HAAM Day 2020

By: Laurie Gallardo

The Health Alliance for Austin Musicians(HAAM) biggest fundraiser of the year has a decidedly different look this time, though it’s also proof that the music cannot and will not stop. Especially now, when our badass multi-talented music artists need us more than ever.

HAAM Day 2020 is a virtual celebration, bringing all the live music to you throughout the day on Facebook Live, Luck Stream, and on TV (and online, of course) on Fox 7 Austin, all to raise funds for HAAM to provide access to much-needed healthcare services for our local musicians.

The day-long line-up is too huge to list here, but you may have heard a few of these inspiring names on today’s AMM: Walker Lukens (dude, that Fox 7 interview this morning, on half a cup of coffee…you’re my hero), Mobley (new song “James Crow” comes out tomorrow!), Miss Lavelle White, Tomar & The FCs, Eimaral Sol, Jackie Venson, Kalu James, Marcia Ball, Hays Carll, Gina Chavez, Como Las Movies, …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead, Grupo Fantasma, Ley Line, Corey Baum (Croy and The Boys) and more.

Find the full schedule and donation information on HAAM’s website.

It Might Get Loud

Earplugs are not optional for this one. The double headliner at Mohawk tomorrow night, Tuesday Oct. 3, is over the top sick. Tokyo heavy sludge masters Boris share an explosive bill with one of the most influential bands in several things heavy, from sludge to grunge, noise to doom, Melvins. Like, what the hell?! Both […]

The Homecoming

Put this in your 2024 calendar, in case you missed out this year. On Sept. 21, Mayor Kirk Watson officially declared the day as David Shabani Day in the City of Austin, presenting Shabani with “a proclamation for their craft and work in the industry both locally and abroad.” This is meaningful for Shabani on […]
