"...Veteran scenester and gal-about-town Emma Little organized the silent auction in her inimitable way, and I set up tables for the “health and education sector” that Kumi Shannon joked we were in charge of. As it was, the Liver Foundation of Central Texas, the Health Alliance for Austin Musicians, the Texas Organ Sharing Association, and SIMS were all well-represented, thanks to the LFCT’s Ginger Busboom and Brandi Smith and SIMS’ Sandi Bruce and Catarina Sigerfoos..."
"...Nurre says the support he's received from the Austin music community as well as from friends and the families of Porter and Vandenburg has been a silver lining in dark times.

"...Music Support Non Profit Health Alliance for Austin Musicians (HAAM)..."
"...And instead of sending a donation to some bullshit website, music fans should show some cash love to any working band they see performing. The musicians will love it more than an online donation to someone else. For the next generation of Austin musicians, I sincerely believe things are better than they have ever been..."
"...With no unknown local musicians earning national buzz via televised singing contests and Bob Schneider not putting out an album last year, the field appears wide open in the 2014/15 Austin Music Poll...."
"...When ALO decided to start its own festival to raise funds for the school's programs and scholarships, it didn't limit itself to arias and overtures; it added a mess of blues, Latino rock, and Western swing. What's more, it's sharing some of the proceeds from these festival concerts with the Health Alliance for Austin Musicians..."

"...Eight separate events will allow the candidates in each of the 10 new districts, as well as the candidates for mayor, to address issues of concern to the music, film, and digital industries; the nonprofit arts communities; and other areas of creative activity (fashion, design, culinary arts, books and literature, et al.) in Austin. Many of the hot topics in that sector align with those in the larger community – affordability, particularly in regard to health and housing; transportation; support for and regulation of small businesses; community infrastructure – but because the contributions of creatives have historically been tied to the city's affordability, rising rents and and other costs, along with shrinking numbers of properties in the central city that can be used for creative purposes, threaten to have a disproportionate impact on local artists, designers, musicians, filmmakers, and their fellow creatives..."
"...Honored musicians of the day are the Tiarra Girls – three young and very talented sisters, the darlings of South Austin and the Ann Richards School – whose breakout tune may well be "No Time to Worry" (find 'em on Facebook). For the inveterate worriers among you, it's also Mental Health Awareness Month (proclamation to be accepted by the National Alliance on Mental Illness) – always a good thing to keep in mind during Council meetings, when an angry penguin may well be sitting in the chair beside you, or even your own...."
"...On the rainy evening of April 20, HAAM is served. The South Chicon neighborhood streets are flooded by cars and rainwater, but that doesn't stop local musicians without medical insurance from lining up on this first night of eligibility for the Health Alliance for Austin Musicians..."
