Austin Variety Show

From the warped mind of Austinite Troy Dillinger comes the Austin Variety Show, a night of stand-up, live music, burlesque, and adult-takes on a few well-known game shows. Oh, and it’s all videotaped and then broadcast, making it a television show to boot. Scrolling through the pictures on the Austin Variety Show’s website you find: a man in the traditional garb of a Devo member; a corseted woman wielding a whip; moments of brutality from what appears to be a rather aggressive pillow fight – this is a merely a small taste of the debauchery Dillinger offers. Be apart of something truly weird. Buy tickets now!

December Austin Arts Meetup

The Greater Austin Creative Alliance, the organization responsible for the wonderful website you’re currently enjoying, is holding it’s Arts Meetup December 12, the second in what will be a monthly fixture in Austin’s arts community.
