Looking for something to do at 10am Saturday morning? I know - who isn't? - but maybe you can cram this one into your busy schedule: In case you forgot, Responsible Growth for Northcross is holding their Arms Around Northcross event/demonstration/hand-holding tomorrow.
Later that afternoon, RG4N hosts a Wal-Mart Isn't Weird benefit concert for itself down the street from the mall, at Brentwood Tavern, 6701 Burnet Rd., 2-7 pm. Music by Jim Stringer & the AM Band, Bee's Knees Revue, Marshall Ford Swing Band, Darden Smith, and the Austin Lounge Lizards. $10 cover. Kids get in free. See our Community Listings for more information.
On a side note, I sauntered into the ghost mall weekend before last for shits and giggles and ended up coming out with the out-of-print Twin Peaks Season 1 DVD for $25. So, it's got that going for itself, at least. But other than that, that place is capital-C Creepy. Rows of disused purple and neon food-court furniture, empty fluorescent storefronts, the saucy spirit of bygone Hooters hanging heavy over everything. Still, kinda weird knowing that, Wal-Mart or no, the dysfunctional ghost of commerce past will be exorcised from the mall. Take a stroll through there afterward, and see what I mean.
