So Very Curious, Indeed

By: Laurie Gallardo

AMM Oct. 26 2023: A Curious Mix of People release show at The Parlor.
Sixteen Deluxe

Surely you heard about it on an extra cool episode of My KUTX.

Your AMM host recommends A Curious Mix of People: The Underground Scene of ‘90s Austin by aforementioned My KUTX hosts (and former KVRX DJs, by the way), filmmaker Richard Whymark and writer Greg Beets. Both authors experienced the madness and mayhem firsthand, so this sharply crafted compilation of interviews with fellow ’90s scenesters, show and venue photos, and badass flyers provides a fascinating and entertaining oral history of Austin’s burgeoning underground scene.

Following a recent panel at Austin Central Library for the book launch, the celebration continues with several familiar faces reuniting for a big show Saturday Oct. 28 at The Parlor, 4301 Guadalupe. A few original bands, and some new iterations make one sick line-up: Glorium, the original Austin version of Gomez, The Living Pins, Jesus Christ Superfly, Yard Work, The John-Pauls, and Hammel On Trial. It all kicks off with a special invocation presented by Mike Henry at 3 p.m.

-Special thanks to Richard Whymark for use of the photos below (Sincola, Inhalants, Wannabes) and on KUTX’s homepage (Cathy Shive of Furry Things) for the Austin Music Minute.
