Wild About Music on East Sixth Street has a fancy little sister called Austin Rocks Texas (ART), a 1,350 sf retail space at the corner of 2nd and Guadalupe. The store features upscale apparel, jewelry, artwork and other unique items, and is a perfect stop after a concert at ACL.
From the press release:
ART will celebrate with an official Grand Opening event this coming Saturday, June 2nd from 1:00-4:00pm, with music from pop-rock songstress, Jennifer Ellen Cook, refreshments from Saint Arnold Brewery, Mama Fu’s and Texas Music Water, as well as drawings for prizes that include a Dean acoustic guitar valued at $400.
The grand opening celebration will be during a larger, district-wide festival / fundraiser called The SoundCheck music festival, where several bands will play. Proceeds will go to the Comfort The Children International (CTC).
In the interest of full disclosure, we feel we should let you know the store is co-owned by DAB Contributor Fred Schmidt and his wife, Shelley Meyer.
