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

This is a quiet week for events, which honestly makes it even more remarkable that there are two different Edgar Allan Poe-themed events. He was born on January 19. You know who else was born on January 19, albeit 137 years later? Dolly Parton, whose birthday you can also celebrate this week. Unrelated to anyone's birthday (as far as we can tel), there is also a party with a dress code of "formal and/or insect attire. Preferably both." This is a tremendous idea. The mere act of dressing in formalwear and/or insectwear elevates any event by a sold 20%.

Let's do fun stuff!

P.S. While Austin is in Stage 5 of Covid risk, we're returning to our practice of adding cacti next to events that we know are outdoors. Use this information as you see fit.

No Humans Allowed #87
"Song of the Spreadsheet Jockeys"

In the name of spreadsheet jockeys everywhere, No Humans Allowed was be slinging productivity jams and vintage computer gifs in a prodigious and extremely proficient manner. Well-ordered jams and rows and columns full of synths await therein.

Broadcasts live every Wednesday at 6pm CT on, with over 80 episodes now streamable in the archives on topics like and Beach Simulations, Roomba dance parties, undersea adventures + Cyber Texas.
Follow Lite + Brite on Instagram to keep up with our adventures. Recent weeks brought us to the Muttcracker (Sweet!) at the Vortex, the holiday lights show at Mozart's, and a makers fair (with drag Santa!) at the Little Gay Shop.
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
