Austin Events: August 31 – September 2

August 31, 2010

Well, it’s about that time again.  If you haven’t noticed by the increase in traffic, the rise in dudical broheims, or the continuous news cycle, school has started up for the year.  And for yours truly, that means I’m going to be psychotically busy as I go into my last year of graduate school.  For you, the loyal readers of AGMG (insert your snort here), I can’t promise that there will be tons of action going on, but I’m certainly going to try my best.  I hope you’ll stick with me through the next 9 months, and if not, I hope you’ll at least wish me luck!

Because Austin Events post take so very long to create, I’m going back to an old format of splitting the post up a few days at a time, starting today.  I’d still rather provide lots of information for you then just a list of events that you could have Googled yourself.

Here are Austin’s best music events for today through Thursday.  Come back on Friday for the weekend’s events!
