"Dead Venues Live" (Ep. 1) :: Featuring Ume
Music reflects history, and so do the places that play host to countless shows, crowds and scenes over time. Dead Venues Live combines today's artists with yesterday's haunts, showcasing performances by up-and-coming bands on location, where these landmark venues first started checking IDs.
A huge part of Austin's music scene in the '80s, Club Foot (which lived where the Frost Bank Tower now stands) helped break such seminal punk legends as The Skunks. Veteran musician/writer Jesse Sublett talks with Ume frontwoman Lauren Larson about Club Foot's checkered past, shedding light on the history of this venerable Austin institution.
