MapJam, KUTX's annual all ages, day-long event returns on Saturday, February 21, taking over venues downtown and in East Austin.
Peligrosa, Sip Sip, Ruby Jane, Walker Lukens & the Side Arms, Phranchyze, Golden Dawn Arkestra, Joel Laviolette & Rattletree, Leticia Rodriguez and Clandestino All-Stars are slated to perform throughout the day.
The third annual festival begins at 1 pm at the Mexican American Cultural Center before traveling across the highway to the east side. Other stops include the French Legation Museum, Pan Am Park and the Historic Scoot Inn. Much like the East Austin Studio Tour, participants are encouraged to bike or walk to each destination.
This uniquely Austin event, which is a sort of choose your own adventure style music festival, is the sister project to the Austin Music Map. The grant-funded map lets users submit videos, photos and tidbits about Austin's music scene using the hashtag #austinmusicmap.
