A.J. Vida Speaks at Mass Comm Week

A.J. Vida Speaks at Mass Comm Week

A.J. Vida along with other panelists at the Music Startups and Blogging session
In 2009 and 2010, AJ Miranda started music blogs Austin Vida (2009) and Red River Noise (2010). These are music blogs that primarily highlight the live-music scene in Austin, Texas. Although national blogs started off earlier and are more popular than these two smaller blogs Miranda and his team had something that they couldn’t offer: Austin.

“They [national blogs] don’t cover the unique genres Austin has within its city limits and that’s the edge that Red River has on them,” said Miranda.

Austin Vida covers the Latin-American music scene and Red River Noise covers indie, punk, metal as well as many other unique genres.
