November 2015 Austin Music Mama Picks

2015 Austin Music Mama Roundup

When you are in the throes of mama-hood, it’s easy to forget that we live in the Live Music Capital of the World. It’s easy to forget how music can tell a story, lift you up and take you to a different place. You don’t necessarily have to go downtown, get super dressed up or break the bank. Or maybe you braved ACL last month and are ready to make live music a more regular thing?

Did we convince you? Great! Now, you just need some ideas of where to go. That’s why we’ve done the hard work for you. We’ve studied the listings, listened to the bands and have ten shows we recommend for this month. Yes, the Fun Fun Fun Fest is also happening this month, and we are jealous for all of you who will be seeing Chvrches! Keep in mind that some shows might sell out, so check the links before heading out. Have a blast!
