Social Sessions is a project that connects live music artists and charities beyond the stage to create a community centered around positive change. Austin is the Live Music Capital of the World, playing host to the world's best bands and shining the spotlight on up-and-coming artists of all genres. To say the least, people around here love their music. But what if the passion behind the music went further? This is where a concert ends and a Social Session begins.
