2) If you want stuff to do that is not dancing, Leila is about to launch a brand-new, super-secret collaborative, interactive storytelling game called Ada and the Lost Horizon. By the time of next week's newsletter, the cat will be out of the bag, so if you want to be part of the game from day one, then make sure you're following Leila on Twitter or Instagram, or just follow the hashtag #AdaAndTheLostHorizon. It's going to be cool and interactive and different, and that's all we can say right now.

No Lights No Lycra, our weekly dance party in the dark, has moved to an online home for the duration of the Covid-19 crisis. DJ Brian Blackout will be on Twitch, broadcasting his signature mix of indie, electropop, synthpop, disco, dusty rock + R&B records, regular funk, future funk, synthwave, new wave, many other waves, and much more live from his living room. Turn off the lights in your home (or don't), stop checking Twitter for one hour, and dance like no one's watching, because truly, no one can see you.
Join us here tonight and every upcoming Monday from 8pm-9:30pm CT. Put it as a recurring event on your calendar or RSVP to the facebook event to get reminders, because we have all lost any sense of time and it's hard to remember when it's a Monday at 8pm CT versus when it is literally any other time or day at all.
If you can't make it to the party live, you can always listen to the playlist we post here each week. Sometimes it's missing a few songs that are hard to find and it's not mixed by a DJ, but it's still got all the music. You can listen to last week's playlist on YouTube Here.
What is No Lights No Lycra?
Austin's weekly judgment-free, substance-free, high-impact dance thing in the dark. 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.
Want to hear what No Lights No Lycra sounds like? We've got a ton of recordings of our resident DJ Brian Blackout's sets up on Mixcloud you can listen to, and we're regularly adding more.
