Undoubtedly, Austin’s liberation has been challenged in recent weeks. Despite activist efforts, on going protests and a general outcry from the public, Donald Trump is the 2016 president-elect of the United States. But the Texas state capital, the bluest city in all of the south and possibly even the nation, Austin, Texas has made an unspoken yet understood collective decision to continue our efforts in cultivating a world-wide revolution through creation. Although our vibrancy has been imposed on and the news came as a solemn shock to us all, the cities innovators are taking the set back with a grain of salt and using it to their advantage; because the nation just got a little bit darker, the good can shine that much brighter.
To revere the beauty and intellect that gallantly undermines the ugliest, and most hateful president-elect in the history of the nation, OV curated a playlist as a testament to Austin’s aesthetic perseverance that refuses to suffer under the dictation of Donald Trump. Stream this playlist as a kind reminder that Austin’s art, love and drive will not be ceased, but instead furthered.
