Hello friends! City of Austin Music and Entertainment Division Manager, Erica Shamaly is my guest for episode 1269! The ATX Music and Entertainment Division is the only one of it's kind in the world and Erica is here to tell us all about it. If you live in Austin, you've been reading about "The Live Music Event Fund Program" offering $5K-$10K grants to Austin professional musicians, bands, and independent promoters to fund awarded projects. The deadline is May 16th, so you'll want to start looking into it now. Go to atxmusic.org for more information on how to apply and to find out more about Austin's music and entertainment division. Erica and I have a great conversation about the educational components of "The Live Music Event Fund Program", the role of the music office in the city and the programs they offer, adapting the changing music industry and economy, Austin's unique music business infrastructure and much more. I learned a lot from Erica. I'm sure you will too. Let's get down!
Rehearse at Space ATX!
