Hello friends! Austin music legends Eddie Wilson and Jesse Sublett are my guests on the show today! Eddie Wilson started The Armadillo World Headquarters in 1971, brought the cowboys and the hippies together under one strange and beautiful roof to bond over music made by people that would go on to be some of music's greatest legends. He and musician/author, Jesse Sublett wrote the definitive story of the celebrated, historical music/art venue. "Armadillo World Headquarters: A Memoir" by Eddie Wilson with Jesse Sublett is an amazing account of the place and the people set in motion the Austin music scene that we know today. You can find it at We have a great conversation about getting AWHQ started, why Eddie left AWHQ, great stories about the old days at The Adrmadillo, Threadgill's, Thanksgiving with The Grateful Dead and much, much more. I really loved this book and had a blast chatting it up with these two legendary gentlemen. Enjoy. Let's get down!

hello friends! i hope you're all dealing with the end of summer with grace and a nice tan. i wanted to swim today, but i've been inside doing a podcast, working on shows i recorded last week and getting ready to run to a session with a guy i'm producing a song for. then later tonight, i'm playing my last "johnny goudie & friends" summer residency at strange brew. i'm going to miss playing there every week. you get spoiled in a room like that. everyone that works there is totally cool, it's artist oriented and it's so nice to play a listening room. anyway, i have a great show tonight, tuesday, september 9th at 8 pm at strange brew lounge side. my guests are, ryan holley, joe reyes and kathy valentine!!!!!! kathy doesn't do acoustic shows so this is a rare treat. come out and see all of these great artists and celebrate my last show of this super fun guest for episode 307 is my dear old friend, former momo's owner, paul oveisi! momo's and it's owner were an incredibly important part of the music austin scene during the time it was open. paul wasn't just a club owner, he helped form bands, (the heathens, the coveters) he managed bands (dan dyer, the heathens) he encouraged a culture of community around momo's by having late night jams, suggesting collaborations and of course giving musicians work. paul moved to new york around three years ago with his girlfriend, suzanna choffel and his absence and the closing of momo's have left a hole in what some see as a scene that has not changed for the better. he opened a place in manhattan called, zirzamin which was destroyed by hurricane sandy a couple of months after i played there. anyway, he's moved on to restaurants and he's as interesting and entertaining as ever. i hope you enjoy our conversation. i sure did. let's get down!ciao! -jg
