Austin Music People‘s United We Jam event is definitely worth another Austin Music Minute mention. Super cool music, and an even cooler idea behind the event.
The local nonprofit, serving as an advocate of the local music community and the network of people who support it, recently gathered musicians, venue owners and others active in the local scene to certify them as deputy voter registrars, so they can register people to vote. These new registrars will perform their civic duty again tonight during AMP’s United We Jam, a set of shows featuring all-local bands at venues in East Austin and on Red River. Proceeds from these shows will go toward AMP’s continued advocacy and community service efforts in support of the music community.
