Barton Springs Eternal Reunion
June 21, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
From the Save Barton Creek Association and the Save Our Springs Alliance –
In April 1992 a group of Austin musicians, artists and activists recorded the song “Barton Springs Eternal” (by Bill Oliver), in a colorful, fun-filled two day session at Cedar Creek Studios in South Austin. The video version has now been edited (thanks to Jenny Clark and Fred Remmert) into a lively, all star Austin effort that retains the energy of the era and the importance of the movement. At the time, a 17 minute video documentary, “I Sung for the Springs” about the session was produced for ACTV by Jenny Clark. That program has been revived from the city archives, dusted off, and digitized!
This calls for a celebration! We’re hosting a “video launch and reunion party” for Thursday, June 21, 6–8 and 8-10 (two shows) at Threadgill’s South. We’ll show the videos, and have a sound system in place for any “special guests” musicians to perform. Bob Livingston and Bill Oliver will kick off the music. This will be a fun reunion, an update on current Barton Springs issues from SOS / SBCA and a great party!
Hosted by Bill Oliver, Bob Livingston, Save Barton Springs, Save Barton Creek
