Four bands play five sets in under two hours -- speed dating for live music, a house concert on steroids, a tapas bar of your next favorite bands -- you know the drill!
We're back at The Aveda Institute in North Austin's Highland district, near the ACC Highland campus, Austin Film Society's AFS Cinema, and Jerry's Artarama.
This time around, we've got two singer/songwriters, Tom Meny and Jon Muq, the electronic rhythm madness of Obsolete Machines, and twangcore quartet Texas Textbooks.
You'll be in one of four audience groups that rotate through four performance spaces at AI Austin, listening to 15-minute sets by each act along the way. Then the audience groups break up and for the closing fifth set, which is 20-30 minutes long, you get to create your own encore and listen to whoever you'd like.
All done in under two hours!
Presented with very generous support from Bose Professional.
