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

IT'S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR!!! (Heads up that I, Leila, am writing this intro at 1:28am the night before you will read it, so I'm a little loopy and scattered right now, which means that the first time I typed that sentence it came out as IT'S THE MOIST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR. Whoops. Reminds me of that time when some prankster changed every mention of "public school" to "pubic school" in our high school newspaper immediately before it went to press. Typos never cease to entertain!!)

Anyway. Halloweekend. The most wonderful time of the year, as previously stated. THIS IS OUR TIME TO SHINE, AUSTIN. We've got seances and psychedelic seances! We've got dogs with tacos and dogs who are ugly! We've got events where you can get candy, and events where candy comes to you! We've got short scary films and longer scary films and films with a live soundtrack and films where you can throw toast! Or, you know what? Forget films! Films are for poseurs! We've got spooky book events, too! We've got parlours for vampires and tea lounges for witches! We've got dance parties of the disco, goth, darkwave, and pro-democracy persuasions! We've got other stuff! Scroll down to see it all!

Quite frankly, I am exhausted. Am I exhausted from the sheer variety of Halloween opportunities or from the fact that it's now 1:58am? WHO CAN SAY.

DJ Stuff

Thanks to everyone who came out to this week's No Lights No Lycra, our dance party in the dark! DJ Brian Blackout played an eerily excellent mix of spooky danceable songs, and we had a blast.

Before the year is out, we'll be back with three more NLNL dates at West China Tea: November 9, November 23, and December 7. Mark them on your calendar now, and like NLNLATX on Facebook or Instagram for more updates.

In the online world, No Humans Allowed, Brian's weekly internet radio show on, moved to a new time slot (6pm central) and gave us a second spooky and also robotic Halloween episode. 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
