Well, April came and went, didn’t it? But hold tight: it’s not over yet. This weekend and next is jam-packed with true Austin action. Let’s close this month out right.
We’ve got three days left of Fusebox Festival. This free interactive festival has taken over the city and there are great events happenin’ this weekend like Bring Your Own Record Listening Party, Sewn on the Street, and a Frito Pie Tour. If you don’t feel like making an appearance, Physical Plant Theater has created a slow-motion story that happens via text message for the next six months. All you gotta do is subscribe to Computer Simulation of the Ocean. It’s pretty interesting so far!
If you’ve got some extra bucks lying around and dig eating & drinking for reasons other than just surviving, check out the Austin Food & Wine Festival. In addition to your classic food and wine tastings, there will be live music (of course), book signing, grilling demos and more! There are a couple of after-parties too, so party on, Garth.
How many festivals are we allowed to have in this city at once? Moontower Comedy & Oddity Festival is back again so we can crack up until we crack open. Grab a badge, day pass or individual tickets quick, cause the party ends Saturday!
Of course this Saturday is Eeyore’s 51st Birthday Party at Pease Park. If you’ve never been, you really owe it to yourself to immerse yourself in what little weirdness Austin has left. It’s free, it’s kid-friendly (for a bit), and it’s got a little bit of everything for everyone. Grab your hula hoop & body paint and meet me at Pease Park! Runs from 11am till it’s dark in the park.
Don’t exhaust yourself there though, because I want to see your shiny pretty faces at Cheer Up Charlie’s (remember, they are on Red River now) for Vagina’s Maga*Zine Launch Party. The action happens at 9pm with live music, lots of goodies, and of course, Vagina Zine live & in color. PS: Flip through the pages ‘til you see my poem and let me know what you think! I’ll see ya on the dance floor.
If ya dig what you read, come check me & a slew of amazing poets out at the BedPost Confessions Poetry Show! We start rockin’ the mic at 8pm on Saturday, May 3rd and if you don’t get chills, I’ll give you your money back. $10 at the Spiderhouse Ballroom!
Let’s go Say Yes!
