Love Austin Music: Jackie Venson

By: Laurie Gallardo

First, a big thank you for celebrating Love Austin Music Month with KUTX, the City of Austin Music and Entertainment Division, and the Austin Music Foundation! As you know, KUTX is all about the local artists, but Love Austin Music Month serves as an important reminder to support your favorite ATX songwriters, bands, vocalists and musicians all year round. That includes buying the music and the merch (time for a new band tee, maybe?), and going to shows.

That last one has been kinda tricky to navigate during these pandemic times. A recent Faster Than Sound column by Austin Chronicle writer Rachel Rascoe examines the effects the Omicron surge has had on live shows in town, everything from postponements to cancellations, and very last-minute line-up changes that may significantly alter an entire show.

Following two show cancellations in the interest of “protecting the health and safety of my band, my crew and y’all,” Jackie Venson opted instead to bring the show to fans online. Venson’s livestream performance will feature a full production with the entire band, and tickets available via Venson’s Bandcamp, which include a digital download of Love Transcends.

The show kicks off at 9 p.m. (Central) tomorrow night, Saturday Jan. 22. Tune in for the shreds, stay for the virtual party.
