He’s back! We are thrilled that Stephen Krishnan, one of the most sensitive and communicative players we know, has moved back to Austin after several years of graduate school at USC. Welcome Stephen back for his special return to the Cactus Cafe stage. Then at 9 p.m. ACG Community Engagement Artist Joseph Palmer will lead us on the kind of evocative sonic journey he has become known for. Our gourmet snack sponsor Primizie returns with more delicious and seasonal flavors to go along with the yummy drinks flowing at the Cactus bar.

See you there!
