Red Dress Run
August 10 | As its popularity exploded in recent years, it wasn't always easy to spot the "run" in the Red Dress Run. This year, the two-mile jaunt through the French Quarter and Marigny starts at 11 a.m. Saturday and there's music by Dash Rip Rock and Cowboy Mouth afterward. There also are two other weekend runs for devoted Hash House Harriers.

Octopus Project
Tue. Aug. 6 | Keeping Austin weird since 1999, electronic-rock demigods the Octopus Project finally have an album, July's mind-altering Fever Forms (Peek-a-Boo), to stand beside their strobed, lobe-stroking live shows. Man or Astro-man? opens at One Eyed Jacks.

Air Sex Championships
Sat. Aug. 10 | Air Sex Championship creator Chris Trew saw his act end very prematurely on America's Got Talent, but competitors at the fifth annual event can expect their full two minutes to impress the judges with solo routines of their best moves. At One Eyed Jacks.

Dirty Linen Night
Sat. Aug. 10 | More than a decade ago, Dirty Linen Night was started by Royal Street art galleries representing local artists. The annual evening of art openings has grown into a block party stretching across Royal Street and to other shops and galleries in the French Quarter.
