Hurricane Harvey, as you all know, has caused massive amounts of damage along the Gulf Coast, Houston, and beyond. Flooding is still taking place in much of the region.
The Lemon Lounge, like many Austin businesses, feels compelled to do whatever we can to help our neighbors affected by the storm.
We have set up 5 different shows in September, with more shows planned for October. The work to help people affected will be a months/years long effort to rebuild lives and communities. We plan to support however we can.
Each show features amazing Texas musicians and volunteers donating their talents. The first two shows are potlucks, so bring a dish to share and meet your neighbors before the music starts! Each show is a suggested donation of $10 or bring a welcome kit you've made or drop off requested supplies. Also, each show will benefit a different Texas based organization that we've vetted and that benefits communities quickly. You can find our complete list of events by checking out our "Calendar" tab or our FB page.
Thank you to all of the artists that have donated their talents to their neighbors in their time of need. Texas has a big heart. Thank you for helping in this severe time of need.
