South Texas Popular Culture Center Presents:

The Austin – San Antonio Connection:

~So Close and Yet So Far Out~



Opening Saturday June 14, 2014, SouthPop and its sister organization in San Antonio, TexPop, present an exhibition exploring the shared music history between the two cities. Separated by only 80 miles of I35, Austin and San Antonio could not be more different. Still, both cities have created musical acts that reflect their different local cultures and draw national and international renown, while playing host to major acts from all over the globe.

The Austin – San Antonio Connection is a unique and vibrant one made up of students, hippies, Hispanics, and military personnel, a wide range of rich and poor communities nestled within one of America’s busiest corridors. Come see a selection of the art and music that has passed between the two for decades; helping to define Texan-American culture both in and out of Central Texas.

The exhibition opens with a party on June 14, 2014 at 7:09pm, with a special preview for members only on Friday, June 13 at the same time. Admission to the event on Saturday has a $5 cover charge (free for members) with a cash beer and wine bar, as well as live, local music and light refreshments. The exhibition runs through July 12, 2014. Admission to the museum is always free; open Thursday – Sunday 1-6pm, or by appointment or chance.

There is no parking at SouthPop for the event, please park on Collier Street. For more information, contact the Center at 512-440-8318 | |
