Joey Arcidiacono is not your typical Texan. Originally wanting to flee Texas, he realized after three years Chapman University, in California, was not the place for him. As a senior communications major at St. Edward’s with a minor in advertising, Arcidiacono knew there was no better place than “The Live Music Capital of the World” to pursue his music and film career.
Recently attending ACL, where he saw his favorite performer Neil Young, Arcidiacono, “loves Austin because you’re able to just do something fun and interesting everyday.” Although he has plans to travel to Croatia this summer, Arcidiacono plans to attend SXSW again this year as well as continue to submerge himself in Austin’s food, music and film scene. Compared to LA, “Austin is a relatively small town; however, the people are pretty friendly, there is so much to do and you can actually go out and do it.”
Joey has recently been playing music ranging anywhere from, “psychedelic rock to jazz and blues.” Living in Austin allows him play and listen to different types of music, as it differs with whatever environment he is in. With a little over a semester before he graduates Joey makes sure to play music as much as he can, as he, “one day hopes to tour around the country.”
