Full Moon Tomorrow Night

I've always heard that human beings have an uncompromising urge to go out and get a little crazy whenever there is a full moon. I tend to go out and get a little crazy under just about any circumstances, including the arctic temperatures we've been having in Austin. We stood around in the drizzle and frigid air for hours the other night watching Michael Ian Black & Co. at the Mohawk, donned our best mustaches and huddled around the heaters at Beauty Bar, and made it out just yesterday on a cold & wet Sunday evening for intimate sets by Dead Confederate and Christian Bland.

Tomorrow night will be another great round of music, much of it contained on the three stages at Emo's. In the lounge will be the Winter Full Moon Party with psychedelia provided by The Viet Mihn, a lo-fi outfit featuring three of the Black Angels. They will be supported by The Strange Boys, a talented young group of garage/blues rockers who transplanted from Dallas to Austin not long ago. Strong move fellows, strong move.
On the inside stage will be Yeasayer, who I'm really interested to see, along with MGMT, who were here for Fun Fest and just performed on Letterman the other night. To top it off, Lupe Fiasco will be getting down on the outside stage. So, in other words, get your keister down to Emo's tomorrow night, pick a stage, buy some drinks, and party with us under the full moon. Do512 is doing ticket giveaways for the Full Moon Party and for Lupe Fiasco, just click "I Like It" and you'll be in the running.
