Best Scenester / Mover and Shaker

Maggie Lea

It's not that Maggie Lea has her finger on the pulse; it's that she’s part of what makes that pulse beat. Whether she’s booking bands and throwing events at her beloved Cheer Up Charlie’s, or hosting regular movie screenings at Cinema East (which she co-founded five summers ago), Maggie is at the helm of all things cool here in ATX. Her talent lies in creating melting pots for party goers, music lovers, film fanatics, and all breeds of artists. Oh, and her hair’s pretty awesome, too.
