Think you know more than we do about music? Join KUTX for a special night of all-music trivia in honor of KUTX’s 5th Birthday. Your team can compete against KUTX hosts and staff in an epic battle of music knowledge. Thursday, Feb 15 at The Cactus Cafe. KUTX’s Taylor Wallace (who moonlights for Trivia512) will host. Trivia will range from indie to Top 40 (and everything in-between) with a special Austin round for Love Austin Music Month. Prizes for trivia winners and best team name, drink specials, ticket giveaways, and a night of supreme music nerdiness.
This is a fundraiser for KUTX, with proceeds benefitting this non-profit music service. Tickets are $9.89 per person in advance and $12 per person at the door. (Team maximum is 6 people.)
Round up your team of musicheads, come up with a prize-winning team name, and reserve your spot while there’s still room!

Willie Nelson gets the credit for bringing the hippies and the rednecks together in 1970’s Austin. They wore their hair long and played outlaw country at the legendary Armadillo World Headquarters and at honky tonks all over Texas. A particularly Texan version of Twang was born in our backyard and this year we celebrate the cosmic cowboy with story and song at our annual Heart of the City event. Come get cosmic y’all!
Heart of the City benefits SIMS Foundation and the Austin music family. SIMS provides life-saving mental health and addiction recovery services to Austin musicians, music industry professionals, and their family members.
The benefit will take place on Saturday, December 2nd at Emo’s with a VIP cocktail party at 7pm.
with a Special Tribute to George Reiff by Martie Maguire and Emily Strayer.

Project ATX6 is a music documentary project that, each year, selects six musicians from Austin, Texas to showcase at international music festivals. With the idea of showcasing the versatility of Austin’s music culture, we engage these musicians in the chance to travel by train, ferry, or any means imaginable to showcase their music on the international stage. After 4 years in existence, Project ATX6 has traveled to music festivals in France, Germany, England, Japan, and Canada.
