Cornyation
$15-$45, Tue. April 23 - Fri. April 26, 7pm and 10pm, Majestic Theater, 226 E Houston St fiestacornyation.com
If you’re not sure what Cornyation in, let this be an introduction: their fans are called Corn Holes. Self-described as “cheap, raunchy, and ready to party,” Cornyation is kind of like a satirical review of current and local affairs. We mean events, not who’s getting with who, of course. With Cornyation, who knows.

Sat 1/20-Sun 1/21Monster Jam
Monster Jam Sunday! Sunday! Sunday! (Or, sure, Saturday also, but how often do you get to do the monster-truck-guy voice about an actual monster truck show happening on a “Sunday! Sunday! Sunday!”?) Witness some of the biggest damn trucks you ever saw in your life aggressively fighting for dominance like skunk apes in heat. Then after you’ve found a spot in the parking lot, head inside the Alamodome and watch 10,000 pound leviathans with names like El Toro Loco, War Wizard, and freaking Grave Digger give the owners of the jacked-up crew cabs outside brand new inferiority complexes, wreaking methanol-fueled havoc in races and audience-judged stunt competitions that are sure to produce veritable buttloads of both sound and fury. Might as well name one of those trucks “Little Pink Houses” because, as John Cougar Mellencamp sings, “ain’t that America?” $15-$169, 7pm Saturday, 3pm Sunday; Alamodome, 100 Montana St., (210) 207-3663.

‘Doing Werk’
“Werk. Hustle. Sleep. Repeat.” That’s the motto of artist Raul Gonzalez, whose drawings, prints and dance performances often center on the idea of work and physical labor. First exhibited at Austin’s grayDUCK Gallery in November, Gonzalez’s solo show “Doing Werk” comes to Freight Gallery for Second Saturday. In this latest series, Gonzalez draws from his experiences as a stay-at-home father as well as working constructions jobs with his own father. Included in this show are the artist’s paintings on concrete fragments (taken from actual construction sites) depicting workers in action. In the accompanying exhibition catalog, Gonzalez explains, “No one walks up to these workers and says ‘Thank you for the road,’ or for the basic infrastructure that keeps the nation safe and mobile.” Challenging preconceived notions about what it means to be an artist and the son of Mexican immigrants, Gonzalez’s work is also an homage to the overworked and underpaid everyman. Free, 7-11pm (performance at 8pm), Freight Gallery and Studios, 1913 S. Flores St., (210) 331-4382. — MA
