Rattletree Glow Party

What happens at the Rattletree Glow Party, you might ask?  You put on your glow stuff, and maybe get your face painted.  You take off your shoes at the door as per the rules.  Then you can chill out and listen to DJ Happy Happy James, or get your dance on.  When the marimba music starts, you are in musical heaven.  Joel Laviolette and his band are so much fun.  It was a great celebration of the new studio home for the Rattletree School of Marimba.

ANY = Austin’s New Year.  The city threw a pretty cool party this evening at Auditorium Shores.  There were bands (including two of my favorite Austin bands – Vallejo and the Flying Balalaika Brothers), art, decorated bicycles, food trucks, and nice views of downtown.  Thanks for the party Austin.  We will see you next year. 🙂
