Austin Everywhere

As we here in Festival, Texas, teeter on the precipice of the capital’s second-half music fests, locals can enjoy one final respite before Depeche Mode, Goblin, Ice-T, and their ilk pull tour buses into our renowned heavy electro/heavy metal/heavy folk parking lot. The Cure? HAAM. Austin-centric sweet spots for homegrown music flourish in our wellspring of sounds: Free Week in January, the summer months after local spring festivals, and Thanksgiving to New Year’s, when the holidays keep most tour-ists home. Count HAAM Day as another niche. The Health Alliance for Austin Musicians, providing affordable health care for penniless musicians, teams with Whole Foods Market and dozens of local businesses in donating 5% of the day’s proceeds to the well-being of our town’s soundtrackers. Where? Everywhere. Here’s a quick, 12-hour sampling. 10am: Paula Nelson Band, Whole Foods Market Noon: Erin Ivey, Hanger Orthopedics 1pm: Shinyribs, Whole Foods Market 3:30: Steve Brooks, ABIA: Earl Campbell’s Sports Bar 5:30: Peterson Brothers, Frank Smith, Rocketboys, Wooldridge Square Park 7pm: Mandy Mercier, B.B.
