Sometimes a weekend comes along that is so joyfully packed with great events that even the Chrontourage cannot be out at everything. Attempting to do so would spread the Chrontourage so thin it is likely to cover the earth and infect all the people with a strange need to invest heavily in the Hostess Snowball
market. Despite that being a long-term plan of the Chrontourage the timing just isn't right so we are forced to limit ourselves in an uncharacteristic display of restraint.
First up, the Black Angels will be performing on Friday Night at Emo's. Austin's own bring psychedelic rock the way it was meant to be heard. The Chrontourage will be there!
Saturday, we have the Pachanga Latino Music Festival
out at Waterloo Park. This is the flagship event to cap off Austin’s 3rd Annual Latino Music Month
. The line-up is too long and industrious to list here but Grupo Fantasma & Vallejo are a couple of the featured artists, that ought to wet your appetite for the hot latin feast ahead. The Chrontourage will be there from noon to 4pm handing out Chronicle swag, tickets, and other goodies.
Monday night we'll be out at La Zona Rosa to eagerly witness a piece of punk rock history as X
performs with The Detroit Cobras
. Sure it's a Monday night, but punk rock doesn't believe in the work week.
The biggest event that we'll be missing is World Wellness Weekend
taking place at the Austin Convention Center. Think of it as a SXSW for Holistic Medicine, Alternative Healing, and Spiritualism. Lord knows our chakras need some cleansing. There is a special supplement in this week's issue of the Chronicle
. Be sure to check it out if the other events don't quite float your boat.
As always, for more info on what is going on around Austin be sure to check out the Chrontourage site
or the calendar section
of the chronicle.
We'll see you on the town!
