The elegant and earnest Erasure lead singer will appear solo at Fiesta Gardens.
Every year booked by the current Austin Pride crew – specifically, board member and entertainment chair Nathan Garcia – has brought pleasant, left-hooky surprises in the caliber of talent at Pride (Peaches in 2012 and Leslie & the Lys in 2011) to the human-scaled sweetness of the small concrete Fiesta Gardens stage.
Personally, we've never been in the anti-Fiesta Gardens camp and frankly don't understand the hubbub. Yes, we dig you want to feel fancy, dear Austin gays. But seriously, may we, just for a moment, stop and appreciate the significance of having such an intimate venue for someone like Andy Bell?
Come Saturday, September 7, 2013, I want to see that adorable man's vocal cords. That's all I'm sayin'.
Tickets are available now.
