First Official Festival Appearance Announced!

One Ounce Opera has been asked to be a part of the First Annual “Leslie Fest,” a benefit scheduled for Sunday, June 24th at several fantastic venues in downtown Austin.

We will update as we know more, but the benefit will last from 4pm to around 11:00pm, and Leslie’s family and friends will be in attendance.

Update: OUR SET IS AT 7:45 at Lipstick24 (indoors).

This is a celebration. June 24th would have been Leslie’s 61st birthday.

This is also a fundraiser for Hospice Austin’s Christopher House, and a way for the community to come together in honor of yet another beautiful reason we have adopted the slogan around here, “Keep Austin Weird.”

If you are unfamiliar with the Legend of Leslie, ask any Austinite. I have also included a few links below for your reference.

OOO will share the bill with eclectic acts from the area – everything from clowns and comedians to marching bands and magicians.

We could not be more excited! Of course, any new announcements will be here as we get them. Add our blog to your RSS feed, just in case.

And don’t forget about our own FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN on Indiegogo. Your support will NOT go unnoticed, I assure you, and time is truly of the essence now! We’re going to need those boas. 🙂
