The South Austin Popular Culture Center (SouthPop) collects, conserves, and exhibits vintage posters and live music ephemera from the 1960s through today to educate future generations on the rich and unique culture that makes Austin the Live Music Capital of the World. Since its founding in 2004 as a community art collective, SouthPop has since become a 501(c)3 non-profit arts organization and is dedicated to being a world class archive and repository of Austin music-related art and memorabilia.
If you’ve never visited or ever heard of the organization, now is the perfect time. On Sunday, Oct 23rd, they’ll be having their 2016-2017 Fundraising Gala. It’s an evening of fun and food with local celebrities who are part of the art and music scene. It’s a great cause, you’ll get to meet some interesting characters, and you can be part of supporting an important part of what makes Austin unique.
