Fans of Drunk History and all its slurred infotainment will fall over laughing at Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare, where an entirely serious Shakespeare play is performed with one entirely inebriated cast member. For the last six years, Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare has been performed from the darkest corners and diviest bars in the U.K. to sold-out runs at the Edinburgh and Brighton Fringe festivals. Whether they're spontaneously belting out the Dawson's Creek theme song or embracing the occasional wardrobe malfunction, you never know what inebriated inspiration might strike these thespians during this side-splitting, raucous and interactive show. So, brush up on thy Bard knowledge, and get thee to The North Door in Austin for a drunken twist on Romeo and Juliet, because this is Shakespeare as you never knew you wanted to see him before.

You might not have heard about the hottest new nightlife trend out of NYC -- especially since it involves keeping the sounds to yourself -- but it's called Quiet Clubbing, and it's now in Austin at The Belmont. This cutting-edge party offers three live DJs, each spinning a different mix, which you can access via your free-to-rent wireless headphones. Choose from Top 40 dance hits, hip-hop/R&B or '80s/'90s/2000s throwbacks, and switch between channels at any time. The volume's adjustable, too, so you can go as loud or as mellow as you like, and each set features LED lights, so you'll know which channel the cutie next to you just picked.
Step into Trixie Mattel's pink cowboy boots and see the world through the iconic eyes of everybody's favorite doll and the winner of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars. She's bringing her new one-woman comedy show Now With Moving Parts to Austin and you can expect to see the life-size legend dig deep into her psyche with all her customary sass and class. When she takes the stage at Emo's, you'll hear a mixture of music and surrealist comedy that only Trixie Mattel could hot glue together -- guitar picking, razor-sharp reads and hair teased to the sky.
