Micael Priest

One of my favorite three color Michael Priest posters is his Stevie Miller poster at the Austin Municipal Auditorium

But I really like the black whites that he did when he first came back to Austin upon his return from Fort Worth in 1972 where he was working at the Sketch Pad. This is one of my favorites. It's a show at Mother Earth which ultimately turned into the first Whole Foods.

Here's another early poster from Micael  for an Elton John show at the San Antonio Municipal Auditorium in 1972.  It was sponsored by KEXL which was the hot San Antonio station at the time. This was a great show.

Scholz Garten Restoration

Back in 1987, Eddie Wilson, Michael Osborne, and Phil Vitek bought the lease at Scholz Garten from Larry Bales.  The restoration won the Historic Preservation Award from the Heritage Society of Austin.

Although Wilson and Osborne have been long gone from the joint for years, the award winning restoration remains.
