The music of The Bobby Lees resonates with my neurodivergentNeurodivergent, sometimes abbreviated as ND, means having a mind that functions in ways which diverge significantly from the dominant societal standards of “normal.”NEURODIVERSITY: SOME BASIC TERMS & DEFINITIONS Neurodivergent is quite... More life and neurology. I love this band so much. When StimpunksStimpunk combines “stimming” + “punk” to evoke open and proud stimming, resistance to neurotypicalization, and the DIY culture of punk, disabled, and neurodivergent communities.

The Bobby Lees
This’ll get your juices flowing.
We feature The Bobby Lees on our Mission page in the Keep on Livin’ section.
The work we do here at Stimpunks can be wildly painful. The songs in Keep on Livin’ help me process pain and emerge into hope. Keep on Livin’ concludes with the affecting “Last Song”.
I watch you dancin' and I watch you cry I watch you look up and Scream out why Oh now my dear you got So much to give I heard them talkin' and You're gonna live So hold me closer and Hold me tight A little closer till we're Into the night Cause you and I we've got So much to give I heard them talkin' and We're gonna live That's right It's alright — Last Song, The Bobby Lees
Forty Feet Tall
I’m new to Forty Feet Tall, but I like ’em a lot and am exploring their catalog in preparation for the show.
There will also be a live painting by our friend and ally Cryptic Creative.
Raised between the San Juan Mountains of Colorado and a small farming communityWhat I have always been hoping to accomplish is the creation of community.Community is magic. Community is power. Community is resistance.Disability Visibility: First-Person Stories from the Twenty-First Century https://www.amazon.com/Disability-Visibility-First-Person-Stories-Twenty-First-ebook/dp/B082ZQBL98/ https://www.amazon.com/Disability-Visibility-Adapted-Young-Adults-ebook/dp/B08VFT4R9T/... More in Wisconsin, Kyle gained an appreciation of the land, wildlife and the beauty of nature. Kyle grew up as a 3rd generation artist, his grandfather was an oil painter and his mother ran a stained glass business out of their home in Wisconsin. There was no shortage of artThe arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly,... More projects, outdoor activities, hunting, fishing, camping and gardening. Post college, Kyle traveled and moved back to Colorado, Seattle and now Austin. He has been living in downtown cities since college. The clash of these two timelines reflects the duality expression in most of his work. This duality can also be seen through his passion for the skate, snow, music, tattoo and architecture world.Custom Artwork | Cryptic Creative | Austin
