The AUSTIN LOUNGE LIZARDS
If you've missed out living in the Lizard's Home and Deranged decade, the world of Black Helicopters & Too Big To Fail, this is your last time to come and be part of history. Better to come now than wonder where you were later!
Darcie's been an official Lizard for ten years. Suddenly, she's moving to Costa Rica. We're blaming it on the election, but what do we know?
Darcie says "No need for me to escape. Our lives are a series of balancing acts. Regardless of who beomes our next president, if I don't leave relatively soon to work & play in a completely different culture and live in the tropics at the end of the world, I'd be tempting fate – more than I'm willing to at the moment!"Well, there ya go. Darcie is still traversing continents for the next few months, she'll be at the Seattle Repertory Theatre for the whole month of January doing Woody Sez. Give her a bit of time to get her land legs back and check in to read about Darcie's world travels.
On top of that, it's Halloween weekend!Please come, in disguise or otherwise, join us in celebrating and saying farewell to our dear friend, and looking foreword to her next musical incarnations, wherever they may manifest themselves.Austin, Friday, October 28: Cactus Cafe, 2247 Guadalupe Street in the UT Union building. Doors open at 8:00 PM, Show begins at 8:30.

Introducing the Austin Lounge Lizards' still-new album, Home and Deranged!
So ... Who are the Austin Lounge Lizards, anyway?
For 35 years, the Austin Lounge Lizards have been spoofing subjects such as politics, religion, romance, the music industry, and even themselves. The self-proclaimed "Most Laughable Band in Show Business" features pointed lyrics, precise harmonies and instrumental expertise. The Lizards are arguably the perfect pairing of their hometown’s slogan, “Live Music Capital of the World,” and its unofficial motto: “Keep Austin Weird.”
The Lizards are:
• Hank Card on rhythm guitar
• Darcie Deaville on fiddle and mandolin
• Conrad Deisler on guitar and mandolin
• Bruce Jones on bass
The Austin Lounge Lizards are five-time winners at the prestigious Austin Music Awards. Their version of Irving Berlin’s “C-U-B-A” was used in the Michael Moore film Sicko. The band has been featured on NPR’s Morning Edition and on the radio programs Mountain Stage, E-Town, and KPIG-FM's Please Stand By.
