ALL ATX Presents The Doobie Brothers
Low Down Violet Crown: Austin Rocks the Blues
A concert of Austin’s finest benefiting our local musicians!
Special Guests The Doobie Brothers
Doyle Bramhall II

Water & Rust
From Stevie Ray Vaughan to Gary Clark Jr., Austin has had its fair share of Blues rock legends. What else better exemplifies Austin's musical spirit than the melding of soulful blues and gritty rock? Blues rock leaves its musical imprint on our hearts and our city, and it's time to celebrate it with a slew of Austin talent.
ALL ATX is proud to gather some of our finest local musicians-including Bob Schneider, James McMurtry, and Guy Forsyth-and pay homage both to and through our city's musicians.
The costs for this year's event have been generously underwritten, ensuring every dollar raised will go directly to the support of Austin's musicians. Among the recipients are Health Alliance for Austin Musicians (HAAM), The SIMS Foundation, Black Fret, and Austin Music Foundation.
ABOUT THE CAUSES
The mission of HAAM is to provide access to affordable health care for Austin's low income, uninsured working musicians, with a focus on prevention and wellness.
SIMS provides live-saving mental health services to the Austin music industry and their families.
Through annual membership and private events, Black Fret is able to give grants to selected local musicians to use as needed.
Austin Music Foundation (AMF) strives to strengthen and connect the local music community with programs that empower both music business and music professionals.
