Happy New Year, fam!!! ✨
Our artist recap here is far more abbreviated than usual because as we all know, 2020 certainly be hittin different. 😅
Looking back... we started the year on a high note with some phenomenal shows, including massive acts like Reinier Zonneveld and then Carl Cox right before COVID hit. 👊
The doors then remained closed with a near 7 month stand-still from any business or shows until we returned with a limited series of Beat Brunches for an outdoor dining + music experience in the most gorgeous garden with absolutely delicious food! It was heartwarming & reassuring to be able to reconnect with the community, reinvigorate our mind / body / soul with live music again and that ENERGY.
Finding new ways to operate responsibly, we then finished off the year with a few special shows back at Cedar Street Courtyard with artists like Claptone and i_o's much anticipated return to Austin, one of the last shows he played before his passing. That was a heavy loss for the music community and eerily special to have had those final moments to hold onto. This year has been full of ups and downs but the constant is that music enriches our lives and has given us comfort, hope, and connection throughout it all.
We'd like to thank our team members, DJs, partnering venues, security staff, & our amazing patrons for coming together to prove that it truly is possible to experience live music in an open air environment as long as guidelines are truly upheld, enforced, and adopted as new behavior. We can't stress enough that it is our responsibility as businesses and as individuals to always focus on operating ABOVE the line rather than below it.
May we all put our best foot forward so we can protect our community & save our businesses with safe practices and accountability on all fronts. We look forward to returning when Austin's critical status improves, and we wish you all a good start to a fresh, new year. HELLO 2021 🖤
