Saturday Choices that aren't the UT Game..

I know these are kind of last minute but if you are looking to for something to do before the game kicks off tonight or just aren't that into football we have two really good options. Both events start in a couple of hours and we have to apologize for the late notice but they are not to be missed.

First up is the Church of the Friendly Ghost Tent Revival

WE’RE FUND-RAISING, & HERE’S WHY: We are asking you as an engaged and arts-minded individual to invest in the growth of Church of the Friendly Ghost as a community organization. We want to provide more than we do now, and we want your experiences—and those of the artists we present—to be more memorable. Your material support can shape and enrich the culture in Austin—right here, right now.

And your second option is Prints For Profit 5 sponsored by Austin Town Hall


From the site:

We are pleased to announce to all of you music fans and general do-gooders out there that ATH has jumped on the bandwagon and are sponsoring our very own Prints for Non Profits event on September 19th. If you have yet to attend one of these events, they take place at Tripps Custom Shirts (map) with $5 from every custom shirt purchase going to The Sims foundation. Not familiar with Sims? The Austin based company works to provide financial support to local artists who suffer from mental and addiction disorders. We can entice you for the show even more with an offer of free Lone Star Beer and of course Sweet Leaf for you non drinking types. Your lineup for the evening includes some band we never talk about Whitman, along with Built by Snow and Markus with a K. Get there early and enjoy your Saturday evening because we know none of you can actually afford the UT game.

Have fun, hook em and all that other good stuff...
