If you’ve been at a live music event in Houston over the past few years you’ve undoubtedly run into Mark C. Austin. A photographer/promoter/social media maven/music lover, Austin has been responsible for helping get the word out about a lot of local acts and has organized a slew of shows over the years. His latest effort moves him into the realm of artist representation and management, as founder of The Convoy Group.
The Convoy Group is sponsoring a day party in Austin during 2012’s South By Southwest, which will be held tomorrow (Friday, 3.16.12) at Gypsy Lounge (1504 E. 6th St.) from 10am-6pm, and features a diverse Houston-focused line-up that includes Young Girls, Poor Pilate, Buxton, Folk Family Revival, Bang Bangz, Benjamin Wesley, Wild Moccasins, Chase Hamblin, Finnegan, Holy Fiction, The Tontons, Dave Wrangler, and more. This is a free event.
