Once again, it’s the time of the season when thousands of the hippest, raddest, most with-it hep cats around make the annual pilgrimage to the heart of the Lone Star State for what has not-so-affectionately been dubbed, “South-by”. Among those thousands are a few of our very own cool dudes, Patrick & Lydia, who will be showcasing their talents outside of LITA.
Patrick and his band, Zig Zags, will be playing a whole slew of shows over the next few days. They are great live and can really kick out the jams! Listen to some of their tracks on Bandcamp. Details about the shows can be found here.
Meanwhile, Lydia will be screening her first feature film, “BURNOUT” as part of the 5th Annual RxSM Self-Medicated Film Expo (RxSM). Catch it at 10pm tonight (Tuesday, March 11) @ The New Movement (616 Lavaca St.) .

Here is brief synopsis of the film, with links to some of the glowing press the film has received:
Ada’s world looks sunny, but her life is turning up-side-down. When a vote to legalize marijuana passes, she finds her unusual— and illegal— livelihood suddenly threatened. Her brother Gio urges her to quit her alternative lifestyle and go get a “real” job. Margot, her alcoholic roommate, can’t pay the bills. With both girls strapped for cash, one of Ada’s customers tells her about a money-making opportunity “modeling.” Meanwhile, the barista at the local coffee shop asks Ada on a date, but Ada wonders if she is merely the girl with the drugs to him. Is she just the girl with the drugs to everyone? And what happens if the demand for the girl with the drugs becomes obsolete? Welcome to Ada’s quarter-life crisis.
