    Once Upon A Time In Austin 

    By June 1970 here in River City the groundbreaking music club the Vulcan Gas Company was closed after an almost 3-year run. Several people, including artist Jim Franklin, knew there had to be a con­tinuation of that energy and cultural creativity. Enter Shiva's Headband and their manager at the time, Eddie Wilson. There's a vast amount of lore and mythology about how events unfolded but in essence, due to Eddie's dogged perseverance, Shiva's record deal money and a lucky outside urination event, the location of this new venture was found. Thus, began the Armadillo World Headquarters, the music venue that changed Austin culture forever.
