Artist, Author, & Musician Alan Schaefer, Joe Nick Patoski, Rick McNulty, and Katie Salzmann speaking & signing Homegrown: Austin Music Posters 1967 to 1982
Join us this evening for Alan Schaefer & Joe Nick Patoski discussing their newest book, Homegrown: Austin Music Posters 1967 to 1982. Before Austin Became the "live music capital of the world" and attracted tens of thousands of music fans, it had a vibrant local music scene that spanned late sixties pschedelic and avant-garde rock to early eighties punk. Venues such as the Vulcan Gas Company and the Armadillo World Headquarters hosted both innovative local musicians and big-name touring acts. Poster artists not only advertised the performances--they visually defined the music and culture of Austin during this pivotal period. Their posters promoted an alternative lifestyle that permeated the city and reflected Austin's transformation from a sleepy university town into a veritable oasis of underground artistic and cultural activity in the state of Texas.
Refreshments at this event will be generously provided by Saint Arnold Brewing Company.
