Live. Local. Positive Music.

Upcoming City Roots Shows:

Next City Roots TBD


City Roots is a concept that involves planting local Christian musicians in coffee shops around Austin and promoting these free shows to the local Christian community. The idea was spurred by a desire to see talented local-area Christian bands join forces and make an impact on Austin's coffee shop music scene and the city. Every City Roots event is held in a family-friendly coffeeshop/venue.
