Lee Live: A Clue-Inspired Night of Elegance and Enigma

Ticket sales now open! Purchase here before they sell out.


Saturday, March 2, 2024 @ the Austin Public Library (Central Branch)

6:00 pm - 11:00 pm


Step into a world of vintage glamour inspired by the classic board game and film Clue. Our annual spring fundraiser, Lee Live, invites you to delve into a night filled with thrilling twists and turns as you engage in a live auction, sway to live music from Eagle Eye Williamson and the Talking Heads cover band HeartByrne, and savor sumptuous Vik and Al’s cajun cuisine that would delight even the most discerning guests of Mr. Boddy.


Music Preview: HeartByrne


HeartByrne pays tribute to Talking Heads and David Byrne, who fused pop, funk, art rock, and African rhythms into perhaps the most adventurous, danceable and timeless music to emerge from the new wave movement.




Music Preview: Eagle Eye Williamson


Eagle Eye Williamson is a 7th generation Texas from Austin who creates original blues/vintage rock music playing drums, guitar and singing at the same time.




Grade-level colors: Kindergarten: Noir; 1st Grade: Peacock Blue; 2nd Grade: Mustard Yellow; 3rd Grade: Scarlet Red; 4th Grade: Verde; 5th Grade: Plum Purple; 6th Grade: Blanc
