If you’ve got a few minutes, you should read this delightful “Wayback Wednesday” post from Austin360’s Peter Blackstock about a 1984 UPI story that proves the more things change, the more they stay the same.
The story’s headline is “Austin’s high-tech boom may be strangling legendary music scene” and is dated July 20, 1984. Read Peter’s post on whether that actually happened (spoiler: no) and what some of the most prominent music acts in Austin were at the time.
