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

I hope you like anniversaries, because that's what is happening this weekend. In descending order of seniority, Halloween classic The Craft is turning 25, Independence Brewing is turning 17, Austin comedy mainstay ColdTowne Theater is turning 15, artistic co-working space the Cathedral is turning 2Fitzhugh Brewing is turning 1, and Vacancy Brewing is turning 1/2. This means that the movie The Craft is 50 times as old as a South Austin brewery. That's how math works.

In other news, if you're willing to travel outside of Austin City Limits, this is a worthwhile weekend to head to Brenham for live art installations and competitive street art duels. Or you could head down to Buda for immersive haunted experiences. Or you could go to Lockhart to learn about medicinal plants so you can stand a slightly better shot of surviving the apocalypse. Or you can stay in Austin, obviously. That's my plan. When the apocalypse hits, I'd like to be close to my bed.

DJ Stuff

After a long hiatus, No Lights No Lycra, our dance party in the dark, is almost back! We'll be at West China Tea in ten dayson October 25, for an evening of non-judgmental, low-stress, and substance-free indie, electro, disco, new wave, guilty pleasures, and more stuff you can move to. After that, we intend to return to a more regular schedule now that we're back in Stage 3 of Covid risk. 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 Kpiss.fm, took a trip around the solar system with some appropriately spacey jams. Stream it from the Kpiss archives here.

No Humans Allowed 075
Let's Get Spacey

For this edition of NHA we're doing a leisurely and musical circuit of the solar system, checking out some clouds on Jupiter, testing the waters at Enceladus (too cold for my tastes, sorry Enceladus) and floating around the Oort Cloud, soundtracked by cosmic disco, synthwave and some library jams.

What is No Humans Allowed?
Brian Blackout's weekly robots-themed radio show on internet station KPISS.fm. 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 kpiss.fm, 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 liteandbriteatx.com.
SEE YOU NEXT WEEK, CHAMPIONS.
