BBB takes on state of Austin music
Monday, September 28, 2015 by Nora Ankrum
The next Beers, Brains and Betterment event is around the corner, this time with a focus on the state of Austin music. Hosted by the Capital of Texas Media Foundation/the Austin Monitor, the monthly series brings local luminaries together to discuss Austin’s most pressing issues. This month’s installment focuses on Austin’s music scene, particularly in light of the recent releases of the Austin Music Census report and Austin Music People’s biennial white paper, and considering ever growing tensions between outdoor music festivals and the Travis County Commissioners Courts’ new restrictions on mass gatherings. Monitor Publisher Mike Kanin will host a panel discussion featuring City Council Member Greg Casar (District 4), AMP Executive Director Jennifer Houlihan, local artist Tee-Double, Transmission Events General Manager Bobby Garza, and Brad Spies, former chair of the city’s Music Commission and current head of brand development for South by Southwest. The panel will take place Oct. 6, 6:30-8:30 p.m., at the North Door, 502 Brushy St. Save your spot here.
