The SIMS Foundation proudly presents Femmes for SIMS: Night of the Chanteuse, a celebration of Austin’s women in music, on Saturday, December 1, 2012 at the historic Scottish Rite Theater. All proceeds from this event will help further the SIMS Foundation’s mission to provide mental health services for Austin-area musicians and their families.
“I couldn’t be more honored to be a part of this event,” said Jazz Mills of Cowboy and Indian. “I’m excited to work with new musicians and make something special happen for SIMS.”
Mills is just one of the feature performers for this event. Other performers include Girl in a Coma’s Nina Diaz and Austin’s own jazz songstress Pamela Hart, with music direction by Grammy winner Adrian Quesada and house band including Austin artists David Garza and Graham Reynolds.
A cocktail hour begins at 8 p.m. leading into the show at 9 p.m. A “midnight snack” at 10:30 p.m. will immediately follow the show.
“We are fortunate to have such a diversity of women artists in Austin,” said Tricia Forbes, SIMS Executive Director. “Unfortunately, many of them report feeling isolated and frustrated while navigating the male-dominated music industry. In response, SIMS is rolling out new services tailored specifically for our women clients. These services will give them the opportunity to build a community and focus on mental health and self-care.”
WHEN: Saturday, December 1, 2012 from 8-11 p.m.
