Friday Night East Side Inn Action
Among a plethora of other entertainment options tonight are two events at the happening Inn scene on the East side. The first comes from a MySpace bulletin from our favorite 60s girl group-inspired band the Carrots:
For your benefit we have scheduled a night of preprogrammed entertainment in hopes of easing your anxieties regarding what to do with yourself this weekend. This Friday you will be attending a spectacular Carrots show in which 14 unique Care Bear costume wearing teens reenact the horrors of cannibalism in a Stephanie Chan penned play entitled “Telephone Call for Teddy Ruxpin”. The Carrots will perform 10 songs throughout the course of this play. Afterwards, the White Ghost Shivers will perform. We start at 10 pm. The location is the Longbranch Inn on Austin’s fabulous eastside. It is 21+ due to scenes of graphic Care Bear sex. Please bring clothes you don’t mind getting splattered in partially fake blood.
I’m not sure how much of that bulletin is true, but even if it isn’t, you still get to see the Carrots.
But if you’re not into graphic Care Bear sex, and you feel like getting your dance on, a Waxploitation event is happening at Red’s Scoot Inn tonight:
The Sounds of the Original Get Down return to the Red Scoot! Little Danny, Greg Most, Dr. Rhythm & Brett Koshkin brave the darkest alleys, sly hustlers and hardest ghetto streets to bring you the Original
Get Down Vibrations! The mystic revelation of superfunky soul recorded in wax! No hiphop, disco or “we want the funks”… just the gospel of the Original Heavy Soul Sounds as laid down by The Godfather James Brown. All of this PLUS your Maestro of Ceremonies–a man who was on the scene then and
MAKES the scene today–OBATALLAH presides over the dancefloor.
If you aren’t doing one of the 50 other things going on tonight, either of these events is a good option.
