SIMS 20th Anniversary Star Party December 5

Sponsorship & Ticket Information

Join the SIMS Foundation as we gaze 20 years back in Austin music history with a night of stellar performances by a unique constellation of Austin musicians. On stage, Austin’s rising stars and cosmic legends front an all-star band for never-before-seen musical collaborations. KLRU’s Studio 6A, original home of Austin City Limits, is the backdrop for this star-studded night filled with music, stories, and images that are destine to be etched in Austin music history forever.

The evening is hosted by Austin Chronicle editor Louis Black and long time Austin arts supporter, Sandy Boone. As perfect and complex as the night sky, our line-up of Austin luminaries, curated by musical director Michael Ramos, promises to sparkle.
