Turn the volume up because ATXN, the City of Austin’s government access channel, will debut the first episode of its new music series at 7 p.m. on Friday, March 8.

Titled “Sound ON!”, the new show takes cues from ATXN’s former Emmy-winning series, “Notes in Time.” Producers said the series will include in-depth interviews, live performances, and subjects that span generations and genres.

The first episode will feature Chief Cleopatra, a self-proclaimed “soul rock” artist known for her songs “Friends” and “Belushi,” and premiere on ATXN.TV and ATXN’s YouTube channel.

Chief Cleopatra fans will also be able to see her live during SXSW at The Grackle, 1700 E. 6th St., at 9 p.m. on Saturday, March 16.

New episodes — following Brother Thunder, Moving Panoramas, and Tomar & the FCs — will drop on Fridays at 7 p.m. throughout March.
