South Austin Soul RENT.

South Austin Soul is Austin's newest...for lack of a better word...creative compound. The large space allows the non-profit to showcase and network artists, musicians, videographers, dancers...and well pretty much any type of creatives. The space allows for workshops, a concert venue, an art gallery, a meeting place, and studio space. The project is headed by Fifth Gallery artist, John Weber who is becoming quickly known for his Stainless Steel kinetic sculpture work. This is a great opportunity for us at THE FIFTH as well, because we now have gallery and wall space to present art from past shows and artists that we just could not house at the gallery due to space.....so think of this as the long arm of THE FIFTH...an extension of sorts.

Anyways-we helped out with their "RENT" party this past week and snapped some shots. The art was great..probably well over 20 artists were represented on many walls. Raffle prizes included a John Weber sculpture piece, Marc Zuazua Prints, original paintings and a sweet old school record player with a huge case courtesy of Far Out Furnishings.

Music was provided by many great local bands, hip hop acts, and DJ's. heres some pics. The spot is located on Manchaca and S.Lamar directly behind Far Out Furnishings.

Gotta get that rent

Dubb Sicks brought the gritty hip hop vibe into the show, and Im not mad at that

This guy was a singer for the rock band THE HOODRATS...real cool performance, Im glad I had a chance to see them, hopefully we can catch them again at some point.
