AutMus Fest Rocks TAMIU Oct. 8

An upcoming concert event at Texas A&M International University will offer a musical experience with something for everyone and kicks off the University's 35th Anniversary.

AutMus Fest, Texas A&M International University Alumni Association's Autumn Music Festival, is Saturday, Oct. 8, 2005, from 11:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m.

Admission to the event will be $10 at the gate or $5 presale at participating Popeyes Chicken in Laredo. Children 12 and under go in free, but must be companied by an adult.

You won't have to hazard a road trip to San Antonio or points south and there's no online ticket hassles - just an explosive opportunity to sample some of the great musical sounds of today's and tomorrow's artists.

AutMus offers Laredo, South Texas and North-Eastern México a day of diverse live, international musical acts and entertainment. The artist lineup includes musical acts from Houston, Austin, Monterrey, and as far away as New Orleans.

Artists will perform on two stages on the University's north courtyard, a perfect backdrop for an international music festival aimed at the public of Laredo, regional college campuses and beyond.

Proceeds will help support student scholarships at TAMIU, always a pressing need as students strive to achieve their higher education dreams.  The event also serves as a reunion for alums from the former Texas A&I University at Laredo, Laredo State University and Texas A&M International University. The first College reunion will be held October 9, 2005 from 1 - 5 p.m.

AutMus Fest is envisioned as a new all-family tradition for South Texas. For more in depth information on festival and lineup, please visit AutMus Fest online at  www.autmusfest.com.
