Cheer Up Charlie’s last night on the east side

Cheer Up Charlie’s was ousted from their original and magical east side location by the onward march of industry and deep-pocketed land developers. I remember visiting this place when they only served vegan chocolates and kombucha. They’ve put the time and love and heart into it, and its magic has grown to be a favorite spot in Austin. They’ve always been dedicated to fostering local artistic and creative expression, and I’ve had many spectacular nights here.

They’ll be moving across the divide to Red River soon.

Here’s a few shots of their last night on the east side, with …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead and the Flying Turns.

I edited this set while listening to this fantastic mix by Anamanaguchi!
