Armadillo World Headquarters
The Armadillo, located in Austin, Texas, became the hotbed of rock music in the South after the Vulcan Gas Company closed its doors in 1969. Thousands of artists played at the Armadillo between 1970 and 1980, and many established their careers there. The Armadillo was a small venue with a capacity of about 1,500 people. Concert-goers would sit on the floor in front of the stage on carpets that were pieced together. While we have never seen a complete listing of every Armadillo show that was held, they number in the hundreds. Acts as diverse as Cheech & Chong, The Clash, Bob Seger, Ted Nugent, Linda Ronstadt, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Jeff Beck played there and were represented in posters by Jim Franklin, Guy Juke, Michael Priest, Kerry Awn, Ken Featherston, and others.
