Kids At The Border

By: Laurie Gallardo

Urban Heat

This weekend marks the return of Kids At the Border, benefitting El Centro, CA-based nonprofit Border Kindness Bondad Frontera, founded in 2018. Though the organization is based in California, its work is making a broader, more universal impact upon vulnerable populations from Central American countries. This includes providing humanitarian aid, education services, legal services and day laborer outreach to migrants, refugees and asylum-seekers.

Leave it to creative collective The Artlands and Austin musicians to represent in a major way. Kids At The Border happens tomorrow night, Saturday Sept. 2, at Hotel Vegas, on the patio stage and inside the venue. Doors at 8 p.m., with the sickest line-up taking over – Urban Heat, Sailor Poon, Lord Friday the 13th, Norman Ba$e, and Gus Baldwin & The Sketch. The event includes a silent art auction, exclusive merch and more.

*Special thanks to Sandy Martinez for her assistance with today’s AMM.
