In Austin, Texas, a city known for it’s great guitarists, Van Wilks has long been lauded as one of the city’s master players. His talents as a guitarist and band leader have won him consistent critical praise and a string of honors that was capped when he was voted by Austin music fans into the Austin Chronicle’s "Texas Music Hall of Fame" alongside the state’s most legendary musical talents.
Van will showcase his extraordinary musical talent at Strange Brew Lounge-Side this 4th of July evening. Tickets for the show are $5.
Since happy hour is 5-7, I've posted the meetup time for 6pm so that we'll have some time to mingle and chat. Van's show should start at 7. And more than likely, this will be Van "unplugged".
Then after the show, we (or whomever wants to) can meetup at St. Edwards University (behind the administration building) where we will have a hilltop view of the fireworks display at Auditorium Shores. It's a great place to view the display. The fireworks display starts at 9:30. It's always a good idea to claim your spot on the grounds before it gets dark. Bring a blanket or a chair...and a cooler with beverages of your choice. Some people come and make a picnic of it! We can mingle a bit after Van's show at Strange Brew so we don't get to the University TOO early. It should be a fun evening! (If I remember, I'll bring bug spray...just in case) :)
