House concert on May 9 benefits Community First! Village

Neighbors, friends and families will gather Saturday afternoon at the Princeton Palace, home of two longtime Austin musicians, for a free four-hour house concert and potluck.

The event is a celebration of our neighborhood spirit and the memory of Monty Goff, whose big laugh and love of music were fixtures on Princeton Drive for over 30 years.  The home’s backyard stage came from Goff’s yard, where he and his family hosted benefit concerts for neighbors in need.

Saturday’s concert is free, but any donations collected will be given in Monty’s name to Austin nonprofit Community First! Village, which provides housing for chronically homeless people with disabilities.

Join your neighbors at the backyard stage if the weather is dry, or indoors if it’s not! Bring a lawn chair and something to drink or share.
