Why we all love Learning Secrets.

SO. I've been thinking a lot lately about the suffix "-preneur," as in "entrepreneur," "mommy-preneur," "teen-preneur," etc.  I know, who thinks of these things?  I'll tell you: publicists.  That's right.  MY ILK.

Anyway, I am constantly in awe of people who take their dreams and put the ol' "preneur" gloss on them.  Let me give you an example.  About a month ago, I met a guy at Whole Foods who worked at the capital for over 20 years.  Then one day, as he was leaving work, he said to himself: "You know what?  I want to wash dogs." And that is what he did.  Quit his very secure, very benefits-laden job working for the state, and opened up shop out of his garage as a dog groomer.  Which he does now, full-time.  Lucky bastard?  Kind of. But mostly: Ballsy bastard. 

The first time I told a friend about Learning Secrets, I believe the phrase "living the dream" was included in that sentence.  That is because they are - stay with me now - party-preneurs.  And, lest you think this is a risky business, go ahead and laugh yourself right back to your cubicle, because Learning Secrets is about to turn six!


On Friday, January 22, Learning Secrets is having a six-year-old birthday party at Beauty Bar.  These are the same people who booked Phoenix for a little DJ set at Beauty Bar last Fall, y'all (<---rhyming, I gots it!), so you know they're going to do this thing right.

Musical guests Classixx and Woolfy

Red Bull Music Academy will record and broadcast the whole thing.  That's right, world - hide your khakis!  Austin hipness is hitting the airwaves!  

Tickets are $5 with RSVP / $8 without

Also. Are you listening, high rollers? Because a teensy amount of VIP passes are available for $30. These passes include personalized, signed white pleather pants from Lady Gaga.  Not really but you should still consider it: email info@learningsecretsmusic.com to inquire/buy.

Happy birthday, Learning Secrets!
