It’s the Holidays at Open Labs!

zilker-tree1This is going to be a short post, but Open Labs wanted to take the chance to wish every one of our followers are a happy holiday season. The cold weather has already descended upon Austin, and we’re sure our many fans from all over the globe are bundling up. That is, unless you are in the southern hemisphere, which would mean you’re enjoying summer right now. Open Labs needs to keep the location of its creatives in mind.

Here in Austin, though, we are looking forward to the short work week and the gathering of food and families. Also, we’d be remiss if we didn’t point out the big college football game taking place on Thanksgiving between the University of Texas Longhorns and the Texas Tech Red Raiders. And, as always, the Cowboys will play on Thanksgiving day as well. They’re playing the Oakland Raiders.

christmasThen, of course, comes the gift giving holidays. Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or something else, December leading into the new year should be a happy time to spend with loved ones. Remember, it’s better to give than receive. Also, you must recall that StageLight is as affordable a music creation app as is available right now. If the musicians you know use Windows systems, it makes a great stocking stuffer. Or it would, if it wasn’t non-tangible software. Just get the code and send them to We’ll work it out for them.

There are tons of great holiday events taking place in Austin, too. From the annual Zilker Park fun with the giant Christmas tree to the Trail of Lights, to 42nd Street’s insane displays and the Blue Santa parade (on November 30th), we really get into the spirit in the ATX. The Domain is a great place to shop for gifts, South Congress is an awesome spot to hang out and show off your winter fashion and Auditorium Shores/Palmer Events Center is a great place to take in special events. Just bring your coat.

So happy holidays to all the musicians and all the audience members out there. Open Labs knows you’ve all been good this year.
