is the Austin Music Co-op?
first of its kind!
The Austin Music Co-op was formed by SIS Promotions
and the Austin Music Coalition to help unify musicians
in Austin, TX. The Co-op is not just a place to live,
but also a forum for community and ideas. This city is
a music mecca. Together, musicians can get informed
and organized. We can help the city and the citizens
make Austin more conducive to a healthy, exciting, and
lucrative career in music.
The Co-op is
located at 5413 Guadalupe Street in a one-level, three-wing
building near the Hyde Park neighborhood. There are 23
bedrooms, 15 bathrooms, and lots of common space. The common
areas include a full kitchen, dining/lounge area, laundry
room, sun patio, garden, fenced in yard, and office facilities
with a copy center. There's high-speed Internet and wi-fi,
easy access to campus and downtown bus lines, and much more.
The setting encourages creativity and supports musicians'
efforts to write, record and rehearse.
Music Co-op is sustained by the residents' active
responsibility. This is an equal opportunity and community
living program in which residents become members. Every member
does 1-6 hours of weekly chores, such as participating in
member meetings, helping to organize events, sharing the
cooking, and living harmoniously in exchange for reduced costs
