Texas Performing Arts announced today Texas Mixtape, a curated series by Austin’s own composer and bandleader Graham Reynolds. The concert series features unusual combinations of Austin artists who are inspiring Reynolds right now. As Texas Performing Arts’ first in-person public performances since March 2020, Texas Mixtape will be hosted under the Texas Big Top – a new covered outdoor performance space on the Bass Concert Hall Plaza created for live performances with extensive health and safety measures, including strictly limited capacity and socially distanced seating pods. Tickets are on sale now.
“This series is a mix of several of my favorite musicians in Austin and around Texas, many of whom I’ve been lucky enough to work with, artists who inspire and excite me” Reynolds said.

Featuring Gina Chavez and Special Guest
“I’ve admired Gina’s work from a distance for a long time. Her recordings are all compelling but this year she took another leap forward, releasing “La Que Manda”, my favorite album to come out of Austin this year and a Latin Grammy Album of the Year Nominee.”
The Texas Big Top venue has been hosting University events since September and is now ready to welcome the general public for live, in-person performances. Capacity for Texas Mixtape is strictly limited. Tickets will be sold in “pods” of 2 seats with a minimum 6 ft spacing between pods. Tickets for each concert are $20 per pod and available at texasperformingarts.org.
