August. Constant humidity sweater and the feeling that you’ll never feel a chill on your skin ever again. Shed the still-in-the-middle-of-summer woes with free comedy and music courtesy of Austin’s art underground. Discover your new favorite Austin band or, hey, come celebrate ones already sitting at the top of your list.
Cumbia Nuevowavers Como Las Movies headline this month’s bill of diverse sounds with rock-of-all-flavors outfit Jeremiah Jackson. Nick Saverino, one of Austin’s premier comics, starts off the night to replace your endless sweat with some joke-induced tears. Your face will still be wet.
Entry is free and all ages are welcome. A variety of Independence beer will be available for purchase to guests 21+. Food will be available for purchase at the taproom’s onsite food truck Crossroads: Farm to Truck.
DISCLAIMER: Comics often tell jokes rife with adult humor. Viewer discretion is advised
Como Las Movies:

Join us for a great time and to support this great cause.
‘Tis officially the calm before the SX storm. While wise advice would be to take it easy tonight, and rest up for all that’s in store… that wouldn’t make for a very exciting blog post. What the heck, life is short, let’s start the weeklong party now.
Independence Brewing is going to be on Rainey Street tonight hosting a ‘White Rabbit Pub Crawl.’ You’re not required to drink White Rabbit but if you’re partaking in the pub crawl they encourage you to give it a try.
Check in at Craft Pride and grab your crawl card, and if you get your card stamped at three of the four locations, you’ll be rewarded with a swanky White Rabbit glass.
When: Today, March 6th
1st stop: 6-7 pm Craft Pride – We’re kicking things off proper with a cask of White Rabbit with lavender and pink peppercorns
