This far-out map and calendar was designed by Kerry Awn in 1979 for display at the Soap Creek Saloon, an iconic music venue and dance hall located on the northern outskirts of Austin, Texas. The club was organized by George Majewski and his wife Carlyne in 1973 and was known for a variety of music genres including country, blues, and swing until it closed in 1985. Acts included Stevie Ray Vaughn, Alvin Crow & the Pleasant Valley Boys, and singer Marcia Ball.
Described by a regular, “The rundown shack of a venue was on what was then a godforsaken stretch of Bee Caves Road, and the rutted dirt trail that led to it was even more notorious.”
The map occupying the top 2/3 of the page identifies the location of Soap Creek near the top and labels primary transportation routes and a few scattered locations of interest across Austin. A calendar at the bottom presents the musical lineup for June 1979, ending with the George Majewski Look-A-Like Contest and Uranium Savages on the 31st.
