Midnight Butterfly

Midnight Butterfly is an all-girl rock band from the Greater Austin area. The girls came together in 2014 through their mutual love of music and sharing it with others. From performing rock classics, to writing and performing original songs, Midnight Butterfly inspires others, especially young girls, to pick up an instrument and rock out!

The band has performed around Austin  including Austin Trail of Lights, Georgetown Red Poppy Festival, Pecan Street Festival, HAAM benefit concert, Roller Derby and numerous other gigs, as well as birthday parties and private events.

Some notable achievements include: The Austin Chronicle SXSW Music Awards, Best Performing Group Under 18 (Second Place), KUTX Best Bands under 18 (Top 10), Round Rock Chalk Walk (Best Performance)
