Vulcan Gas Company Poster - Opening Night

Vulcan Gas Company Poster

See this Vulcan Gas Company poster from the Grand Opening with Conqueroo and Shiva’s Headband.

Taking a cue from the ballrooms of the West Coast psychedelic scene, a group of students at the University of Texas at Austin formed a cooperative venture that resulted in the opening of the Vulcan Gas Company. This was to be Texas' foremost psychedelic dance establishment.

The Vulcan actually helped start Armadillo World Headquarters, which begat most every other club on the Austin music scene. An argument could be made that this was really the very first in the family tree of Austin clubs that is now known as the Live Music Capital of the World.
