Austinist Presents Local Music is Sexy IV

On the eve of ACL Fest, we're gonna turn off our laptops, put on our drinking shoes, and head over to the Mohawk, because Austinist is hosting Local Music is Sexy IV.

An annual tradition since its inception in 2005 (back when the 'hawk was the Velvet Spade, and folks were still arguing over the smoking ban), Local Music is Sexy showcases a bunch of promising young Austin bands and DJs that we're most excited about. Past artists have included Belaire, The Black Angels, IV Thieves, and Clap!Clap!
LMIS IV will feature Austinites The Lemurs, The Corto Maltese, and Brazos on the outside main stage, with DJs Car Stereo (Wars) and Markus with a K rockin' dance-party jams inside alongside Magic Surprise. To spice things up, we're also flying in Seattle indie rockers Say Hi To Your Mom to headline, and welcoming our favorite Houston DJ, Ceeplus Bad Knives.

The Lineup
Say Hi To Your Mom (Brooklyn, NY)
The Lemurs (Austin)
The Corto Maltese (Austin)
Brazos (Austin)
Magic Surprise (Austin)
Ceeplus Bad Knives (Houston)
Car Stereo Wars (Austin)
Markus with a K (Austin/Dallas)

As always, this party is absolutely free. Think of it as our way of saying "thanks!" to you fine folks.

Favorites from the Time Machine

I was browsing through the Time Machine2 on Etsy.com this morning and kinda got a warm fuzzy feeling inside. Here, I was looking at all these talented artists, admiring their work, when I realized, "Hey, I'm one of them!" I am so proud to be a part of such an amazing group. Here are just a few of my finds this morning:

Grandparents' Day This Sunday

This Sunday is Grandparents' Day! Do you have cards to send? The Scrappin' Fools group over at CafeMom hosted a challenge this morning. The theme was Grandparents' Day (umm...stating the obvious here) and this is what I came up with. The tag says "love you to pieces". I used the sketches at PageMaps.com for inspiration. I made three of them to send to my parents, his parents, and great grandma as well.

So....who still needs a Grandparents' Day card? I can crank one of these babies out for you and have it in the mail by tomorrow!
