You’ve been hearing about it. Tonight’s the night, and – if you haven’t noticed by now – your Austin Music Minute host is smitten with the line-up.
Welcome to THE NEXT, a showcase taking over the room tonight at Antone’s, 305 E. 5th St., presented by the Austin Music Foundation and KUTX 98.9. The event features seven local bands/artists participating in this year’s AMF Artist Development Program, an essential element of providing career development resources to local musicians that include instruction in marketing, promotion, and navigating the industry, as well as mentorship and more.
This evening’s badass line-up includes Aaron Stephens, Alesia Lani (featured on today’s AMM), Kalu & The Electric Joint, Otis Wilkins, KUTX January Artist of the Month Shy Beast, Superfónicos, and Western Youth. The party starts at 8 p.m. You don’t want to miss a single set. Very recommended.
