Life Off-Campus, BCS Events, July 21 - 23

    Posted on Friday, Jul 21, 2017
    Hello friends –

    This week is JAM packed with lots of music, food, and the arts. There is even a group grape harvest at a local winery! I’ve never even heard of such a thing, but it sounds like a fun thing to do with friends.

    I truly wish I could join you around town, but I am in the process of moving, which is significantly less entertaining and also not as free. What a shame. There are so many incredible events this weekend, so I hope you’ll shut off Netflix and get out there! I may sneak out to listen to the The Lonely Wheel on Friday night (give them a listen below, they are amazing) or attend the theatre preview on Sunday.
    Email me your pictures from around town at brittany {DOT} Segundo {AT} tamu.edu if you’d like to be featured in next week’s post! Let me know which events you’ve enjoyed this week in the comments.

    This weekend:

    • Summer Nights Concert Series: Austin English Band at Lake Walk Town Center, 6:30 – 9:30 pm Free

      Minus You by Austin English Band

    • Friday Night Music with The Lonely Wheel at Village Café and Art979 Gallery, 8:00 – 10:00 pm I feel like I should always call out when a local band IS NOT country, and these guys call themselves “an eclectic blend of Folk, Blues, Soul, and more.” Listen to the video below to get a glimpse of their intriguing sound. They have a cello!
      Listen here:
      Cal by The Lonely Wheel
      An Internal Dialogue by The Lonely Wheel (this is such a sweet song)

    • Community Harvest 2017 by Peach Creek Vineyards at 2029 Peach Creek Rd.

Snacks and cold water and coffee will be provided, and harvesting should wrap up around 9:30. Afterwards, there will be a party with free entertainment and food for the pickers! This event sounds incredibly fun and potentially like a workout? Not sure, have never harvested grapes before.
