Saturday Live Streams

By: Laurie Gallardo

Oftentimes, your Austin Music Minute maven gets greedy with a little extra for the AMM. Can’t help it. Here is some live stream action to celebrate today, Saturday August 15 (apologies for saying “Saturday August 14” on the AMM; yes, it is the 15th, but what do days and months mean anymore…?):

-The third annual Austin’s Birthday Bash, hosted by Republic Square, is online this year, featuring an excellent all-local line-up curated by Chaka of Riders Against the Storm. They share the bill with Torre Blake (the single “Ain’t Thinkin'” is featured on today’s AMM), Sam Houston and Vonne. The two-hour celebration starts at 6 p.m. (Central) tonight on Facebook Live. Find more details at the Republic Square website.

Tomar and the FCs are featured on Bud’s Live and Direct live stream show, direct from Bud’s Recording Studio. The show starts at 7:05 p.m.(Central)  tonight on Bud’s YouTube channel and Facebook Live.
