K23's Second Birthday Jam

For two years, husband/wife dynamo Gem and Glenn Hotvet's tiny concrete venue K23 has put on a seemingly endless stream of important art shows (though they at least temporarily dropped that aspect from their operations several months ago) and mind-melting musical onslaughts of galactic vision. They've hosted some impressive acts for a venue of their size (especially a new-ish one), including Pure X, Deradoorian, Pearl Charles, Gary Wilson, Holy Wave, Sugar Candy Mountain, Golden Dawn Arkestra, Colleen Green, Destruction Unit, Har Mar Superstar and more. Their shows are all ages and their vibe is peace and love and, as Allen Ginsberg once put it, “cosmic vibrations.” On Saturday, K23 will celebrate its second birthday with one of their finest shows to date, featuring the tessellating, psychonaut beat magic of Al Lover, who describes his process as “taking drugs to make music to take drugs to,” the postmodern electro-psych voodoo of Houston's Studded Left, formerly Indian Jewelry, the jarring and doomy, precision drone-psych of Austin's Black Liquid Drop, and the support of beloved head-trippin' locals Flower Jesus Quintet (who may debut new music) and Shiva's Medicine Chest.

    Owned by a man with beard enough for two, Mark Vollmer’s coffee trailer offers quality coffee and pastries to cappuccino-craving commuters at 410 and Nacogdoches. In the time since it’s opened, the area surrounding this coffee trailer has transformed into a hub of food vendors with varied seating options, some natural greenery and occasional live music. Grab an iced latte (there’s house-made almond milk for vegans, too) and admire one of the classic muscle cars that frequently stop by.
