Whether it's the weather, yesterday's dispiriting news, or the lack of City Council action, the Hustle's a little wiped out.
But still, we have a few tips pertaining to upcoming city events, street closures, and the like. Slouch with us below the fold …
Tomorrow is the “Concert for Critters: A Musical Fundraiser Benefiting Town Lake Animal Center.”
Bachus Conservatory presents an all-day concert benefiting Town Lake Animal Center. Brett Bachus, founder of the Conservatory, has enlisted the help of Jennifer Bourianoff, Assistant Concert Master of Austin Symphony, to bring together some of Austin’s best local musicians and bands for this momentous occasion. These animal lovers will be donating their time and talents to provide a fun and welcoming environment for all to enjoy.The event's going down tomorrow at Bachus Conservatory, 8000 Anderson Square, 10am-8pm. Admission can be a financial or other type of contribution to the center, who needs it: In Fact Daily reports today the center's struggling to find a qualified animal behaviorist as laid-out in the city's “no kill” framework.
Audience members will have the opportunity to hear an eclectic and exciting mix of music from popular local bands, including: the Josh Davies Brass Quintet, Julia Cory Cello Choir, Hyde Park Strings, Tosca String Quartet, Meg Johnson Trio, Victoria Wolff-Zevallos Cello Choir, Grand Daddy’s Jug, and more.
Local Austin businesses have also donated items to raise money through a silent auction. Weather permitting, there may be some furry friends available to pet, care of Town Lake Animal Center.
… Schedule some extra time getting around town this weekend. The grand reopening gala for the Arthouse means street closures Downtown, while the city tweets “UT Football & downtown events will affect traffic over the weekend. Look for alternative routes for IH-35, Lamar, Mopac, and downtown streets.”
What the hell else is happening?
On the city calendar: The Parks and Recreation Board meets for a Water Treatment Plant No. 4-related work session at in the PARD Conference Room, 200 S. Lamar, 1pm.
