Austin's homegrown archive of local live music recordings, Austin Music Weekly, has posted the 100th show on their website. Congrats on that digital milestone!
Launched in December 2010, Austin Music Weekly makes high-quality video and audio recordings of live music in Austin accessible for free to anyone with a computer and Internet connection. Free = good. Good music = even better. We love this archive.
"The mission of Austin Music Weekly is to bring Austin's music to listeners around the world by archiving live performances on a local level," says co-founder Luke Borders. "We're proud to announce the 100th show posting in our first year alone - it's a real milestone for our company."
Austin Music Weekly was launched by a small crew of dedicated music fans to offer free content and, eventually, to share profits with the bands on the site. Musicians on the website range from well-known, such as White Denim and Oh No Oh My, to more up-and-coming local acts looking to build a fan base.
Austin Music Weekly strives to produce a crystal clear and well-polished product. The result is a unique digital experience that, with the click of a button, puts viewers in the midst of Austin's renowned live music scene. Venues include a variety of popular local destinations from clubs to coffee shops, such as Antone's, Beerland, Flipnotics, The Scoot Inn, Ruta Maya, Mohawk, and Stubb's. If you've never been to the music mecca that is Austin, do yourself the favor. Seriously. There are so many rad venues in such a small radius. It is such a cool, artsy city.
"AMW is about inspiring people to discover new Austin music - to get out and see new bands and visit new venues," Borders says. "Artists and venues on Austin Music Weekly benefit from the exposure, while site users can access a totally free live music experience that's unavailable anywhere else—except maybe for those who were at the show."
