Eeyore’s Birthday Party

April 28 in Pease Park
A costume and sunscreen are really the only requirements at Eeyore’s. For 49 years, this event has remained Austin incarnate, staffed by volunteers and benefiting nonprofits. eeyores.org.

David Sedaris

April 23, 7 p.m. Paramount Theatre
It’s one thing to read David Sedaris; his dark satire manages to make death by cigarettes, meth addiction and drowning mice seem quintessentially American. It’s a completely different thing to be read to by David Sedaris. Sandwiched between his absurdity and irreverence are insights in to our lifestyle on par with Updike or Roth. He recollects trivial events with a careful comedic restraint, a task that, as many writers know, is near impossible. In person, he’s smallish, humble and astonishingly unpretentious, and being able to place him, his nuances and his voice in the context of his stories will give his work a dimension you’ll come to depend on. austintheatre.org.

Austin 10/20

April 15, 8 a.m.
A 10-mile run is hard, but the Austin 10/20 makes it easier by placing 20 bands along the route. Unlike other races, this course is flat and fast, weaving around the hills that give many out-of-towners trouble. The event is fully supported by plenty of SAG wagons along for the ride. Finish the day with a concert by Everclear and a barbecue picnic in a beer garden (lighter options available for the sensitive of stomach). Visit the Austin 10/20 website for a full list of bands and registration details.
