Thanks to all our friends, fans and everybody who came to a show this year! And, of course, massive thanks to the amazing artists who created all this life-changing music! Thirteen years into this thing and it’s still such a thrill to see people’s faces light up when they first come to a KU show and have that “oh, I can sing THIS??!” reaction.

KU only did 45 shows this year, with just a handful of those outside of Austin. 2018 looks like it will be very similar, but we’ll be working to do more benefit shows and looking for good opportunities to visit other cities.
I also shared my 2017 favorites with ovrld.com, check out some great music!
