News: Austin Music People Announces Venues for 2nd Annual United We Jam Fest

Perennial do-gooders Austin Music People announced the venues that will be taking part in their second annual United We Jam fundraiser festival, and it’s a murderers’ row of awesome Austin venues.

The 2014 participating venues to date include:

  • Beerland
  • The Blackheart
  • Cheer Up Charlie’s
  • Empire Control Room & Garage
  • Holy Mountain
  • Hotel Vegas
  • Mohawk
  • The Scoot Inn
  • Side Bar
  • Spider House Ballroom
  • The Volstead
  • The White Horse

United We Jam takes place August 29th and 30th, with each night kicking off at 8 pm and going until closing time. Every venue that participates will charge no more than $5 for cover, and AMP Executive Director Jennifer Houlihan says “There are no VIP lines and no street closures for this event,” which already puts it ahead of every other Austin festival. The venues will also be curating their own talent, and we’ll keep you posted on the line-ups as they come in but in the meantime keep an eye on AMP’s site. We expect this to be a must-see festival not just for the local talent it will showcase, but for the worthiness of its cause.
