Did you doubt my magic? Think that we wouldn’t get any music for our 25th anniversary celebration and that you’d have to listen to Citizen Sarah muddle through Oh My Darlin’ on the baby squeezebox?
Lucky for y’all my lovelies, my nightly practice sessions have been for naught (not sure if that will be any consolation to my housemates). We have a headliner. And how! David Garza is going to play our show!
David (that’s DAH-VEED) Garza is a locally grown singer-songwriter who… what’s the word? Rocks. Out. Whoo!
Ohhhhhhh yeahhhhh. It’s gonna be a good time. If you haven’t been to Barr Mansion before, he’ll be playing in the greenhouse — a beautiful old building with a big wooden stage, killer acoustics, and a nice intimate setting with plenty of room for groovin’ and shakin’.
So save the date for November 6th! The show will start around 9, and tickets are just $19.84 in advance (since Public Citizen was founded in 1984, natch) or $25 at the door. We’ll have a bar set up for the beer of your choice.
If you’re feeling fancy, you’re also welcome to the dinner that we’ll hold before hand from 6-9. That will start out with a brief schmoozefest and cocktail hour, and then we’ll move in for dinner, speeches, and an awards ceremony for recipients of our Texas Outstanding Public Servant (TOPS) awards. Local dignitary and America’s #1 populist Jim Hightower will emcee, and you’ll also have a chance to meet our new Public Citizen president Rob Weissman. Dinner tickets are $75 per person or $125 for a couple and can be purchased at www.citizen.org/TXRSVP (tickets to David are included in that, you won’t have to buy an extra).
