We also now have an Instagram! We won't really be using it to post upcoming events--that's what this newsletter is for--but we may post photos of stuff when we do it.
If you're not already a subscriber to this newsletter, click here. Also, please support us by forwarding this email to your friends who enjoy things like listening to music and leaving the house sometimes.
We have some in-person events on the horizon, but until then you can catch us streaming every week. No Lights No Lycra Austin happens every Monday at 8pm CT. This week Brian's No Humans Allowed radio show dealt with 00s synthpop. You can stream the show on KPISS.fm and listen live to the show on Wednesdays at 10pm CT. You can check playlists and more info for both of these below the events.

No Humans Allowed 056
Italo Not Italo
This week's No Humans Allowed was all about 00s synthpop influenced by italo disco (synthy dance music from Italy in the 80s). It touches upon some of the big names from the electroclash era, the rise of music blogs, a couple of contributors to the Drive soundtrack's synthwave goodness, and a lot of less well known moments in between.

What is No Lights No Lycra?
Austin's weekly judgment-free, substance-free, high-impact dance thing in the dark. We stream every Monday at 8pm CT. It's a DJ night that's not at the club, a workout that's not at the gym, a personal meditation that's anything but silent. Read more about us in the Austin Chronicle.
How do we choose which events to feature?
Honestly, it's pretty random. We might include anything in Austin that we, personally, would conceivably want to go to, generally excluding normal concerts, comedy shows, and movie showtimes because there are many other good resources for finding those. This list is by no means exhaustive; it's just stuff that caught our eye this week. If you have an event that you want us to consider including, send it over.
Who are we?
We make this newsletter. We put on No Lights No Lycra each week. We do some other stuff here and there. We love going out to creative events in Austin, and we want you to join us. Visit us at liteandbriteatx.com.
