In what’s been deemed the Live Music Capital of the World, those whose contributions have perhaps laid the foundation have one message: “There is no Austin without US.”
That’s the tagline for the month-long celebration put on by an organization called the Diversity Awareness and Wellness in Action (DAWA).
Where much of Austin’s musical soul is tied to, DAWA will showcase some of the city’s Black musicians at Antone’s Nightclub downtown, from June 8 through the 30 for Black Music Month. The first show will be on a Thursday night. The remaining performances will take place each Friday evening.
