Republic of Texas Tattoo

Republic of Texas Tattoo Studio manager Jon Claeton, and fellow tattooer Donny Silverman, have combined their love of music with their talent for ink to create the Republic of Texas Alternative Arts Series. A bi-weekly event held at their 2000 Southern Oaks Drive location in South Austin, the series features free live performances by local artists, in addition to their body art services.

In the "Live Music Capital of the World" combining these two creative arts seemed a natural progression. "Tattoos and music have gone together since the beginning of rock-n-roll," says tattooer Donny Silverman. "As all the arts have evolved, including music and tattooing ... it's cool to have -- and be a part of -- this little public outlet that's open to presenting all of it!"

Jon Claeton, manager of the Republic of Texas Tattoo Studio, believes they've hit on a magic combination. "The creative process is always heightened by music, and having live music here is great for tattooing." Claeton went on to say that "tattooing to live music is the best ... thing that ever happened."

The opening show of the series was held January 15, 2008 and featured Audiopium, who performed electric jazz funk. Free pizza from Austin Pizza and beverages were provided to everyone who stopped by.

Upcoming performances include The Nematoads on 1/29, a benefit for KOOP radio on Fat Tuesday (2/5) featuring music by the Bustamoovalators and authentic Louisiana cuisine provided by Jad Duplechain, Harry Bodine on 2/19, and Carl Smith & ECFA on 2/26. Tentative future performances include Graham Reynolds, Chris Duarte, and Big Star Burlesque.

Admission is free, and complimentary food and beverages are served. Donations for the series and band tips are accepted. Performers may sell CDs, DVDs, t-shirts, etc. For more information, call Jon or Donny at 512-443-7100.
