It’s October 3rd… Are You Wearing Pink?
“On October 3rd, he asked me what day it was. ‘It’s October 3rd.’”
Welcome back friends! And Happy National Mean Girls Day. It won’t fall on a Wednesday again for another six years, so remember: on Wednesdays, we wear pink. But moving on to more Austin-centric things.
Bedsider ATX has a lot going on in the next few weeks and we are getting amped up for Austin City Limits Music Festival! ACL pretty much takes on a life of its own down here in Longhorn Nation and, to put it lightly, it’s kiiiind of a big deal. If you are lucky enough to be going to the festival, definitely check out Bedsider—we’re hosting an ACL after-party on October 12th at Holy Mountain featuring Omar S. and Thomas Turner of Ghostland Observatory. RSVP on Facebook and go ahead and buy your tickets now so you can join in on the fun.
We have more Bedsider/ACL events coming your way, so make sure to keep up with our FB page. Bedsider will be there with all sorts of goodies and the photo booth will be back in full effect! (You know you want to get in on this bongo boob action.) Plus if you haven’t already, we can sign you up with your own personal, super-nifty Bedsider account so you can have access to even more awesomeness.
And finally, an ACL Artist Spotlight to jazz up your week: First Aid Kit. I saw these girls at Lollapalooza and they were incredible! Total Bedsider powerhouse women.
