Electric Church

Members of the psychedelic rock outfit Sun Machine and visual artist Fez Moreno took over an abandoned house of worship last February and it quickly became one of Austin’s most intriguing underground venues. The Electric Church, where bands play drenched in liquid light show projections, stacks local and regional talent several nights a week as well as recurring open jams where musicians from all walks come together to improvise – all amounting to an important addition to the scene.
