The Backyard has been an important venue for live music in Austin for many years. It has been voted "Best Open Air Venue" by the Austin Chronicle and "Best Place To Hear Live Music" by Citysearch.
Artists from Willie Nelson to David Bowie have graced its stage. Closing The Backard would be closing one of Austin's most important music venues, and certainly, would not be "keeping austin weird."
Although it has been said a new Backyard would be built, it would not retain the history of the old one.
We, the undersigned, ask Tim O' Connor, CEO of Direct Events, to reconsider the closing of The Backyard music venue.
