Dr. Shane Matt

By Tim Sapp

Rock and Roll Dentist Supports Austin Musicians

Shane Matt, DDS, came to Austin because the trade magazines sold it as a great place to start a dental practice, and because it was a great place for live music. His experience in Texas certainly supports those conclusions.

This spring, Dr. Matt found a new way to combine his burgeoning dental practice with his love of local music, hosting a live music event at his downtown office during the annual SXSW festivities. The three-day parallel festival was called “Mouth-by-Mouthwest,” and the name itself was perhaps the biggest impetus behind the show’s creation.

“It actually started as a joke,” Dr. Matt recalled, “I was saying that we should have a show called ‘Mouth-by’ and the girls at the office kept talking about it, because the name was so funny. One day, I was telling David Garza about it, and he said we had to put that together. That’s where it came from.”

Dr. Matt’s event raised money from donations and bar receipts for HAAM and MusiCares, two organizations that focus money towards healthcare for musicians. It was a natural fit for a dentist who already provides inexpensive dental care for local and traveling musicians.

After one successful festival, Dr. Matt has plans to make Mouth-by a regular part of the Austin landscape. The venue is small, though, so you might need a reservation to get a badge next year.

“Actually, we were still seeing patients,” Dr. Matt laughs. “We made ‘all-access’ badges for them. When they finished, they could go upstairs and have a drink, and listen to the music.  Hopefully this will become an annual event.”
