Daybreaker ATX // Aqua Boogie

  • Native Hostel

One fish, two fish, red fish, — let’s have a sleepover!🐠 💤

Austin Texas, we’re less than two parties in and already … we’re about to take things to a whole other level — sea level.🙌 Wednesday June 28th, bring on the mermaids, the rainbow fish and the coral reef. We’re getting ready to Aqua Boogie it up, where the only thing better than an ocean themed dance party — is an ocean themed dance party that’s also a slumber party.🎉

That’s right, y’all. This next one’s happening at Native Hostel Austin and they’re hooking us up with a limited number of beds to crash in the night before the main event. We’ll have ourselves a mini staycation* in (pretty much) the dopest hostel we’ve ever seen. We’ll rest up and make some memories — then dive on into an incredible morning lineup (ahem ahem, we’ve got Melody DanceFit on the pre-party fitness sesh, RIDERS AGAINST the STORM (RAS) to keep the energy crankin’, DJ Manny on the 1's and 2's, and more surprises than we can fit inside this set of parentheses). So snag those tix and lezzgo!

See you on the dance floor. 💃


*One Slumber Party Package ticket gives you a room to stay, access to the dance fitness session and access to the dance party. You do not need to stay overnight to participate in this event. Regular tickets are available. Please scroll down for further Slumber Party details. For more information click here.

Lost Rabbit Collective Hops into Bastrop: Flaming Guns of the Purple Sage

  • 809 Main Street Bastrop, TX, 78602 United States

Lost Rabbit Collective (LRC), a professional theatrical ensemble and group of artists in Bastrop, TX was founded in late 2016 by Bastrop native and current resident Charlesanne Rabensburg, who serves as Artistic Director.  

“The Rabbits”, as they affectionately refer to themselves, were born as an artistic cooperative--a home for theatrical performance, multimedia art, film, and educational programs. With the help of two Chicago transplants and long-time producers, Emma Peterson and Natalie DiCristofano (both currently residing in Austin, TX), LRC hopes to start small with live performance to introduce their work; eventually expanding into more direct collaboration within the communities- for the residents in and around Bastrop, TX.
 
Lost Rabbit’s performance vision is to infuse a Chicago storefront style of up-close-and-personal performances with familiar, found, and intimate spaces to create the 'welcome home' vibe of Texas hospitality.
 
Their inaugural productionFlaming Guns of the Purple Sage, a dark comedy by Jane Martin, is set to open on June 30th at the historic 1832 Tavern in downtown Bastrop and runs through July 22nd.

THE QUEERBOMB MANIFESTO

Queerbomb is a family of LGBTQIA individuals gathering to support our unique and collective pride. Our purpose is to provide a space to celebrate each and every member of our community and encourage all to embrace the manifold ways we contribute to building a beautiful and diverse society. We look to the traditions of our queer radical past, embodied in the struggles of our ongoing fight for equal justice and the right to express ourselves in whatever way we see fit.

Each June, the month of Stonewall, we stand forth to embrace our sexuality, bodies, personalities, art, music, literature and politics. We are reclaiming the radical, carnal and transgressive lineage of our ever changing community to capture a meaning of pride that refuses to put rules on what you can and can’t be proud of. Queerbomb does not apologize, Queerbomb does not make excuses. Queerbomb stands proud, and so should you.

Manifesto Queerbomb

Queerbomb es una familia de individuales LGBTQIA que se reúnen para apoyar nuestro orgullo único y colectivo. Nuestro propósito es de proporcionar un espacio donde se celebra cada miembro de nuestra comunidad y animar a todos a reconocer las formas en cuales contribuimos a la construcion de una sociedad bella y diversa. Nos reapoderamos del linaje radical, carnal y transgresivo de nuestra comunidad, siempre cambiante, en nuestra lucha constante por la justicia y la igualdad de derecho a expresarnos de la manera que lo veamos conveniente.

Cada mes de Junio, el mes de Stonewall, nos contamos presentes manteniendo el orgullo de nuestra sexualidad, nuestros cuerpos, personalidades, arte, música, literatura y política. Mientras que recuperamos la energy del movimiento radical, carnal, y transgresiva que nuestra communidad exude, siempre en un estado de flux. Nos esforzamos por un orgullo que se niega a poner las reglas que uno puede o no puede estar , que dice que todas las expresiones, desde el espíritu a la carne, son dignas. QueerBomb no se disculpa. QueerBomb no hace excusas. QueerBomb tiene su propio orgullo y usted también debería de hacerlo.
