All ATX to host ‘Back to the Armadillo’ with John Fogerty, Shakey Graves at Auditorium Shores

For the last several years, All ATX, a nonprofit that dubs itself “Austin’s Music Advocate,” has hosted a big fall fundraising event for the Health Alliance for Austin Musicians (HAAM), the SIMS foundation and the Austin Music Foundation at ACL Live. Last year, the organizers say, they raised $500,000 for the charities.
