Sunday At Beerland : the Air Traffic Controllers’ Evening Of Atonement

Posted in Internal Affairs, Religion, Rock Und Roll at 8:54 pm by

There’s at least a half dozen jews in the greater Austin area, and I’m confident all of them will be attending tomorrow night’s Air Traffic Controllers show. Joined by guest drummer J.J. Ruiz, whose guitar playing is well known to fans of Naw Dude, Wild America and the Teeners, Sunday’s ATC set is especially geared to commemorate Yom Kippur 2009, as the following actvities will be prohibited on the venue premises :

1. No eating and drinking
2. No wearing of leather shoes
3. No bathing or washing
4. No anointing oneself with perfumes or lotions
5. No marital relations

After sundown on Monday, as is the ATC custom, we’ll all go out for Chinese. Heck, I’m open minded. Even Tebow’s invited!

If you can make it downtown by, I dunno, midnight, be sure to check the always impressive Elvis aka the Best Band In Austin Most Likely To Get Sued To Death.

    This sounds like a local rock band show. But we’re reading a world-wide website. Rhetorically, WTF? I’ve come to understand that GC is living somewhere in the Lone Star state. Just always assumed it was near the first-established synagogue in Texas — you know, in IRVING.
