HAAM Day: Julian Acosta and Ruby & The Reckless @ ABGB
September 13, 2016 @ 9:00 pm - 12:00 am
HAAM Benefit Day is a nationally recognized city-wide musical celebration that helps keep music in Austin alive and well. HAAM has helped over 4,000 musicians access over 52,000 healthcare appointments valued at over $30 million dollars since we began in 2005. These include routine dental work, doctor visits and prescriptions, psychiatric counseling sessions, eye exams, out-patient procedures, specialist referrals, hearing screenings and more.
Join us for a night to keep HAAM going strong.
Julian Acosta is real rock & roll in the 21st Century. He’s an elegant hippie for lack of better words because of his authentic, free spirited, & educated attitude. His music and voice is like the woodstock vibe actually graduated college with a major in gritty. His voice sings with so much pure soul interwined with blues and rock & roll. When you bring catchy melodies, a personality of character, and moving lyrics together, it’s beautiful rock & roll.
In the spring of 2016 he was nominated top 10 musicians of the year and best new bands at the SXSW Austin Music Awards. Capitol City placed top 5 beating the place of the year before. His song’s Dandelion, a love song played on the Ukule and “This Town” are played across CollegeRadio & Texas Radio. The Austin press has called his performances gritty with a soul, blues, rock & roll vibe.
Ruby & The Reckless
Ruby and The Reckless is the brainchild of Ruby Jane, Austin Simmons, Miggy Milla, Chris Copeland and Sam Powell, based out of Austin, Texas . Their unique style has been called “a psych-jamming, darkly optimistic, alt-hooky, fiddlin’ mind f**k.” They recently received the prestigious Black Fret grant in late 2015, and have been working on their 2016 debut EP with Chris John “Frenchie” Smith out of the Bubble studio in Austin, TX.
With Ruby Jane’s history of touring as lead violinist with national heavy hitters (Willie Nelson, Lady Gaga, Blues Traveler, Local Natives to name a few) and the indie/pop/rock influence of the band, they are creating a new sound that breaches the limits of musicianship in modern day pop music.
