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

Okay, so you know that ACL is happening this weekend. That is not what we're here for. Did you also know that there's a probably unpermitted party happening on or perhaps near a bridge? Did you know there's a comedy show feat. guest stars from Party World Rasslin'? Did you know that Georgetown is having something called "POPPtober Fest" (I don't know why it's called that; something about poppies, maybe?) and it involves our favorite type of event, a PET PARADE? Did you know that if animals parading is too slow for you, you can also watch animals RACING at a brewery? ACL is great, but have you ever gone to a chill drinks thing called torn ACL? We're just saying, sure, ACL is a thing, but it's not the ONLY thing. Here's another thing: reminding the Texas legislature, yet again, that women deserve healthcare and bodily autonomy! Hope y'all kept your marching shoes handy!

Although we are now in Stage 4, we are for the moment continuing to use a little cactus emoji 🌵to indicate events that we know are outdoors. The other listed events might be outdoors, but a cactus means we are confident in their outdoorsness. Use this as a guide to help decide what events feel safe for you at whatever level of risk you're currently comfortable taking on.

Let's do fun stuff!

DJ Stuff

After a fabulous event with Art Island (pics here!), we are taking a few weeks off from No Lights No Lycra, our dance party in the dark, and will be back at West China Tea on October 25. From there we intend to return to a more regular schedule as the Covid case count (hopefully) continues its downward trend. Keep your eye on this newsletter and/or like NLNLATX on Facebook or Instagram for updates about future dance nights.

In the online world, No Humans Allowed, Brian's weekly internet radio show on, paid tribute to the waning last days of summer a la Don Henley's classic "Boys of Summer," only with a robotic twist. Stream it from the Kpiss archives here.

No Humans Allowed 073
The Bots of Summer

This week on No Humans Allowed we watch as the last dregs of summer slowly peter out, soundtracked with a panoply of wistful sunset excursions selected by our crack team of waterproof beachbots who seem extremely partial to DJ edits for some reason.

This past week took us to a night of PowerPoints on guilty pleasures at the Museum of Human Achievement; an afternoon makers' market at Austin Creative Reuse Center, and an evening live-band mashup concert at the Arboretum. Read this newsletter to find out about these things before they happen, and check the Lite + Brite Instagram to see how it went down.
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
