“Live at Raul’s” Re-released by SteadyBoy Records and SouthPop,
February 16th 2-6PM
Austin, Tx.— In the first of what will be many collaborations between SteadyBoy Records and SouthPop, ‘Live at Raul’s,40th Anniversary Release Party’ promises an event that satisfies the punk in all of us.
The album features seminal Austin punk bands: The Explosives, The Skunks, The Next, Terminal Mind and Standing Waves. SteadyBoy founder, Freddie Steady Krc spearheaded the production in 1979, where the album sold 1000 copies in two weeks in Austin, Houston, Dallas and San Antonio. Says Krc about the re-release now: “Live at Raul’s” is connected to a special time in Austin music. Only 1000 copies were pressed back in 1979 and we wanted to make the vinyl available again with this limited pressing and make it digitally available for the first time.”
The release party, Saturday, February 16th from 2-6PM will feature members of all the original punk bands for photo ops and signing as well as live performances from Raul’s Royal Foot and teen wunderkinds, Hotmom. Admission is $5 suggested donation, or free for SouthPop members. The exhibit which runs from the 15th through the 17th, will feature posters from Raul’s, rare photographs from local chroniclers of the Austin punk scene and other ephemera. Admission to the gallery is always free during SouthPop’s regular business hours, 1-6pm, Thursday-Sunday.
