90’s Dance Party at the Highball 9/29

Here we are in the “new millennium”- Y2K has come and gone, we no longer rely on dial up internet, and we lose all functionality without a fancy cell phone nearby.  Aside from advancement in technology, 90’s pop culture was simply the best.  Blossom made ugly hats cool, Cher sporadicly created an entire new language, and folks mmm bopped and did the macarena all over town.

The Mickey Mouse Club must have been feeding those kids crack or injecting them with super powers, as nearly all of them became megastars.  Britney Spears hit us all with her midriff-baring dance moves and simple pop lyrics.  As if that was not enough, she joined forces with hottie N’Sync member, Justin Timberlake, and we could not get enough of their matching denim outfits on Teen Beat.  I could go on and on about my sentimental infatuation with the lost decade.

The Highball is taking us on a trip down memory lane on Saturday with their 90’s Dance Party.  This will be a haven for your closet love affair with Alanis Morisette and a place to display that Destiny’s Child booty shaking move you mastered so long ago.  We should all take a break from our cell phones, collaborate, and listen- maybe the only place where Vanilla Ice really will be back.  Things start heating up at 10:30, so gather up your favorite spice girls and your best backstreet boys and let’s have a dance party of epic proportions.


The X-Factor LIVE Auditions @The Frank Erwin Center 05/24-05/25

Calling all X-Factor fans! Britney Spears, Demi Lovato, Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid are starting their nationwide auditions and their very first stop is AUSTIN, and rightfully so, this city is full of talent. The judges are looking for the best singers in the country for the upcoming season and Austin is the live music capitol of the world, so obviously they will find what they’re looking for.

You can be apart of the studio audience, see the performances, and the amazing judges. If Simon Cowell is as harsh and judgmental (He is a “judge,” so I guess it comes along with the territory) in person as he is on TV, well, I might have to see it for myself. Seeing the fabulous Britney Spears wouldn’t be half bad either. The X-Factor relies on their TV fans, so they have no problem hooking you guys up with awesome seats! The auditions are taking place at The Frank Erwin Center on May 24th and 25th. Tickets are FREE, so click here for more information and to sign up for tickets!
