Got a music lover on your holiday shopping list? Several high profile concerts go on sale this week.
Plus, local promotion house Margin Walker launches a new annual membership program.
Margin Walker Fan Club. Austin's top indie promoter has launched a new subscription service to help true music fanatics keep the party rocking all year long. For $150, fan club members get a pair of tickets to one show of their choice each month. There will be a limited number of fan club spots for each show and tickets will be awarded on a first come, first served basis. We can't make any promises about how smooth the process will be and we suspect there will be a scramble for many hot shows, but $12.50 for two tickets a month seems like a pretty sweet deal. Fan club members will also get access to exclusive presale opportunities and invites to fan club events. Fan club tickets are non-transferable. $150. On sale Dec. 14 at 10 a.m.
Feb. 9: Carnaval Brasileiro at Emo's. Know an old school Austinite who still likes to get down? The long-running samba party moves to Emo's this year where organizers promise the event's traditions of costumed revelry and wild abandon will continue. On sale Dec. 15 at noon.
