Right in the heart of UT campus, Scholz Garten is one of the most popular places in town to watch Longhorn football. IN the past few months, we’ve noticed that Scholz Garten has also been a great place to find live music. The best part? The shows have been free to the public.
On Friday, September 28, Scholtz Garten will play host to two of the region’s best indie bands. The night kicks off with Austin-based The White White Lights (TWWL). Fronted by the dynamic Jenny Gacy, TWWL combine the best of angsty alt-rock with electronic synths and the whirling guitar shredding of member Jonas Wilson (formerly of Lomita). TWWL perform at 10 p.m.
Following TWWL will be San Antonio-based atmospheric-indie band Pop Pistol. The young trio is one of San Antonio’s most popular bands. In March the band received the honor of “Best Indie Band” from San Antonio’s alt-weekly newspaper, San Antonio Current. Pop Pistol perform at midnight.
Scholz Garten is located at 1607 San Jacinto. Admission is free. Music starts at 10 p.m. 21+ are welcome. Parking can be found in the state parking garages after 6 p.m. State parking garages can be found next to, behind and across from Scholz Garten.
