About the Event

The Amplified Sound Coalition, Austin Texas Musicians, and SIMS Foundation Present:

The Load Out: An Evening of Stories About Coping With An Unknown Future

Fresh off the heels of Monday’s “Come And Save It” rally, in which Austin Texas Musicians and The

Amplified Sound Coalition kept the pressure on City Hall to be quick and transparent in their SAVES

Resolution funds, the two groups, in partnership with SIMS Foundation, are announcing a limited-capacity

rally at Hotel Vegas focusing on the mental healthcare of the events industry in Austin.

Anyone in the industry, including musicians, venue staff, and festival workers (including third party

industries), is invited to apply to tell their personal story in five minutes or less. Submissions can be sent



Hotel Vegas, who will be hosting the event, has restricted capacity of their outdoor area to 100 people.

The seated event, requiring masks, will be first-come, first-serve, with a suggested donation to the SIMS

Foundation at the door.

The SIMS Foundation, Austin’s mental health group that focuses on event workers and musicians, has not

received any funding from the city or state since the beginning of the pandemic. They are a critical asset

to Austin’s creative community, even more so needed with the uncertainty of the industry’s future

hanging in limbo.

Jeannette Gregor, founder of The Amplified Sound Coalition, will host the event. Guest speakers will

include members from SIMS, Austin Texas Musicians, and many from the events community.
