Daily Events
Earth Day (4/19) & Austin Reggae Fest (4/20)!
It's gonna be a busy one for the Chrontourage. Tonight (Friday) we will make an appearance out at the Scoot Inn for "Murder Ballads Night". If you've got a penchant for romance with a dark side I highly recommend it. On Saturday April 19th you will find us out at the Austin Earth Day Festival at Republic Square Park. We will have our table set-up starting at 9am so come by and visit. If you sign-up on our e-mail newsletter at the event (or are already on the newsletter list) you can spin the chron-wheel and you could win some really cool prizes. Entry to the festival is free but dontations are accepted so there really is no excuse for not showing up. On Sunday April 20th we will be at the Austin Reggae Fest (insert 4/20 jokes here). Just like Saturday we will have our table set up (starting at noon) and you can spin the wheel to win some good stuff. FYI: In case you hadn't heard, the CAT POWER show scheduled for Sunday (4/20) night at Stubb's has been postponed because of vocal chord complications. Stay tuned to www.stubbsaustin.com for information on rescheduling. All tickets for the 4/20 show will be honored for the rescheduled date. If you've got the energy for it, check out the ArtErotica Art Show on Saturday night, or Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks at La Zona Rosa on Sunday night. Everyone be safe and as Bill and Ted would say, "be excellent to each other!"

Events, Contests, & New Chrontouragers
Things we have done recently:
-Swamp Thing Crawfish Fest (George Clinton got the funk)
-The Grind Extreme Sports & Music Fest (upstream to the extreme, photos here)
-Colin Meloy at La Zona Rosa (sea shanty swooning)
-Austin Poetry Slamoff 2008! at the Long Center (snap snap snap snap)
-Ray Romano and Brad Garrett at The Austin Music Hall (everybody can't be wrong)

Personally, I had a blast seeing Colin Meloy perform his sailor ballads. It was a refreshing site watching his playful interactions with the crowd despite the occasional mistake or forgotten lyric... quite charming. Go check him out next time he comes into town. The Chrontourage is growing steadily. I would like to welcome our newest Chrontouragers Emily, Danielle, Malorie and our newest photographer Eric. If you see them out at the next event be sure to say hi. As always you can keep track of where we will be on our Chrontourage Events page (www.austinchronicle.com/chrontourage) and I will keep you updated here on the blog of my impressions of each event along with specifics on where you can find the Chrontourage team.

Don't forget to check our contest page (www.austinchronicle.com/contests) regularly as I am constantly putting up new contests to win all sorts of stuff. Right now my personal favorites include Rush tickets, ArtErotica passes, and tickets to the Texas Wine and Food Festival Sunday Fair. Go check them out and see what tickles your fancy! That is it for now, see you on the town!

Survived SXSW...Barely!
What a crazy week of great films and music!! If you are basketball fan (like I am!) it would be considered the perfect week. We are gearing up here at the Chronicle for our March Madness Tournament Bracket - lots of great teams this year...should be some amazing games. My boys at Syracuse didn't make it in (no surprise there), but there are 8 Big East teams representing - better watch out BIG 12! Grab a beer and enjoy the games!
