About: 'NITES, a Music Blog for Austinites


'NITES is an Austin-based music blog that covers the local music scene in Central Texas. 'NITES started as a YouTube account called NitesATX on Fourth of July weekend, 2008. I'm a videographer by hobby and I wanted to showcase my concert videos online. In September 2008, I launched the blog 'NITES. The name is a play on words: short for "Austinites" but also a reference to the fact that this blog mostly deals with nightlife-related stuff. Why all-caps? I don't know; it just looks better to my eyes. 'NITES has been featured in The Daily Texan, Republic of Austin and the Do512 Blog.
