DiverseArts is happy to announce our latest initiative to unify the network of various creative constituencies who live and/or work in, and serve the culture-rich, increasingly vibrant East Austin Community. The East Austin Blues Alliance is a newly formed, loose amalgam of musicians, music industry and creative professionals, clubs and venues who are dedicated to bringing positive attention to the wealth of talent, resources, and SOUL found east of I35 on any given day.
The East Austin Blues Alliance Summer Series is the first performance vehicle for this new group of cooperating musicians, venues and professionals. The Series continues through-out the summer and will culminate with the first Annual East Austin Blues Fest this fall.
We hope you will join us. Enjoy organic and locally grown food from Sun Farm Kitchen, and quench your thirst with FREE beer provided by Live Oak Brewing Co! Sodas and other refreshments will be available for purchase as well.
A $5 donation is suggested to help DiverseArts continue it’s work promoting local arts and artists.
Join us for a night of music and fun as we celebrate East Austin’s vibrant community!
