Black Fret Kick Off Party 2015

Black Fret Kicks Off its 2015 Campaign

The Austin music charity Black Fret recently hosted its 2015 launch party at the Gibson Brands showroom, inviting members and their lucky guests to see performances by rising local acts Aaron Behrens & The Midnight Stroll, The Digital Wild and Barfield.

The showroom made for a distinct backdrop with brightly lit neon signs and the brand’s signature guitars surrounding members, guests and the musicians themselves, who brushed shoulders with the audience and made for great conversation in between sets.

Members have much to look forward to in the coming year as Black Fret organizes more events with their 2014 grant winners and vets those bands and artists nominated for the 2015 funds.
