Austin Music People (AMP) Executive Director Paul Oveisi announced today that the 501 c (6) non-profit organization will host their launch party and benefit on Thursday, March 31st at ACL Live at The Moody Theater. AMP is dedicated to preserving the Austin music culture by working with Austin music businesses, musicians and fans.

To mark the launch, AMP has brought together a diverse lineup of all-star Austin musicians to represent the equally diverse lineup of fans in our community. The benefit/launch party will take place in Austin’s newest multi media live music venue (and the new home of Austin City Limits), ACL Live at The Moody Theater.

“This is an exciting day for Austin,” says Oveisi. “For the first time, we as a music community consisting of businesses, bands, and fans have all come together under one vision to support what we truly love about Austin. What we have learned is that we are all Austin Music People in our own way, and I hope this event helps raise awareness so even more people will get involved. Our city is changing, and it is wonderful to know that we now have a unified voice and can work together on issues as we grow.”

The AMP benefit will feature short sets by such renowned Austin acts as Ghostland Observatory, Blue October, Court Yard Hounds, Alejandro Escovedo, Brownout!, Bavu Blakes, The Coveters and Bright Light Social Hour.
