Cruiserweight at the Parlor. Hey, wait; didn’t this band just break up? Well, yes, but lead singer Stella Maxwell and guitarist and backing vocalist Urny Maxwell are playing an intimate acoustic show at Austin’s hippest pizza place largely to debut new songs from a workin-progress children’s musical that’s been Stella’s pet project for more than a year. Expect a vintage Cruiserweight tune or two, but most of the evening should feature new material — giddy, charming new material. With the Tattle Tales and Closet Drama. 8 p.m. Free. 100 North Loop Blvd. www. myspace.com/theparlor.
