   what's new 
 
SAM BAIRD SCHOLARSHIP  We are happy to announce the 2020 Sam Baird Scholarship perfomances have been judged and applicants are being contacted with the results. On a sadder note, until further notice, public regulation and COVID19 protocols require us to postpone activity on the 2021 Sam Baird Scholarship. We can not accept applications until we announce otherwise.   LINK 

LIVE MUSIC AROUND THE AREA  Sam's  Burger Joint has Ruben V in February, Amy Venable and Samantha Fish in March. Our Member Venues are opening up more shows. For the best chance to catch a performance, and there are more of them these days, make sure to keep an eye on venue and aritist social pages. Weekday afternoons, KSYM 90.1FM is airing live performances by local Member Artists. Once again, keep an eye on the calendars. Get out and catch a show when you can. Tune in to a show when you can. It supports the atists. It supports the venues. It supports music.

OUR ARTISTS AND THEIR HOME BREWED SHOWS!  In the meantime, let's keep up the great support that has come from all lovers of music in our area. By setting up internet gizmos, you can watch them play live from their homes straight into your house. And people have been donating back to the artists via the internet. Let's amp it up for one big push. Pick an artist every couple of days, catch a live internet show, leave a nice comment, and donate in return to help them continue the wonderful and beautiful thing they do. We all can really use a whole lot of what they do.

SUPPORT OUR MEMBER BUSINESSES AROUND THE AREA  Our Member Venues and Sponsors are part of San Antonio's business world. They service our communities, feed and entertain our families, employ our citizens. The City of San Antonio have specific guidelines and protocols in place, especially for commercial business.  Some of our Member Venues and Sponsors have opened and are following ramp-up models for occupancy. We ask everyone to responsibly support these re-opening businesses. Please follow the rules they must enforce. Many bars have been closed and face fines after being busted for not following simple distancing protocols. This is after they were allowed to re-open. Know what few simple but necessary rules are in effect at the venue you are heading to.  Simply checking the websites / social media sites for the artists, venues, and businesses is the smart way to go about it. The City is instructing local commercial businesses to post their current COVID-19 protocols for their business. The simplest standards: if you are ill, do not go out ... avoid contact will ill people as best as possible ... practice social distancing (6 foot) ... if close contact will occur, wear protective facewear - it protects you and it protects others.  Your continuing support for your local community businesses is so vital, so critical, so a-great-thing-to-do. Be patient, be understanding, be flexible ... Texas Neighborly.
