“Feed Your Head,” The Rag Blog‘s “Old Skool” April Fool’s benefit bash, held on Sunday night, April 1, at Jovita’s in Austin, was a rousing success. Featuring memorable performances by historic Texas musicians Shiva’s Headband, Greezy Wheels, and Jesse Sublett — and with legendary surrealist graphic artist Jim Franklin signing his commemorative poster — the show drew a packed crowd of nostalgic revelers who came out to support The Rag Blog and Rag Radio and to just plain have fun.

Rag Blog art director Jim Retherford’s gallery of photos, below, captures the spirit of the night and the character of the, well, characters in attendance.

    Obviously a wonderful event, which I’m very sorry I couldn’t attend. And the photos are great. The bands look almost as young as I remember them–and so do the revelers! Did anyone record or better yet video them? Hope there’ll be another one while we’re all still young! David Edwards
