A Night For Austin

By: Laurie Gallardo

All the stars are closer (thank you, Kendrick) to the Live Music Capital tonight, contributing their talents to a huge fundraiser to rejuvenate and – your Austin Music Minute host will even go so far as to say – rebuild so many areas of the ATX community affected by COVID-19.

Welcome to A Night For Austin, presented by Luck Reunion in partnership with some very familiar names: Paul Simon, Edie Brickell and Willie & Annie Nelson, all on board for a major benefit for the Austin Community Foundation.

When I say stars, I do mean it’s seriously star-studded madness. The performance line-up alone for this show is a ridiculously over-the-top heavy hitter, including Willie Nelson, Edie Brickell and Paul Simon, as well as Alejandro Escovedo, Black Pumas, Bonnie Raitt with Boz Scaggs, Gary Clark Jr. (featured on today’s AMM), eternal badass Flaco Jimenez, Britt Daniel (Spoon), Patty Griffin, Lyle Lovett, David Ramirez, Charlie Sexton with Doyle Bramhall II, and many, many more.

The performances kick off at 8 p.m. (Central) tonight, Wednesday June 10th, and can be viewed at A Night For Austin’s website, at the Luck Reunion Twitch channel, and on CBS Austin on the ol’ gogglebox. All proceeds benefit the ongoing philanthropic efforts of the Austin Community Foundation.

HAAM Day 2023

…You Who Enter Here

Whether accompanying the marvel and wonder of ‘The Red Balloon,’ complimenting the stunning imagery of Enchanted Rock, or adding an extra jolt of irreverence to a hilarious revised edition of ‘The Return of Draw Egan’, Montopolis delivers a unique storytelling experience with incredible scores by composer Justin Sherburn. This week, the ensemble presents a special […]
