About Music Firsthand

Get on the guestlist for episode 100 featuring Mobley and Demi the Daredevil! Become a patron at any tier to unlock the exclusive post with the link to RSVP.

We're a passionate group of creators who love live music and every Tuesday we come together to produce and stream a live show called 'Comedians Interviewing Musicians'.

The show exists to promote Austin musicians in the spirit of Austin's weird ways. Sometimes strange, sometimes serious, but always sincere.

Hosted by BeckiJo Neil of the Esther's Follies cast, we also feature local comedian co-hosts throughout the year. We stream the show in front of a live studio audience from various venues around town where anything can happen! In addition to showcasing the artists to help their exposure, we feed them too! This is our way of building community and showing our appreciation for the artists.

Behind the scenes, this requires a lot of work and commitment... Every week we're actively promoting the show daily on social, coordinating with sponsors/venues/artists, holding pre-meetings to plan the show, setting up and producing the show, capturing videos and photos during the show, attending to guests, and following the show we're diligent about getting the artists all the photos and videos within 48 hours. More recently we've began stripping out the audio and publishing a podcast version of the show for fans. We even launched an entire series of web pages dedicated to each episode. It's a ton of work, but worth it all to support Austin music and the artists on our show.

Thanks to our patrons we're able to support the Austin music scene and help you connect with the artists in a unique way you won't find anywhere else!

Our small and mighty team consists of 7 humans and 1 furry friend. They all volunteer their time each week. Claudia (Super Hero), Ben Levy (Producer and Sound Engineer Extraordinaire), Brenda Herrera (Marketing), BeckiJo Neill (Lead Host), and a rotating co-host comedian that has included Kim Stacy, Melody Shifflet, Luis Flandes, Claude Ramey, and Zac Brooks, Jordan (Post production and video), Kris (Everything else no one wants to do), and Macha (Chief of Security and furry friend).

How Patreon Works
We think we have something unique and special so we're building a community of patrons to be a part of the journey. As a member, there are a lot of ways to get involved from as simple as contributing $1/month and getting access to exclusive content to getting full VIP access to all our shows for just $50/month - that comes to over 40 private shows for the year including, dinner and drinks, a T-shirt, and meeting all the artists!

Your pledge occurs monthly and you can leave the community at any time. In addition to your monthly reward tier, we also send out exclusive videos each week to our members such as interviews, performances, and whatever funny antics BeckiJo and our comedians are up to.

With your contribution, we can keep Austin weird and help these great artists gain more exposure!

Where Your $$ Goes
The money contributed by our patrons goes towards covering our basic costs of operation, upgrades to our equipment, promoting the show, and giving something to the staff and artists (they all volunteer their time/skills today).

Goals
$369 of $500 per month
When we hit this goal we'll design an exclusive digital art poster from our artist signature book and send it to all patrons. Every week the artists leave us a handwritten note in our leather journal. It's full of fun drawings, funny comments, and most of all kind words of appreciation. We would love to his this goal and give you a one-of-a-kind cool collector's items showing off your love for Austin music.

Why $500? This goal helps us cover our costs and keep the show operating with our small group of volunteers.
