The Tip the Band grant program addresses affordability concerns for Austin’s music community by creating a new and convenient revenue stream for musicians. Through the use of new technology—a digital tipping vessel—artists can collect digital tips from fans using a debit and/or credit card within seconds. Find out if your favorite musician was selected to participate in the initial phase of this program, and where you can hear them play next.
Live music performances take place at every weekly regular meetings of the Austin City Council. The performing musician receives a Proclamation from the Mayor, designating the performance date as this artists “Day” across Austin, TX. City Hall Sessions chronicles these performances along with interviews from the musicians.
