It has been called one of the most remarkable events in American music history. On Sept. 24, 1965, Bob Dylan played his first ever concert in Texas. It was also the very first time he shared the stage with the group of musicians who would come to be known as The Band. This explosive combination which changed music history forever was first ignited at the Austin Municipal Auditorium.

On Sunday, Sept 27, 2015 Threadgills will present a collaboration of local musical icons and lone star legends paying tribute to this historic concert. Proceeds will benefit SIMS Foundation, celebrating 20 years of providing low-cost mental health services for Austin musicians.

This collaborative musical experience by influential Texas musicians performing on stage a few steps away from the site of the original 1965 concert is sure to be infused with interactive energy that evokes a hopeful vision of an evolving and changing Austin culture.

In the tradition of Dylan and the Band’s Last Waltz, group voices will rise to leave the audience with a sense that music is the unifying, healing force that links the past to the present and inspires harmony for the future.
