Second Come and Save It rally today

Monday, September 28, 2020 by Elizabeth Pagano

Austin Texas Musicians and the newly formed Amplified Sound Coalition are planning a second Come and Save It rally today, Sept. 28, at 11 a.m. at City Hall. The rally will solidify support for the city’s SAVES resolution and ask the city for a dedicated Music Venue Preservation Fund to save struggling venues and to establish a qualified grant administrator to distribute city grants to venues and the community. On Thursday, City Council will take up the proposed SAVES (Save Austin’s Vital Economic Sectors) resolution as Item 52 on its agenda. As written, that resolution would allocate $15 million to Covid-19 emergency relief for child care, music and arts venues, restaurants and bars.
