Teens4Autism will rock the Music Hall on Saturday

Where can you see all the latest greatest teen bands of Austin in one place? This Saturday at Austin Music Hall, when nine musical acts will be performing 6pm to 10:30 pm. Not only is the show expected to be hugely entertaining and captivating, but the money made from ticket sales go toward a good cause: Teens4Autism.

Teens4Autism, an organization supporting kids with autism, and Thoughtful House, a non-profit organization that provides medical and educational support for autistic children, have teamed up to plan this fun filled event in which all proceeds with money made from ticket sales and a silent auction go towards Thoughtful House and helping kids and teens with autism. Acts include Aftermath, Edison Chair, Georgia & the Boys, Loose Wheels, Lake Travis Fiddlers, Gabriella & Jordan, Live Transmission, Carson Brock Group, and special guest Sam Debold, 12-year-old pianist with autism. Tickets are on sale at teens4autism.com.

We Love You, Yeah Yeah Yeah

Beatlemania is back! With the recent release of The Beatles Rock Band and the remastered albums, kids are now “discovering” the band that took the world by surprise in the 60s. On Wednesday, crowds of newly infused Beatlemaniacs headed to the mall to purchase their very own plastic replica of McCartney’s Hofner bass or Ringo’s signature Ludwig drum set. Stores like Starbucks are playing non-stop Beatles until the current craze for the Fab Four ends. But does it ever really?

The 2021-2022 Austin Music Awards Music Poll is underway. Vote now for your favorite bands, venues, and music until January 31.
