AUSTIN -- Moms Rock was Austin's first showcase to focus on moms. The concert was put on by TX M.I.L.K., an organization that promotes inspirational things done by moms across the state, all while raising kids.
"Well our website, TXMILK.com, stands for Texas moms I'd like to know, and celebrates the Lone Star State's most fascinating moms," Lauren Bayne, a program organizer. "We thought we should take that celebration to SXSW and host Austin's first-ever mom focused showcase."
The concert featured a full line up of musician-moms at Happy Salon & Spa on West Sixth Street. Headlining the concert was the Bluebonnets, the new band of former Go-Go's Kathy Valentine. Also in the line up was Shelley King and Elizabeth McQueen.
Food trucks and mom-owned businesses were also on-site for the showcase.
Even though it was focused on moms, the whole family was welcome. The free event also included several door prizes, like salon gift certificates, strollers and high chairs.
