The holiday season is about spending time with those you cherish; for us this means celebrating with friends and the Austin music family. This year we tied one on at Arlyn music studios with a soulful sing-along filled with holiday classics and original songs. This special night certainly could not have happened without our friends at Arlyn: Nine Mile Records and Onion Creek Productions.
Golden Hornet Project is an Austin, Texas based nonprofit focused on the commissioning of new music founded by composers and musicians Graham Reynolds and Peter Stopschinski. Partnering with Adrian Quesada, the group hosted a casual evening backyard party in August, complete with an exclusive performance by Reynolds and Quesada.
Being from Austin means celebrating those who make this city original. We’re always excited to be able to work with talented and creative folks like Keith Davis Young, who spent numerous hours hand drawing this bandana design. He notes that taking that the extra time creates a more meaningful product, something we couldn’t agree with more.
For us Texas summer evokes memories of long days in the hot sun, floating down a cool river while sipping from our flask. Our signature drink, Whiskey River, is a tip of the hat to that ideal day. Using local ingredients from Texas grapefruit to Austin made citrus bitters, this light and refreshing drink is a great way to quench your thirst.
Night after night; show after show, sometimes we need a little more than the music or the whiskey to help us #roamallnight. Mixing in strong black coffee (we take ours cold) and brown sugar cinnamon syrup, gives ya’ just the right boost to go all night long. Drink it cool in the summer or warm in the winter.
Keep Austin Weird isn’t just a motto around here: it’s how we live. In that spirit, we sponsored the 2016 Austin Weird Homes Tour. The local social-impact start-up started in 2014 and showcases weird living as only Austin can. Homeowners and crowds sipped 9 Banded Whiskey as they took in the weird wonders.
