Join SouthPop at the Armadillo Christmas Bazaar!
Ever wanted to snag a part of our collection? SouthPop will be hosting our regular booth at the 40th Annual Armadillo Christmas Bazaar. We’ll be selling t-shirts, greeting cards, coffee mugs, prints, graphic novels, and of course, vintage posters. We’ll even be hosting a plethora of book signings! Check out who will be stopping by our booth:
Richard Zelade: Zelade began writing professionally in 1976. His work has appeared in Texas Parks & Wildlife, Texas Monthly, People, Southern Living, American Way, Women’s Sport and Fitness, and many other publications. He is the author of several guidebooks, including Hill Country and Austin, published by Lone Star Press in Houston. He has also served as editor in chief of International Business magazine, Global Business Newsletter, and several other computer-industry magazines.
He’ll be at SouthPop’s booth Wednesday December 16th, from 10am – 1pm, signing his multitude of books including (but not limited to): Austin in the Jazz Age, Austin Murder & Mayhem, and Guy Town by Gaslight.
Danny Garrett: Danny Garrett began creating music poster art at the same time that such art began to chronicle the establishment of the Austin music scene in the early 1970s. Over the course of the next two decades, Texas’s capital city became a world-renowned music mecca, and Austin music artists played a vital role in capturing and sharing the vibrant culture swelling within what would become the “Live Music Capital of the World.”
Describing the evolution of the Austin music poster, Garrett richly and poignantly details the history of the music, musicians, and venues that brought the surprising harmony of “the Austin Sound” to a country otherwise polarized by antagonistic cultural, social, and political perspectives.
Garrett’s collection includes posters for Willie Nelson and his Fourth of July Picnics, blues greats like B. B. King, Muddy Waters, and Stevie Ray Vaughan, and a host of great rock musicians—along with narratives that detail the rise of such iconic Austin venues as Armadillo World Headquarters and Antone’s.
Danny will not only be available to sign copies of his book, Weird Yet Strange: Notes from an Austin Music Artist, but the many posters of his we’ll have for sale! He’ll be at the Bazaar Wednesday and Thursday the 16th and 17th from 4pm – 7pm.
Tiffany Harelik: Born in Austin, raised in Buffalo Gap, Tiffany Harelik is Texas to the bone. She’s on the road trip of a lifetime, exploring backstories and recipes in efforts to preserve culture and cuisine. From her first project, The Trailer Food Diaries Cookbook Series, to her recent Big Bend Cookbook, and upcoming Terlingua Chili Cookbook, you’ll want to follow her adventures with every book in her collection.
Tiffany will be at our booth to talk Texas food Friday the 18th from 10am – 1pm.
Jesse Sublett: The author will be at our booth promoting his book 1960s Austin Gangsters, reviewed by Tim Stegall at the Austin Chronicle as:
1960s Austin Gangsters sinks its hooks in you and does not let go. It reads like a densely plotted novel. It’s local history that frequently gets overlooked. It uncovers a set of characters who, for all their evil and malice, were nevertheless colorful, lively, and interesting.
It’s an Austin weirder than any municipal marketing slogan and likely embarrassing to the Chamber of Commerce. In other words: It’s fun!
Sublett will be at the Christmas Bazaar Saturday and Sunday the 19th and 20th from 10am – 2pm.
Sam Hurt: You can find out all about Sam’s many, many projects in media such as comics, painting, sculpture, illustration, posters, animation and theatrical work on his website at http://samhurt.com/.
Not only will he be at the booth Saturday and Sunday 19th and 20th, but we’ll be selling his greeting cards, coffee mugs, graphic novels, and prints.
Mark Proct: Travel through a decade with The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Jimmie Vaughan and 2015 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble. Backstage and on the road with both The arc angels and Storyville. An inside view of life on the road. From Austin’s Auditorium Shores to the studios of London. From the Royal Albert Hall to New York’s Madison Square Garden. Moments in time captured on film backstage, in the studio and on the tour bus. Never before seen photos capture the journey in the pages of his book Home Today, Gone Tomorrow!
Mark will be at our booth Saturday and Sunday from 4pm – 7pm.
