For the Outback

Posted by on Jan 30, 2020

Plenty of familiar faces are pulling together tonight in support of a massive fundraiser for the Australian Red Cross Bushfire Relief.

It’s A Down Under Benefit, presented by two of your Austin Music Minute maven’s esteemed colleagues in the biz, Penny Loafer PR and Side One Track One, at Barracuda, 611 E. 7th St., featuring ten Austin bands, several local vendors, and numerous raffle items, all to help relief efforts in Australia. Penny Loafer founders Rob and Sharna Pascolo, originally from Melbourne, Victoria and Wandong, Victoria respectively, are devastated having seen the damage done to their home country and wanted to help out immediately. Putting on a benefit show was the natural choice for them, being avid music lovers and working in the ATX music community.

Tonight’s big show includes sets by Mobley, Los Coast, Teddy Glass, Walker Lukens, Jackie Venson, Abram Shook, Darkbird, Fanclub (featured on today’s AMM), The Blowies, and Christine Renner. Doors open at 7 p.m. Do some shopping, get some raffle tickets, and soak in ALL of this winning music. Beauty!! Recommended.
