Eat, drink and support local music: Join us on HAAM Benefit Day

Tuesday, October 4 marks the sixth annual HAAM Benefit Day, a day where all of us—Austin’s music-loving community—can come together in the name of the Live Music Capital. In its relatively short existence, HAAM has become a household name in Austin, lending support to one of our most iconic communities: Austin’s working musicians. On HAAM Benefit Day, participating businesses in Austin will donate 5% of their proceeds to HAAM, and you can be a part.

Bright and early, 7 a.m. to be exact, the music and fundraising kick off at Whole Foods flagship location with Terri Hendrix and Lloyd Maines followed by Nakia. The music and giving doesn’t stop there—it continues all day, and well into the night, with over 170 music performances across Austin. There will be music at mainstays like Waterloo Records, Jovita's and Saxon Pub, as well as tunes carrying people through the work day at the Frost Tower and Silicon Labs.

The event culminates in a special VIP party taking place Tuesday afternoon at J. Black's. That’s where we come in. CultureMap Austin is partnering with HAAM to give you the chance to win an exclusive invitation to the party.  All it takes on your part is making HAAM Benefit Day part of your Tuesday. We’ll be at five HAAM locations during the day, where you can register to win. Come see us, support our live music scene, and most importantly, the health of the musicians who bring it to you.
