About this product
- DescriptionBefore 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 psychedelic and avant-garde rock to early eighties punk. Venues such as the Vulcan Gas Company and the Armadillo World Headquarters hosted both invative local musicians and big-name touring acts. Poster artists t 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. This book presents a definitive survey of music poster art produced in Austin between 1967 and 1982. It vividly illustrates four distinct generations of posters-psychedelic art of the Vulcan Gas Company, early works from the Armadillo World Headquarters, an emerging variety of styles from the mid-1970s, and the radical visual aesthetic of punk-produced by such rewned artists as Gilbert Shelton, Jim Franklin, Kerry Awn, Micael Priest, Guy Juke, Ken Featherston, NOXX, and Danny Garrett. Setting the posters in context, Texas music and pop-culture authority Joe Nick Patoski details the history of music posters in Austin, and artist and poster art scholar Nels Jacobson explores the lives and techniques of the artists.
- Author BiographyAlan Schaefer is a lecturer in the Department of English at Texas State University and a musician. Joe Nick Patoski has been a football nut ever since attending his first football game in 1956 and securing his first chinstrap from his kindergarten teacher, who was married to TCU center Arve Martin. In high school, he participated in the Friday night ritual as a cheerleader for the Arlington Heights High School Yellow Jackets. A former staff writer for Texas Monthly, Patoski has been writing about Texas and Texans for four decades. His many publications include biographies of Willie Nelson, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Selena. Nels Jacobson has been researching, writing about, and creating poster art for over thirty years. Under the moniker Jagmo, he's designed posters for shows from Stevie Ray Vaughan's Rites of Spring celebration in Austin to Los Lobos at San Francisco's storied Fillmore. His work is archived at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Jacobson serves on the board of the Rock Poster Society, and he is a founding director of both the South Austin Popular Culture Center and the American Poster Institute. In addition to his poster scholarship and design work, he has been practicing copyright law since 1995.
