September News
Hello everyone, 
We have lots of great news this month-- starting with our intern of the past 3 years graduating from St. Edward's University last month. Congratulations to Becca Johnson, we are proud of her!!  Also, lucky us-- Becca has agreed to help us with some part time booking while she stays in Austin, so don't be surprised if you receive an email from her soon. We asked Becca to write something for the newsletter, here you go:

Hi, all! I just wanted to say how excited I am that Laura has allowed me this opportunity to explore this wonderfully exciting industry while continuing to explore my other passions in Austin. I'm proud to call myself booking assistant-- how cool of a title is that?! Upon graduation from the Communications program at St. Ed's, I'm extremely thankful for my experiences during the past 4 years and looking forward to immersing myself in Austin in new ways. Thanks to my dearest family, friends, and professors, St. Ed's, and of course, Laura! Cheers! ~Becca

P.S. sorry I never got the food blog started that I promised... it's not a forgotten project! Not a finished project either sadly.
Puttanesca is on the menu... Buon Appetito!  Look for a cooking class from Michael Fracasso on Concert Windows on September 2nd at 6:00pm CST. The menu and recipe will be ready in advance so you can cook along.  BettySoo will be there to assist.  Cooking class details here--  we hope you can take part! 
We are happy to announce two new artists to our roster. Greg Vanderpool is actually old family to the roster as we used to work with both of his rock bands Milton Mapes and Monahans. Greg released a solo record last fall and we are happy to be working with him again with his new solo project. If you're in Austin, be sure to catch his residency on Tuesdays this month at the Hole in the Wall. We also welcome our longtime friend David Berkeley to the ComboPlate family. On September 25th, David will release a very cool project: a novella of intertwining stories and an album of accompanying songs. Each song is sung from the perspective of the main character of each story. The book is called The Free Brontosaurus and will be published by Rare Bird Books. The album is titled Cardboard Boat and features the lovely Sara Watkins on background vocals. Look for David on tour all over this Fall to support the release. Learn more on David's website. Tour dates here.

Matt The Electrician is taking pre-orders on his upcoming vinyl releases.  Starting October 23rd, Matt will be releasing a 2 Song-Vinyl 45rpm Record, every 2 to 3 months over the course of the year.  At the end of the year, he will have released 6 records, with a total of 12 songs.  Each record will be recorded with a different backing band or musician, including Wood & Wire, Little Brave, Dana Falconberry and more to come. All of these 2 song releases will also be available digitally through a number of online outlets. You can pre-order the physical and/or digital versions of these records on Matt's Bandcamp page. If you pre-order all 6 records, you will get a collectors box as well! 
Moonlight Towers has released another terrific video to their song "Come Back to Tara". Read the story about the song and check out the video here:  

Michael Fracasso, BettySoo and Curtis McMurtry are all volunteering for HAAM Benefit Day on September 1st. We love when our artists give back to the community. Thanks for making us proud!
Thanks for our reading our newsletter this month!
