South Austin Museum of Popular Culture

1516-B S. Lamar, 512/440-8318
Hours: Thu.-Sun., 1-6pm; also by appointment
Preservationists of Austin's ruggedly eclectic heritage, "SouthPop" serves as the preeminent museum of our city's wonderfully weird music culture. Chief among collections of exalted ephemera are works of poster artists, from Jim Franklin's Vulcan-ic psychedelia and Armadillo Art Squad sketches to colorful prints by Kozik and Kuhn. Concert photography and musical artifacts are also safeguarded at the Planet K annex, outside of which a funky memorial wall honors departed local heroes. SouthPop, operated under the care of Director Leea Mechling, is “open by appointment or by change.”
