make an argument that Bob Schneider is Austin’s most overexposed artist; this month alone, he’s had art and video events and played a major festival, all leading up to this marathon event where he’ll play all day and all of the night, doing his own material and never repeating a song. Bob overload? Perhaps, but then again, if the audience will support such an indulgence, it’s hard to fault him for taking advantage — and, at the very least, he’s finding creative ways to extend his reach. Limited tickets for the entire affair are already sold out, but you can still get tickets to two-hour chunks. $22.75. Noon, 2 p.m., 4 p.m., 6 p.m., 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. 1320 S. Lamar Blvd. thesaxonpub.com. — P.B.
D.A.M.E. at Vinyl. The Down Ass Mamas Elevatin’ are back for their monthly throw down and this time it’s the Taurus edition. DJ Shani, who’s celebrating a birthday, plays city-slicker house music while DJ Mahealani drops old school hip-hop and R&B faves. Meanwhile, Queen Deelah, the ATX hip hop scene’s secret weapon, drops knowledge on the mic while photographers from Blue Inferno Creative capture the event for posterity. No cover. 9 p.m. 607 Trinity St. — D.S.S.
