The City of Austin Music and Entertainment Division, the Austin Music Foundation and KUTX have teamed up once again to declare February Love Austin Music Month, and we want you to be part of it, too! Throughout February, get out and support your music scene. When you do, post about it on social media with the hashtag #loveaustinmusic and you’ll be entered to win a prize pack from KUTX and other Love Austin Music Month partners (see below for the list.)
Here are a few ways you can join the celebration …
See Austin Music
Not everyone’s lucky enough to live in the LIVE MUSIC CAPITAL OF THE WORLD, but you are! Get out this month and support Austin artists and local music venues by catching some live music. Every weekday, Laurie Gallardo’s Austin Music Minute will highlight a show around town featuring an Austin artist or band. You can also check out our running list of shows by Austin-area bands/artists in February (and help us build the list!)
