Release Date: 2009-04-08

Dr. Michael Escamilla, Director of the South Texas Medical Genetics Research Group, discusses what he has learned about bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and the human mind. Avid Current readers will recall Escamilla’s long-term role in the local music scene. He formed perhaps SA’s original New Wave band, No Way Muffo, back in the early ’80s, and later pioneered the way for bands to play at Taco Land. Escamilla’s brief friendship with outsider artist/folk singer Daniel Johnston inspired his research. $10, 6pm, Witte Museum, 3801 Broadway, (210) 357-1900
