My KUTX: Austin Music Video Fest 2015 Preview

Posted by on Sep 4, 2015

When you think of Austin music videos, maybe the Clash’s “Rock The Casbah” comes to mind–it was filmed in Austin back in 1982. But there’s a new festival that wants to honor some of today’s visionaries. The first annual Austin Music Video Fest takes over downtown September 16-19 with a bunch of cool events: 200 video screenings, 13 awards, VJ battles, workshops, panels, and even some rare live performances. More details and tickets can be found here.

This week on My KUTX, the brains behind the Fest are the guest DJs: co-founders Samantha Gallion and Jeremy Roye and Eye In The Sky Collective’s Anthony Erickson. They’ve got an hour of songs by some of the artists taking part in the fest. Below, you can listen to their episode and watch the videos.
