Hello, what's up, and welcome to the Lite + Brite newsletter.
There are lots of opportunities to acquire new stuff this weekend, whether it's witchy stuff, vintage stuff, or VHS tapes. Mesmerize is back with their first party in 550 days (but who's counting), and Sad Girls Only is back with their first sad drag show in we don't know how many days since it's not in their event copy, but surely at least 400.
This week also brings us a floating concert and the opportunity to win up to $500 in exchange for impersonating Matthew McConaughey. We are not going to enter this contest because we don't even know how to spell 'McConaughey.' You'd think they'd make you pass a McConaughey spelling test before they let you move to Austin, but somehow we snuck in here undetected.

We're working on some in person events on the horizon but until then you can catch us streaming every week. No Lights No Lycra Austin will be back on Monday at 8pm CT for our regular weekly programming. Brian's No Humans Allowed radio show this week went back to B.A.S.I.C. You can stream the show on KPISS.fm and listen live to the show on Wednesdays at 10pm CT.

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.
