Everyone I know in Austin is going to the ND tonight to either perform in or behold the wonder that is Fusebox Festival‘s brilliant annual fundraiser. 60 performances in 60 minutes!!!!!! 60 of Austins finest performers, musicians, visual artists, filmmakers, thinkers, and community leaders will line up to perform sixty solo pieces in 60 minutes.
The Chronicle sums it up best “Holy Shit!”:
Fusebox Festival is coming with more performative brilliance than the city’s seen in years, and this madcap fundraising event is only the harbinger. Did we say “only,” friend? We mean to say, “Holy shit, get a load of this!” Jason Newman and Westen Borghesi are your hosts as 60 of Austin’s finest performers, musicians, visual artists, filmmakers, thinkers, and community leaders perform 60 solo pieces in 60 minutes, one after the other, boom-boom-boom. Rubber Repertory presents a silent auction that’s like a biddable smorgasbord of the kind of strange goodness it purveys onstage. There will be prize drawings, a performance by Rebecca Havemeyer, food and drink specials, and a culinarily enhanced VIP option of such varied extravagance that your taste buds will dance a tarantella. Recommended to blow the lid of your otherwise typical Wednesday night existence. Wed., Feb. 22, 8pm-12mid. $25 ($40 for two; $100, for VIP option).
ND at 501 Studios, 501 N. I-35, 800-3066
