Live Music Taskforce Meeting On Wednesday

The purpose of the public hearing is to receive citizen input on issues surrounding entertainment districts.

Created by Mayor Will Wynn and the Austin City Council in January 2008, the task force is evaluating the state of live music in Austin. The 15-member task force is comprised of musicians, venue owners, promoters and neighborhood representatives, and has formed four subcommittees to review specific areas related to live music.

Arthouse expanding

Arthouse says the expansion will triple its total space from 7,000 square feet to 20,830 square feet. The two-story building, built in 1850, is four blocks south of the Capitol building. In 1920, it housed the Queen Theater and it was turned into Lerner Shops department store in the 1950s.
