I’ve been waiting to make this announcement since we first began planning Photo Pop 2012, which takes place Friday, November 9th. As a native Austinite I realize how important the community aspect of the local music scene is, so I wanted to highlight some of our favorite photographers who work their tails off to bring you the best footage of our local scene. Photographers Rick Kern, Brian Gray, Tim Griffin, Pooneh Ghana, Randy Cremean and Gary Miller will be displaying and SELLING prints of their favorite photography shot here in Austin. A portion of those proceeds will go to HAAM. But, that’s not the end of it. Since the photography wouldn’t go down without the rock, we’re putting on a show afterwards with some of our favorite local bands: Gender Infiniti, Low Times, Tiger Waves, Shivery Shakes and Grape Street. It’s a chance to enjoy some incredible photography (and get your hands on some good prints) plus stay and enjoy the rock n’ roll. Or you can choose one or the other, just be sure to support the local scene; it’s what makes it great. Here’s a tune from one of the bands, Tiger Waves.
