Houston - The Lovers at Last Concert Cafe


You may have seen us, The Lovers, play at Flipside one of the past few years.  We're from Austin and don't know that many people in Houston, so we'd be glad if some Houston burners come out to our gig...


The Lovers will be playing in Houston this Friday night, August 14th.

It's the 40th Anniversary of Woodstock, so we're going to party like it's 1969!

Last Concert Cafe has great Mexican food, friendly staff, and a big outdoor stage.

The first band is Texas Tea Party (starting around 9:30ish)

The last band is The Lovers (starting around 11:30ish)

We Transform.

I want to thank the spirit of Flipside and Burning Man for showing us, truly, what humans can do. We can create the world that we want. We are creating the world that we want. Thank you for showing us our place in the universe, between the sun and the moon and the stars, above the grass and the earth. We celebrate there, us humans, reveling in our aliveness. We spark, we dance, we love, we build. We transform. Thank you for allowing so many openings - in ourselves, between each another, between us and something higher. Everything we need passes through these openings. I am humbled by and grateful for these gifts. I will do my best to remain open.

Thank you for giving us what we need. Thank you for giving us what we need. Thank you for giving us what we need.

There are no other words.

I do want to already say thank you thank you thank you to everyone that has elicited effort in making this crazy machine go. I have been honored to beg you all for your help.

Volunteers! Time to run away to the Jungle! (with a Special Request for Stage Geeks!)

Hi there fearless explorers,

I can hear the trumpets now from this Freakalicious Safari we are about to experience. And I, as your Volunteer Coordinatrix, am still looking for a few (or more than a few) good folks to help make this thing rock the house like I know it will. We still have several shifts in several areas open. (Where are my late night shift people at?) So if you still want to help, (even if you were good and filled out your volunteer profile but the ball was dropped and you haven’t been contacted,) please email volunteerinfo@burningflipside.com and I will put you to work!

******************************************

Calling all Stage Geeks! Looking for people with mad skills (Stage Manager, Sound Techs, Lighting Techs, and Stage Hands) to help make this the best Effigy ever. (And like all brilliant productions, we are looking to make it happen with less time than normal humans would think possible.) If you got the goods, please email volunteerinfo@burningflipside.com asap with a short bio to let me know where you best think you can help.

******************************************

Yours in ever faithful fire,
XTC

I was apparently misinformed about the photo that was sent to me of the mountain lion. However, there is a mountain lion out near Flat Creek - or at least we had one. I am not sure of its most recent sighting, but am certain of a sighting in 07.
Thank you all for contributing to the thread, and the one on facebook. I am embarrassed now to have posted it, but am not sure how I could have confirmed the info ahead of time. I will stick to posting my own pictures from now on.
