In Memoriam…

Born October 21, 1951, Armadillo Art Squad artist Micael Priest passed away September 11, 2018.

Micael Priest was one of the artist involved in the underground comic scene in Austin, Texas, which was mainly based around concert hall Armadillo World Headquarters.

Together with Jim Franklin and Guy Juke, Priest was the leading force behind creating the famous Austin Concert Hall’s artwork, and has drawn posters and album covers for the greatest names in music including the likes of Frank Zappa and The Grateful Dead.

Please join us Sunday, November 11 from 2-5pm at Threadgill’s World Headquarters for a memorial service celebrating the life and loving memory of Micael. There will be live music, art, tears, laughter, cash bar, and you can order food from the restaurant. Please email us any stories you’d like to share at the memorial at info@southpop.org. We also request that you wear a Hawaiian shirt, if you have one, as Micael often did.
