Recently attended an absolutely gorgeous and intimate show at Threadgill’s north location. Friends BettySoo and Kevin Welch traded acoustic gems and enjoyed one another’s company. Michael Fracasso was called up from the audience to play, as was Jamie Harris. A listening room full of big old smiles and a few small tears.
Some say that this building, known as “Old No. 1”, birthed the Austin music scene when Kenneth Threadgill asked Janis Joplin to come up and help him with his yodeling.
