Antone’s, Austin

Africa Rocks Austin

We are looking forward to getting back in person with our annual event for Music For Life’s programs in Africa. This year we are thrilled to have some of our incredible graduates and young people come from Africa to share in both song and story with you. We’re back at iconic Antone’s on 5th street, and we can’t wait to see you again for a night of incredible music, food, joy and a lot of fun.
