“The folks who are bearing the brunt of this are the artists who are the ones creating,” Green said. “They’re dying to get out there.” It wouldn’t just be the fans benefiting from a renewed summer concert schedule, either.
With a budding reputation for live music, Waco’s footprint in the industry could grow bigger than ever once the shows are back on. Selman put the phrase in white letters on a black baseball cap and decided to start selling them online, with all the proceeds going to Waco Family Medicine.
Through group text messages, Selman started using the phrase “vaccinated af” – which has a few deviations, but is another way of saying someone is very vaccinated. She says they have sold hundreds of caps so far, and wants to reward Waco Family Medicine for the work they do in the community.
Before people are flocking back to festivals, however, Selman came up with an idea to serve as a fundraiser for those helping the community get vaccinated. “I honestly believe the music scene in Waco is gonna be better than it ever was, because people are really going to want to get out,” says co-founder Katie Selman. “It’s going to be a fun summer.”
You can order your cap here. “They service a part of the community that does not have health insurance, and it’s good, quality healthcare,” Selman said. “That’s where I was vaccinated. So might as well donate to the place that got me vaccinated, and also just do something for a really good organization here in Waco.”
