Fans of "Drunk History" and all its slurred education will fall over laughing at "Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare", which combines an entirely serious Shakespeare play with an entirely inebriated cast member. For the last six years, "Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare" has been performed in the darkest corners and diviest bars in the U.K., and now the cast has brought the good time to Austin. Side-splitting, raucous and completely interactive, the show is fresh off sell-out runs at the Edinburgh and Brighton Fringe festivals, where cast members drink beer, wine and whiskey on stage, drunkenly sing the "Dawson's Creek" theme song and occasionally (accidentally, of course) bare a nipple or two. Brush up on your Shakespeare knowledge and head down to The North Door, because this is the Bard as you never knew you wanted to see him before. [less-]

You've seen those crowds pop up at block parties, beer gardens and other massive public gatherings with whimsically gigantic headphones. They're usually dancing their hearts out -- to seemingly complete silence. You can be a part of the party that's happening inside the headphones with Quiet Events. Quiet Clubbing is a cutting-edge party that offers three live DJs, each spinning a different mix, which you can access via your free-to-rent wireless headphones. Each headset has a color LED that shows what channel you are listening to, so you can dance with those listening to the same DJ as you. Choose from Top 40, rap/R&B/reggae or '80s/'90s/EDM, and switch between them at any time. If you want to talk to someone, just take off your headphones. There's no loud music to shout over. Quiet Events has hosted a ton of booming quiet clubbing outdoor extravaganzas and bar crawls at picturesque locations like the Brooklyn Bridge, rooftop bars and cruise ships. Now, they've decided to extend the fun to Austin. You too can enter a new world as soon as you slip on the iconic light-up headphones. [less-]
