Currently heralded as one of the best books on the Austin 70’s music scene, Armadillo World Headquarters will be for sale at the Pecan Street Association booth (“MERCH” booth, Sixth St. & Trinity) during the festival.
As an extra-EXTRA-special treat, authors Eddie Wilson & Jesse Sublett will be at the booth on Saturday, 2-4pm, signing copies!
Many know Eddie Wilson as the owner of Threadgill’s, and former owner of the Armadillo World Headquarters where Austin’s Live Music Capital legend took root. The Austin Chronicle’s Kevin Curtain described Eddie “as a Texan amalgam of concert promotions legend Bill Graham and circus tamer P.T. Barnum, but the memoir reveals a Mark Twain streak of insightfully folksy prose.”
He joined former Skunks bass guitarist and multi-genred and heralded author Jesse Sublett to create a colorful record of the Armadillo’s heyday.
