Stream Pick: Rock For Rent

By: Laurie Gallardo

It’s an extremely sobering read, but very recommended. KUTX Music Director Jeff McCord discusses the importance of caring for our musicians and the preservation of the venues we see them perform at in his article A Deafening Silence.

As we see music artists getting creative with ways to get their music out into the world, we’re seeing similar approaches taken in support of local venues. It’s everything from merchandise to online fundraisers, virtual tip jars for bar staff, club memberships…you name it. That certainly includes The Lost Well, 2421 Webberville Rd., an East Austin favorite serving up some of the best punk, metal, underground, and totally uncategorized shows around. And, like all the venues, they’ve got rent to pay if they want to stay afloat.

So, like any resourceful badasses, the proprietors organized ROCK FOR RENT, a series of live stream benefit shows to help cover costs. And leave it to the Hickoids to step in and help out. Austin’s very own shameless corn punks are doing their live stream thang in support of The Lost Well starting at 8 p.m. (Centra) tonight, Friday May 15th on the Rock For Rent group’s Facebook Live. Donations can be made via Venmo @thelostwell. Git you some.
