After much anticipation, KLRU celebrated the Opening Night of ACL Live at the Moody Theater. The night began with an exclusive Dinner-by-the-Bite provided by the W Austin in the new theater, followed by the unveiling of the new Austin City Limits backdrop and a performance by Carolyn Wonderland. Steve Miller finished out the night.
We enlisted the dynamic duo behind EyeLikeDesign to create a special installation out of copies of TRIBEZA for the magazine’s 10-Year Anniversary Party. EyeLikeDesign specializes in “creative work for creatives, harnessing the power of collectivity and strength in numbers.” It was founded by Sarah Presson, and designer Alice Willett joined her team in June 2010. Their current client list includes architects and interior designers such as Jack Sanders of Design Build Adventure, Barry Jelinski of Howl Interiors, Jesse Hartman of Shift Build and needlepoint artist Kate Hersch. For the TRIBEZA installation, the gals played off of the 10-Year theme by hanging a X (Roman number 10) across the top of the ceiling and using spray paint in clever ways. We particularly like their motto — “Our clients are the flowers, we're just the honey bees doing our part to pollinate Austin's creative flora.”
In celebration of our 10-year anniversary, TRIBEZA invited guests for an evening featuring delicious bites from Austin’s top restaurants, served up by Jacob Weaver of Mulberry, Shane Stark of Paggi House and Larry McGuire of Lamberts, complimented by cocktails from Austin’s own Savvy Vodka and Republic Tequila. Republic showed off their new Spirit Blends, four all-natural, fresh juice mixers, while David Alan of the Tipsy Texan along with Adam Harris demonstrated Maker’s Mark’s versatility with their impressive Elderflower Collins. For dessert, Delish brought their lovely cupcakes, and King Liquor kept the champagne flowing.
