Armadillo book headquarters? On Tuesday it’s the Austin History Center

“Armadillo World Headquarters” by Eddie Wilson with Jesse Sublett.

You may have seen the excerpts we’ve been posting recently from the fascinating new book “Armadillo World Headquarters: A Memoir” by Eddie Wilson, the founder of the legendary 1970s Austin music venue. On Tuesday, the Austin History Center gets in on the act.

Wilson and writer Jesse Sublett, who assisted Wilson with the book, will team up for a meet-the-authors event at the Center, next to the downtown public library at 810 Guadalupe St. After discussing how the book came together and telling some stories about the venue that jump-started Austin’s rise to Live Music Capital of the World status, Sublett and Wilson will sign copies of the book. The free event starts at 6:30 p.m.

In the meantime, check out more of the passages that the American-Statesman’s Michael Barnes has shared with the author’s consent:
