Music Moves makes moves

Wednesday, September 26, 2018 by Chad Swiatecki

Music Moves Austin, the recently formed political activism nonprofit organized around Austin’s music industry, has started circulating a questionnaire for candidates in November’s mayoral and City Council election. Questions focus on support for a “live music venue” land use designation in the city’s land use code, the agent of change concept, allocation of Hotel Occupancy Tax funds, tax relief for live music venues, actions to preserve the Red River Cultural District, city support for musician health and quality of life services, use of the city’s revised business incentive agreements, providing affordable housing for musicians, and equity and diversity measures related to live music. The nonprofit will hold forums for the mayoral and Council races on Oct. 1 and 2 at Antone’s nightclub. It is also pushing to register 2,500 new voters in time for the midterm election.
