Brian Waymire 2
By Jackie Cular
Brian Waymire, founder of the Red Gorilla Music Festival believes that music, especially in Austin, Texas, should be free and easy to access. During the city’s often-commercialized and badge-only South by Southwest Festival, Waymire gives music fans the ease of accessing hundreds of up and coming bands during his Red Gorilla Fest, often putting bands directly on 6th street, right in front of fans for free. The Red Gorilla himself sits down with us for a second time during the festivals to discuss why it is essential to make music accessible to all music fans.
