    HAAM Day

    The Health Alliance for Austin Musicians' biggest fundraiser of the year has a goal of collecting $1.2 million, which supports health care services for thousands in Austin's music community, and they need your help now more than ever. More than 100 bands will perform on HAAM Day, so tune in on TV or livestream. Tons of local businesses are donating portions of their proceeds that day, so before going out, check the list of supporting venues. An online auction has dozens of cool items on offer, including a Cajun dinner party with Marcia Ball and Gordon Fowler, autographed guitars, ACL passes, and lots more. Whichever way you choose to support HAAM, know that your contribution keeps the heart of Live Music Capital of the World beating.
