Welcome to 'NITES
'NITES was a music blog that covered local bands in Austin, Texas.
Local journalist and multimedia producer AJ Miranda launched this blog in the summer of 2008 with the goal of spotlighting the unsigned bands he loved but felt were invisible in the local entertainment media.
'NITES started as a YouTube account (youtube.com/nitesatx) and eventually became this blog. Show previews, concert photos and free mp3s soon followed.
In this blog's glory days, it was the subject of writeups in the local media, including features and interviews about 'NITES in the Daily Texan, Republic of Austin and Do512 Blog. Those glory days have since passed; 'NITES, the blog, was retired in 2011, but its intent and spirit lives on through social media.
At youtube.com/nitesatx, you can watch nearly 300 live concert videos of Austin bands, shot from July 2008 to September 2010.
