Another year in the books, a little busier than the last two. KU had shows in Chicago, Minneapolis, LA, San Francisco and Seattle, which we hope to revisit in 2020 along with half a dozen more cities in the midwest at least. Lots of Austin highlights, including celebrating our 15th anniversary with our friends in Karaoke Apocalypse. Big thanks to all the local venues that hosted KU: Knomad and Indian Roller every month, plus Cheer Up Charlies, Drinks, The Brixton, Barracuda, Dozen Street, Hole In The Wall and last-but-certainly-not-least, the dearly departed Beerland. There’s a new bar there using the same name, but it’s not Beerland.
Not much change in the top Songs and Artists from previous years, but it’s always fun to keep tabs on that. Sing it LOUD in 2020!
