1100 E. Fifth, Austin, 78702, 512/494-9093
An Eastside warehouse gussied up into a hip neighborhood event space, the old metal Quonset hut that once stored Tops Furniture now hosts weddings, corporate events, foodie meetups and – because two of the investors are Transmission Events honchos Graham Williams and James Moody – some incredible concerts. The raw space, resembling an empty airplane hangar and capable of holding over 1,000 people, was ground zero at the final Chaos in Tejas festival and hosted a madhouse SXSW appearance of Death Grips where a stage was constructed in the center of the building. Fair Market also has an expansive patio for outdoor festivities.
The date's been announced and the planning is in full swing. Austin's alt-Pride celebration and march returns to town to rain glitter and queer pride all over Downtown. Sat., June 2.
