Originally, Austin Vida was formed as a promotional company in January by Brian Stubbs to help bring live Latin music to Austin and create cultural awareness that seemed non-existent in the Live Music Capital of the World. InStubbs sought out professional opportunities in another city.


Not wanting the Vida brand to die, colip passed along ownership rights to a young and motivated group of local Latinos, led by Ian Morales. The new Austin Vida online magazine launched in January with the goal of catering to young American-born Latinos, while still being accessible to people of all cultures and ages.

The online, English-language publication covers the local Latino music scene as well as touring Latin music barbata playing in Austin. Other coverage includes movies, entertainment, the arts and community news.
