Humm I'm thinking but I'm drawing up blanck. I usually have a crack pot team of friends to do research but they're all out of pot, lol. No really I usually just find out about things day off. And if its a weekend forget it I may be at work.
I don't know much about the art scene out here. I just know that there is one because there are a ton of artist. Not a lot of POC in the punk scene. Sometimes I feel like I am the POC of the punk scene in Austin. And I can say that the queer scene is kind of elitist, IMO anyway. Seems like all the dykes know each other and pass each other around. Every dyke I know has slept with or knows someone that was sleeping with another dyke I know. Not much inspiration to move here. Austin itself is a cool city, but you have to kind of make it your own. I would live in Chicago over Austin were it not for the expense and the snow. That's why I had to leave Illinois. Oh, and I was living in Rockford, which is horrrrrrrrrror.
Hey, the best areas in Berlin have to be Prenzlauerberg, the area has great outdoor markets on the weekend where you can catch up-coming singer songwriters and cool vintage shops, and the northern parts of Schoneberg for the gay seen. Shame you won't be there on the 23rd as I'm going for my birthday. Have fun. x
