Here it comes! NOVEMBER 5: The Austin Bleet-Up

Oh my guys!!

Austin Bleet-Up Presents: Austin, Meet Your Bloggers

I was going to wait until tomorrow morning to post this, but here it is almost bedtime and I can't hold this news in any longer.

So back in July, a group of us local bloggers got together at TRIO for the first Bleet-Up. And do you want to know something funny? When we were in the early planning stages for the event, and the lovely events coordinator at TRIO asked me how many bloggers I predicted would attend, do you know what I told her? 15! One five!

But instead, we got something like 150 bloggers, and everyone there was so interesting and cool. It was then we realized....hey, this local community of bloggers is nothing to shake a stick at. We should do these little get-togethers more often, and in addition to that, have a bleet-up where Austin's blog READERS get to meet all these blog WRITERS.

So we're bleeting up again y'all, and all are invited - bloggers and non-bloggers. And because we wanted to make sure our music/fashion/foodie bloggers* each had special things to look forward to, we're hosting bands, pop-up shops by Prototype Vintage and Rene Geneva Designs, drinks by Tito's Vodka and Sweet Leaf Tea, and eats by Mama Fu's. (Oh and GET THIS. We're auctioning off a guitar signed by Debbie Harry to benefit Girls Rock Camp. Boom shaka laka!)

The oh-so-talented Cory Ryan, who did our photo booth at the last Bleet-Up, will do a photo booth at this one too!

And finally, there is a special something coming from Birds Barbershop - and I believe it's for early arrivals - so stay tuned on that.

Speaking of arrival time, it starts at 8:30. Our fabulous bands begin at 9:45; in between that time we'll be rocking it out on the Mohawk balcony / in their Green Room with Learning Secrets and all our fun sponsors. And our fun selves!

OUTSIDE stage will be....

The Lennings
Built By Snow
Corto Maltese

INSIDE stage will be...

Sad Accordions
The Great Nostalgic

To get in, you MUST RSVP. We'll close RSVP's once we hit capacity, so get yours in quick! Tickets are $7 at the door, remember to bring your cash money.

Austin Eavesdropper kind of can't believe how official the humble little bleet-up is?! THANK YOU local bloggers for making the first one so great, and for inspiring us to go for it a second time!

rsvp here.

*NOTE: The highest representation of blogger types at the last Bleet-Up. But don't think we don't love you dearly if your blog isn't squarely about music/fashion/food! (Looking in your direction, political bloggers!)

EDITOR'S NOTE: If you love this poster as much as Austin Eavesdropper does, you've got Candace Carlisle at Electric Promotions to thank. As you can see, girlfriend and her design skillz are mind-blowing.

HOORAY! Thanks Angela & Jennifer. :) Look forward to seeing your faces there.

Aaron Robert Hall said...

Excuse me ma'am, do you have a permit for these shenanigans. It seems as if you are in violation of code 12.03.224 (intent to incite an uproar and buffoonery)

I do have to say, quite the line up there lady. Really looking forward to hanging with friends and meeting many new people. Very excite!

Prediction: Tolly scores her own TV show before the end of 2010

Austin Eavesdropper said... are too much. :) Please let me know when I can buy you a drink sometime as a thank-you all the nice things you say! There's a Fig Manhattan at Peche with your name on it

Hipstercrite said...

Jon said...

Um, is that a Tolly caricature I spy in the flyer!? FAME! It's happening. ;)

Austin Eavesdropper said...

Hipstercrite - Yay! Can't wait to meet you in person, have been enjoying your blog!!

Jon - How funny is that?! My cute friend Candace designed that in as a surprise. :) It kind of looks like the super serious dancing face.

Gotta mix it up a little, ya know.

Austin Eavesdropper said...
