We Have an Issue: This Issue Gets Around

Far-flung travels and, closer to home, Fuck Money plays Oblivion Access

Noise punk isn't really my thing, but I found Fuck Money's EP extremely motivational during a recent workout in the fitness room of a Hampton Inn in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. I've been here nearly a week now, watching my nephew play in the Division III College Baseball World Series, and I'm staying put now that his team has made the championship series. (Go Hornets!) For those of you not temporarily relocated to Iowa, you can catch Fuck Money live at Oblivion Access, a four-day underground music festival. Or you can just enjoy meeting the band via Julian Towers' profile here; I thought it was a really thoughtful interview.

In slightly more exotic travel news, Food Editor Melanie Haupt is off to Paris to celebrate her son's high school graduation, which she wrote about in her most recent Friday newsletter. If you're looking for restaurant recommendations and Melanie's insights into the food industry, dining culture, and her life as a working mom, sign up for Austin Food Weekly at austinchronicle.com/newsletters. The newsletter will return next week, no doubt with a beret and baguette and effortless sense of chic. À bientôt!
