'Rooted in Sound' promotes local musicians

Transient Mic
San Marcos is a perfect place to kick it off on a grassroots level. The event gives the community the chance to show their support for local music. We believe in our mission and hope that the people of San Marcos join us in our cause. We can’t wait to show people what we will be doing for artists and the industry by bringing the community of artists and audiences together.

Transient Mic became a Texas registered non-profit company in early 2017. Their mission is to facilitate, enable and empower musicians and artists in the creation, preservation and distribution of music and sound. 

The fundraising goal of the event “Rooted in Sound” is to raise awareness of their mission and complete the process to become a registered 501(c)(3) organization. Once their mobile micro studio is finished, Transient mic plans to travel around Texas, recording artists' music at no cost to the performers. After the album has been mixed, the artists will retain 100 percent ownership of their master recordings as a means to foster their development of audiences, critical mass and label interests.

Texas nonprofit company Transient Mic invites the community to be a part of their fundraiser "Rooted In Sound" at the Root Cellar Bakery on Saturday, May 20, at 6 p.m. 

The event will feature live music by Arielle LaGuette, Half Man and Jeremy Fowler. A silent auction along with food and beverages available for purchase will also be featured. 

The evening is a chance for the organization to share information about Transient Mic and its newfound mission supported by the generosity of the Root Cellar Bakery. Owner Kyle Milius has expressed his support by offering to donate 50 percent of sales made by Root Cellar Bakery during the event to the Transient Mic organization.

The purpose of "Rooted In Sound" is to launch the nonprofit's mission with the public and participate in the music community of Texas. 

"San Marcos is a perfect place to kick it off on a grassroots level," said Transient Mic President David Ventura Garcia. "The event gives the community the chance to show their support for local music. We believe in our mission and hope that the people of San Marcos join us in our cause. We can’t wait to show people what we will be doing for artists and the industry by bringing the community of artists and audiences together."

The event is free to the public but donations are encouraged.
