"...Fresh off the bus, he's been assigned a weekend guardian in the form of anti-BMOC Droz (Piven), the head of an on-campus fraternity affectionately known as “the Pit.” The Pit, it should be obvious, is National Lampoon's Delta House reborn, a squalid, smoke-shrouded, thoroughly cool hellhole that's home to those few students who refuse to give in to the “causeniks” and “womynists” who make up the majority of Port Chester's student body. When President Garcia-Thompson (or Dean Wormer, if you're a really big NatLam fan) hands the Pit a $7000 bill for damages incurred, well, there's really nothing else to do but throw a really, really big party (featuring a tuneless house band called “Everyone Gets Laid”) to scrape up the requisite cash..."
"..."Out here," is how Rick Garcia repeatedly describes the off-the-map, lost-worldness of Johnston High School where he teaches Theatre Arts and English to some of the poorest kids in one of Austin's most neglected neighborhoods. The school is also home to some of the brightest, and whitest, high schoolers, who attend Johnston's Liberal Arts Magnet program..."

"...The Spider House complex faces two ongoing land use violations from the Austin Code Department, one citing unapproved seating additions to the cafe's outdoor patio. In an email to a recurring comedy event announcing the venue shutdown, Spider House Director of Events George Garcia wrote, "The City of Austin is making us change the use of space from Music and Arts event space to something other than." The Ballroom's current official use of space is as an "art gallery," which Bejarano applied for in 2009 during the changeover from a plasma center...."

"...Rob Halverson: The Grapes of Wrath 75 Project started a couple years ago when I partnered with the National Steinbeck Center to create new media to explore modern themes like peoples’ rights, the banking crisis, immigration issues, and climate change – “Dust Bowl Ogallala" is a song! – and all of that while looking through John Steinbeck's lens on the 75th anniversary of his Great Depression-era novel. We’ve held yearly concerts locally and have been so lucky to’ve had really great artists and writers involved – like Thor Harris, Abra Moore, Sara Hickman, Amparo Garcia-Crow, and many others. Gretchen Phillips and Dickie Lee Erwin – I mean, c’mon! The project’s proven to be a great way for artists to create and perform together and connect with the public in a cool and unique way. And this season we decided to do a mashup with another novel, Orwell’s 1984. So here we are!..."
"...Whiite Walls' electro-dance (some might call it disco) pulsed smoothly considering the quartet's snotty stage patter. Bassist George Garcia anchors mega grooves that offset occasional soaring harmonies..."

"...Finishing out the trial for the city was Councilmember Gus Garcia, who proved to be one of their strongest witnesses. Exuding a dignified air, Garcia described how environmental neglect has led not only to ecological and economic disasters, but also to the loss of human life in the Memorial Day floods of 1981..."
"...However, James Garcia, editor and publisher of Politico, an Austin-based newsletter on Latino politics, said he was "amazed" at the time that a representative of Phillip Morris Company was given to speak at the convention. (Although he attended the event, Garcia is not a NAHP member)..."

"...Carre Adams, exhibit coordinator and associate curator at the Carver, says the project began when the division manager of the city of Austin’s Museum and Cultural Programs division tasked the museum with putting together a photo exhibition for FotoATX, a new city-sponsored festival of photography. Adams immediately thought of Alan Garcia, a local historian who has garnered nationwide attention for his Instagram page ATX Barrio Archive, which focuses on the history of old East Austin..."
"...Lobbying for the rights of gays and lesbians is not always an easy or pleasant business, but for almost a decade it's the only line of work Dianne Hardy-Garcia has known. As the executive director of the Lesbian/Gay Rights Lobby of Texas (LGRL) for eight years, Hardy-Garcia has served nearly twice as long as any of her predecessors, and even she's amazed at her own staying power...."
"...Led by co-directors Derek Kolluri and Jenny Lavery, Theatre en Bloc operates under the motto "great art fosters great communities," and as such hopes that by shining a spotlight on the work of Dianne Hardy-Garcia – the inspiration for Bailey's play – the show will inspire others to lend their voices to causes that strengthen communities. As Lavery tells it, Hardy-Garcia was profiled in a chapter of Brave Journeys that Bailey co-authored with David Mixner in 2000..."
"...Or maybe it would all be a big "Huh? What was I thinking?" (Actually, that wasn't until my 20s.) Nevertheless, there's something appealing in these reflections of childhood and young adulthood. Two new television series approach the subject well: Nickelodeon's half-hour comedy series The Brothers Garcia and Fox's "nonfiction drama series," American High...."

"...Austin does not have five low-performing high schools, as News Editor Michael King attributes to former City Council member and mayoral candidate Gus Garcia in the October 19 issue of The Austin Chronicle ["Naked City: Garcia Rates AISD 'Unacceptable'"].
