Thrill the World
ZOMG!1!! Zombies! ...and damn can they dance! In case you haven't heard, this weekend the good residents of Austin will make an attempt at a world record. On Saturday, Oct 25, there will be over 1,000 people, and some undead, performing Michael Jackson's Thriller dance in unison. At the same time, all over the world people will be doing the same dance in the "Thrill the World" event to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Thriller Albumn. I'll be there with my trusty ChronCam to document all of the terror-ific fun. Let's hope that the dancing zombies don't turn on the living in a rhythmic blood bath. Check back soon for video info. Check out www.thrilltheworldaustin.com for details and visit the Alamo South Lamar tonight (Friday) to get some early dance lessons in their parking lot. For your northerners, the Alamo Lake Creek is hosting their Dismember the Alamo Zombie Film Festival this weekend so be sure to check that out.

A night with Henry Rollins.
Those Dos XX commercials have it all wrong, Henry Rollins is actually the most interesting man in the world... or at the very least he can tell a hell of a story. Hearing him recount the stories of his youth, his days in Black Flag, his travels, a chance encounter with "Diamond" David Lee Roth and even the simple daily interactions he has with every day people make me think that I haven't done a damned thing in my life. Listening to the stream-of-consciousness flowing from his mouth I couldn't help but think "when the hell does he breath?" I always felt like Rollins was an angry meat-head with the agenda to push his opinion on anyone that he could, but that thought was quickly lost the moment I saw him timidly approach the microphone in a simple gray t-shirt and a much smaller stature that I would have thought. Sure he had his moments of screaming and fist clenching but the majority of the night was conveyed in a very honest and almost meek manner. It was charming. The more that I listened the more that I realized that he has a perspective that I wish more people had. He understands that that people are great and that most people will be your friend if you allow it. "The many are great... the few are terrifying" he said when speaking to a man in Pakistan about his beloved United States and trying to learn more about life as a Pakistani. What I understand now about Rollins is that he understands that the world isn't black or white. There is plenty of wonderful stuff in the world even if you've been told otherwise. Thanks for the perspective Henry. I hope you got to check him out. Congrats to those that won our ticket giveaway for the show. Keep checking our contest page for your chance to win tickets to future shows.

18th Annual Austin Chronicle Hot Sauce Festival this weekend!
It's that time of year again, time to wake up those taste buds and down a few brews for charity. This is the 18th year we've been putting together this little ditty and we ain't slowing down! Hot sauce vendors from all around the south are flocking on Waterloo Park to put their reputation on the line to see who has the most kick-ass sauce in all the land. Commercial producers and homemade sauces can enter although because of some updates with the health department if you want to share your sauce with the general public you have to have proof of preparation in a commercial kitchen. The event runs from 11am to 5:30pm and is free with the donation of 3 canned goods to the Capital Area Foodbank. This year we have a fantastic musical line-up including Black Joe Lewis and the Honey Bears, Band of Heathens, Jungle Rockers, Fingerpistol and Girl in the Closet. Not a bad way to spend the afternoon. We'll see you there!
