Hell Yes to APA! Thrift Store fun! Volunteers needed!

The primary focus of ABGB’s partnership with Austin Pets Alive! is with their Long Stay Dogs: amazing dogs that have been with the shelter for 300+ days and are still waiting for their forever homes.

To help Austin Pets Alive Long Stay Dogs find these great dogs homes we hold volunteer sessions designed to shine a light on deserving doggies and help them find forever homes. This month session is taking place on a Tuesday evening at Austin Pets Alive! Thrift!

This is a 90-minute shift during which we will be doing special projects at the Thrift Store to put a shine on their inventory! Then, we’ll walk across the tracks for some good times at The ABGB.

Marshall HoodAll Good In The Hood
Show 6:30PM

If it’s Wednesday… then it’s time to get happy. And it’s time for All Good In The Hood.

Wednesdays are happy hour all night all long with a $1 off pints and reduced prices on pitchers..

“Marshall Hood, with effortless guitar work and a knack for crafting the most charming of songs – so reminiscent of his Uncle Champ, it’s sometimes hard to tell the difference. Marshall’s songs can’t be pigeonholed into any one category – they transcend genre. But with a keen lyrical sense and subtly catchy melodies to match, it won’t matter what you call it, you’ll be too busy humming along.”

So, come over. We’re going to be having a real good time… and we’re going to be dancing. We want you here.

We call it the Sunday Best… because there’s no better place to be on a Sunday afternoon than with us at The ABGB.

Lucas Hudgins will be here for all your honky-tonking needs. Hudgins refuses to call what he does “Classic Country” because he says that makes it sound like its gone. And Lucas is proof that it’s not. Listening to him sing with deep and smooth confidence, it’s evident how alive and fresh the sound can be. Timeless, that’s what it is.

Hell Yes Project: Barton Springs Pool Cleaning
Show 11:00AM
@ Barton Springs Pool!

Come help keep the pool sparkling for the swim season by jumping in to help Friends of Barton Springs Pool. The group meets the first Thursday of the month. The pool is closed, so it’s so nice to be there when we have it to ourselves.

We’ll be doing the 11a-1p shift, but there are 9am and 1pm shifts, too! …and check it out, everyone that volunteers to join will be welcome to come to the ABGB afterwards for a ‘slice of love’ on us.

Please tell us you’re coming by saying “Hell Yes!” in the comments. And we’ll share the official signup link when it’s available.

ABOUT THE HELL YES PROJECT
We believe that beer makes it better. Times with friends, a hot slice of pizza, seeing a great band, and, after a nice dip in Barton Springs and some time on the pool’s hill, getting something cold to drink. Hell yes, beer makes all of these things better. But we also believe that beer has the power to make our entire community better. The Hell Yes Project’s goal is to prove this idea true. The Hell Yes Project harnesses beer’s innate goodness and puts it into action improving our city and enriching the lives of lots of folks.

Hell yes, the ABGB loves Barton Springs Austin TX. Long before we ever broke ground on the ABGB, we had many a “meeting” on the pool’s hill dreaming the place up. It’s near (thank goodness) and dear to our hearts. We think think it’s one of the best things about our city (and pretty much, Planet Earth, too). So Hell Yes to doing our part to celebrate and preserve it for us and for future generations. That’s why it’s a Hell Yes Project.

Hell Yes Project: SIMS Foundation Art+Project Night
Show 6:00PM

The Hell Yes Project is getting together with The SIMS Foundation for a fun evening of volunteership and art! May is Mental Health month and you’re invited to help us on project that will make you feel good as you do good. We’ll be working with the folks from SIMS on a collaborative art project at their space.

Like to draw? Enjoy coloring? Like making people happy? Just want to help Austin musicians and the industry that supports them? We want and need you! This 90-minute volunteer session will have you putting your artistic skills at play on a “secret” project. And, did we mention that there will be pizza and beer, too? Say Hell Yes and join us. We’ve got space for 25 people! Email yall@theabgb.com to reserve your spot.

About The SIMS Foundation
SIMS Foundation provides mental health and substance use recovery services for musicians, music industry professionals, and their families to support the well-being of the Austin music community. Live music is the heart and soul of Austin, but living as a musician can be a real challenge. Musicians and music professionals are at higher risk for mental illness and substance abuse, working under the stress of an unstable income, a skyrocketing cost of living, erratic tour schedules, distance from family and support, and constant proximity to drugs and alcohol. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, one in five Texans experiences a mental health condition each year, yet Texas ranks 46th among U.S. states for mental health care accessibility. That’s why SIMS Foundation ensures that members of Austin’s music community have access to a full array of mental health and substance use recovery treatments, delivered with no barriers and at low or no cost. To succeed in our work, we have built a community of health care providers, volunteers, local business leaders, music industry professionals, and Austin music fans to amplify our efforts. Together, we provide vital services so that our Austin music family can thrive.

About The Hell Yes Project
Our guiding philosophy is: Beer Makes It Better. A fresh, hot slice of pizza. A great band on a Saturday night. Hanging out in our beer garden with friends and dogs. Hell Yes, beer makes things better. But it’s bigger than that: We believe our beer has the power to make our community better. The Hell Yes Project is our way of putting this philosophy into action. We team up with non-profit partners that share our passions. Making our city a place where kids don’t go hungry, where it’s safe and fun to bike, where folks have access to healthcare, and where our treasured Barton Springs Pool stays pristine are just some of things we say “Hell Yes!” to making happen. We donate 5% of profits to our Hell Yes Project Partners. To do it, we do fun and cool stuff, we host events and parties, and usually, enjoy a beer or two along the way. We’re always looking for people like you to join us and prove the truth of our philosophy.
