Best Music Community Storm Response

Texas Music Workforce Coalition, Amplified Sound Coalition, and Austin Texas Musicians

Days into Winter Storm Uri's aftershock, the need for a citizen-led initiative of hot food and bottled water distribution could not have been more dire. Within hours of putting out the alert for volunteers, the call from Austin Texas Musicians, the TMWC, and Amplified Sound Coalition was heeded and then some, resulting in a human chain comprising the music industry and public at large. Extending for much of the length of the Millennium Youth Entertainment Complex parking lot, more than 400 Austinites helped to distribute essentials to families in need, showing once and for all there will always be strength in numbers.
