Events You Need to Know for Nov. 6 - Nov. 12, 2017

 

The Buzz

 

When we eventually die we most likely will have a gravestone.
On that gravestone there are two dates.
The day you are born.
The day that you die.


In between is a dash.
It’s that dash that makes up your life.


For that dash represents all the time
that they spent alive on earth.
And now only those who loved them
know what that little line is worth.

For it matters not, how much we own,
the cars…the house…the cash.
What matters is how we live and love
and how we spend our dash.

So, think about this long and hard.
Are there things you’d like to change?
For you never know how much time is left
that can still be rearranged.

If we could just slow down enough
to consider what’s true and real
and always try to understand
the way other people feel.

And be less quick to anger
and show appreciation more
and love the people in our lives
like we’ve never loved before. 

If we treat each other with respect
and more often wear a smile,
remembering that this special dash
might only last a little while.

So, when your eulogy is being read,
with your life’s actions to rehash…
would you be proud of the things they say
about how you spent YOUR dash?

 

We encourage you to pick one or more of these talking points

and use them to start conversation with members of the Neighborwoods.

Live Music: Cory Reinisch
Thur. Nov. 9- Time 8:00-10:00 p.m.

Harvest Thieves draw on their blue-collar and back-roads heritage to craft songs that sway from brutish garage-rock swagger to traditional country honesty. With punk-ish explosions in sound, to finger-picked folk-rock simplicity, they are a formidable addition to Austin's historically-minded music scene. // www.harvestthieves.com

Live Music: Mary Beth & Cass Brostad (Two separate performers)
Sat. Nov. 11- Time 8:00 p.m.- 10:00 p.m.

Mary Beth (9PM): Mary Beth was born to classical pianists, grew up playing cello in orchestras, then joined a screamo band in college which eventually led her to touring the US and Europe in the Austin-based folk punk band, East Cameron Folkcore. Currently recording her second album, Mary Beth's songs are emotional, funny, and lyrics-driven. Her intricate guitar-playing and sweeping melodies create "a landscape to live in" and her songwriting - reflecting her degrees in writing and library science - "listen like a book you are reading" (Caro Somes, 2017). // marybethw.bandcamp.com
 

Cass Brostad (8PM): Singer/songwriter Cass Brostad hails from Omaha but has made Austin home for the last 7 years. She sings (constantly) and plays accordion in Madisons, who recently released a new record - No Man's Land - the title track written by Brostad. Currently, she is recording an album of original songs with the project Cass Brostad and the Terrible Lovers and playing upright bass in the folk duo Heavens to Betsy. Some say she tells too many dad jokes. // madisonsatx.com
