NEW ORLEANS - Scenehound, a first-of-its-kind crowdfinding mobile app is expanding to its third location in Austin, Texas. Scenehound’s expansion to the “Live Music Capital of the World” is a result of the New Orleans-based company’s rapid growth since its launch in 2016.
“This past year-and-a-half has been a whirlwind,” said Michael Underwood, CEO and founder of Scenehound. “We’ve experienced fantastic user growth since we launched in New Orleans in early 2016 and our most recent market in Columbus, Ohio is booming. We couldn’t be more excited to roll Scenehound out to the people of Austin. We know both Austinites and UT students will love its convenience.”
The real-time crowd information app, connects users to their community while providing them with an up-to-the-minute snapshot of the restaurant and bar activity in their area.

Austin’s restaurant and bar scene has truly become a destination experience, not only for its residents but tourists alike. When we started Scenehound Austin was always one of the cities I was most excited to expand to. It was just a matter of time - and he we are!”
