Music For the Mind

By: Laurie Gallardo

The SIMS Foundation and Arlyn Studios are behind one of the biggest livestream productions this year, Music For the Mind, a virtual benefit in support of mental health awareness. Musician, producer and mental health advocate Joe Barksdale hosts the event of musical performances captured live at Arlyn, a behind-the-scenes look at the work SIMS does for the Austin music community, and personal stories shared by local artists.

This is one hell of a line-up: 5D, Trail of Dead, Blackillac, Bright Light Social Hour, Brownout, Gina Chavez, La Energía Norteña, Ley Line, Mélat, Riders Against the Storm, and The Sideshow Tragedy. Music For the Mind kicks off at 6 p.m. Central tomorrow night, Thursday November 12. Tickets are available through the SIMS Foundation website.
