Thanks to everyone who joined us for Hoodstock III. It was a great success!
In fact, it may have been our best Hoodstock so far. Throughout the night, we estimate that
more than 100 people showed up to hear great performers, including Barbara K & Richard Bowden, The Possum
Posse and the amazing Austin Lounge Lizards. Attendees also had the opportunity to participate in
a silent auction. We sold beautiful items by great local artists including work by Alan Pogue, Jim McCullough Studio, Carlos Lowry, Just Seeds Art Collective, JoAnn Mulert, and Malachi Muncy. Those in attendance also had the opportunity to hear from a number of soldiers who currently benefit from the support Under the Hood
provides. It was a great evening of fun, music, friendship, and serious conversation.
Show at Under the Hood, which opened on September 30th and was open through the month of October. Many amazing local veteran, soldier and civilian artists showed their work at this event. You can view photos of the show here.
