Each year more than twenty Nominees are invited to perform at a local music venue, private residence or other cool Austin location. These events represent unique opportunities for our members to meet and socialize in smaller groups with our musicians and then see them perform up close prior to casting their votes allocating grants.
In keeping with the finest of Austin traditions, we are committed to delivering premium experiences that are simple, egalitarian, fun and intimate. We strongly encourage a listening environment (no talking) when our artists are performing and hire the finest sound production companies in town. Events occur about twice a month and typically range between 100 and 300 hundred guests. As we grow the number of events rather than the size of events will increase. All events are member +1 guest.
Events are held at a wide range of locations including private residences overlooking the lake and hill country, downtown rooftops, some of the finest clubs in Austin, and rare invitation-only spaces such at The Gibson Showroom, Arlyn Studios and The Orb Recording Studio. It’s your chance to gett to know some of our city’s finest music venues, coolest private homes and hidden gems.
