Hello, what's up, and welcome to the Lite + Brite newsletter.

Some important announcements this week! (Well, "important" is probably an overstatement in the grand scheme of the world, but you know what we mean.) Announcement one is that No Lights No Lycra, our dance party in the dark, is back at West China Tea on Monday after five-week break! More details on that below.

Announcement two is that we're running a giveaway for two free tickets to Rocket Cinema's Halloweekend screening of Rocky Horror Picture Show, featuring a shadow cast performance, plus sing-alongs, cabaret, and more. Click here to enter, and refer your friends to get bonus entries. This screening will be one of many extremely stellar spooky events happening over the coming ten days. Scroll down to see so many more, and obviously check out our newsletter next week which will be JAM-PACKED WITH SPOOK.

Let's do fun stuff!

DJ Stuff

No Lights No Lycra, our dance party in the dark, is back! We'll be at West China Tea on October 25 for an evening of non-judgmental, low-stress, and substance-free indie, electro, disco, new wave, guilty pleasures, and more stuff you can move to. This is our first event since our fabulous collab with Art Island last month, and we're so glad to be back. DJ Brian Blackout has music he's been dying to play for you. Will some of it be spooky? The odds seem good! And if you can't make it this week, then keep your eye on this newsletter and/or like NLNLATX on Facebook or Instagram for updates about future darkened dance nights.

In the online world, No Humans Allowed, Brian's weekly internet radio show on, got into the Halloween spirit early with a special Italoween episode full of creepy italo disco. Stream it from the Kpiss archives here.

No Humans Allowed 076
They Only Come Out at Night

As far as we’re concerned, Halloween should be celebrated all month long. This week on No Humans Allowed, italo-ween gets here early with a special edition entitled THEY ONLY COME OUT AT NIGHT. Expect all the creepy crawly italo disco you can handle.

Stream it from the KPISS archives here

What is No Humans Allowed?
Brian Blackout's weekly robots-themed radio show on internet station Machine vibes 4 machines. Songs for robots, androids, mandroids, cyborgs, AIs, cylons, skinjobs, roombas, wifi routers, smart devices, anything colored Bondi blue, and virtual assistants. Humans not required. Broadcasts live every Wednesday at 10pm CT on, with over 50 episodes now streamable in the archives on topics like and Beach Simulations, Roomba dance parties, concrete jungles + Cyber Texas.
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. (We especially recommend Showlist for live music, dance.atx for DJs, and 101+ Weird Austin Things to Do for exactly what it sounds like). 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
