Austin Music Scene with John Pointer & HAAM

The Front Porch is pleased to kick off the Sunday Night Stage series at the Victory Grill
with musical acrobat John Pointer and friends on September 30th from
8-9:30 pm.  We’ll talk about the Health Alliance for Austin Musicians (HAAM), the
state of music in Austin, and anything else that comes up.  He’s got a
lot of perspective! He will get us talking with some interesting ideas on how to better cultivate
the live music scene in Austin and work with the musicians who make
it hum.  Of course, we’ll also enjoy some great music.

Just back from an international tour, which included Sri Lanka and Rio
de Janeiro, Pointer has established his reputation as an artist who
makes even the most experimental music totally accessible to anyone.
A member of the Cirque du Soleil talent pool, he is an internationally
renowned human beatbox and vocalist.  In his solo show he combines
that with acoustic guitar, cello, piano and stomping to create an
organic wall of sound—truly a one-man orchestra.  While his performance can
be difficult to explain, it is easy to enjoy.  Pointer has performed
in every venue in Austin from Hole in the Wall to Bass Concert Hall,
has made several appearances at SXSW and has won ten Austin Music
Awards.

But after all the talk, it’s really best to just watch what he does:
