Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Lucy Dacus, Kyle Craft, U.S. Girls, and Red Yarn will perform live for Austin kids and families at the 6th annual MyMusicRx + YOU WHO! Rock Show for Kids at the FADER FORT’s new location on Thursday March 15 from 10 a.m.-noon.
The YOU WHO! Rock Show for Kids is a family friendly, morning concert that benefits MyMusicRx, the flagship program of the Children’s Cancer Association (CCA). MyMusicRx bedside and online music medicine programs deliver the healing power of music to hospitalized kids across the country.
Since 2014, YOU WHO! shows have cultivated a devoted following of more than 2,500 influential Austin moms, dads, and kids, treating them to up-close performances from artists like Shakey Graves, Sara Watkins, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes, The Zombies, Best Coast, Heartless “Bathtubs”, Tacocat, Aloe Blacc, and Les Claypool. YOU WHO! has raised nearly $80,000 to fuel MyMusicRx programs.
MyMusicRx has served more than 180,000 children along with their families, caregivers, and medical professionals across the country including through a local in-hospital concert partnership with Dell Children’s Medical Center. In 2018, MyMusicRx will launch its bedside service at St. David’s Children’s Hospital. To ensure long-term, sustainable program growth, CCA has assembled a local advisory board comprised of community members and executives from leading Austin businesses and firms. Proceeds from ticket sales will support MyMusicRx’s local programs.
Advance tickets are $25/adults or $30/day of show. Kids 10 and under are FREE but do require a $0 ticket. A VIP family-of-four-pack is available for $125 and includes complimentary breakfast tacos, concert t-shirts, raffle tickets and a special swag bag filled with sponsor gifts.
