Under The Rock Presents: Trish & Darin Murphy

August 7 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


August’s addition to the amazing Under the Rock series hosted by UT professor Aaron Rochlen!

Trish and Darin Murphy were raised in a musical family and are now long-standing legends and prime contributors in the the Austin Music scene. The two originally formed the band “Trish & Darin,” one of the biggest-drawing acts in their hometown of Houston during the 90s. Since then, Trish has recorded three solo albums and toured nationally and internationally, including being a part of the Lilith Fair and Mountain Stage and World Cafe. In Austin, Trish is well known for her role in the amazingly popular band 70s/80’s tribute band, SKYROCKET! Also a proud SKYROCKET! member, brother Darin has several solo releases and has played alongside such icons as Todd Rundgren, Christopher Cross and many others. Impressively, his vocal and acting chops won him a job on Broadway, portraying John Lennon in the musical “Lennon.” Recently, Darin has taken over the lead singing role for HeartByrne, the nationally touring Talking Heads tribute band. During this special Under event, Trish and Darin will play (and discuss) a combination of covers and originals that have meaning in their lives, both personally and professionally.

Under The Rock is an innovative new series showcasing acoustic performances from top-level local artists. Facilitated by Dr. Aaron Rochlen, a Professor, Psychologist, & connected music guy, each concert features lyrical discussions and ideas for how audience member can learn, reflect, and relate from the listening experience. An award-winning presenter, “Doc Rock” frequently uses music in his courses & clinical work.

A percentage of profits from each “Under The Rock” concert will be given to HAAM, which provides access to affordable healthcare to greater-Austin’s low-income working musicians, with a focus on prevention and wellness.
