The Joe Anthony Project is happy to announce a formal partnership with the City of San Antonio’s Tricentennial celebration. We plan to hold a commemorative event recognizing San Antonio’s historic role as “Heavy Metal Capital of the World.” Hosted by the UTSA – Institute of Texan Cultures, this event consists of a panel discussion made up of prominent musicians, promoters, and radio disc jockeys who nurtured this influential music scene. The discussion will increase public awareness about the lasting historical memory surrounding this community and the efforts to document and preserve it for the future.
The panel is set on the calendar for October, 2018. A fixed date, time, list of participants, and additional details will be forthcoming.
