Austin — Due to overwhelming demand, the new Texas Community Music Festival Fall Showcase — TCMF 8.1 — has been expanded and will take place Friday, October 18, 2013 through Tuesday, October 22, 2013. All performances will be held at Central Market North.
This unprecedented festival will give music lovers a healthy taste of the highly successful Texas Community Music Festival program, diverse music and overall experience, in a shorter, more compact time frame. The weekend is an “off-week” for the Texas Longhorns, which will make it easier than ever to spend a crisp fall weekend enjoying outstanding musical performances by some of Austin’s favorite community musicians.
Additionally, TCMF 8.1 will feature some German-style bands, in tribute to the Texas-style Oktoberfest celebration which will be going on at the time.
Due to the limited schedule, TMCF 8.1 will close to performers much quicker than the typical two-week spring festival, but as usual, we will be presenting a lively weekend of music, as diverse as the Texas music community itself.
Stay tuned for future news, and watch as the schedule fills out!
