Our friends who have been keeping the dream alive for a lot of bands touring through Austin are in a tight spot. They haven’t been paid since SXSW. To help raise money for the Beerland staff there will be raffles and giveaways, a bake sale and BBQ! This is not only a good cause but also a lot of fun.
The goal is to get these people paid for the time that they have dedicated to a monument of local and touring acts that aren’t big enough to have a company book for them and let them know the Austin music community is not just a bunch of people that only care about themselves. I hate to think about the people keeping what I loved alive in this town are feeling discouraged and can’t even eat at times. We care. We want live music to be alive in Austin.
