Swerving South

South Austin’s Swerve Coffee Lounge is having a party tonight: “Experimental artist Ken Adams will screen excerpts from his Neo-psycedelic digital videos. The creator of Alien DreamTime, Strange Attractor, and his current project, Imaginary Muslims & Other Perfect Strangers, Adams will also screen music videos featuring OHN, Govinda, Lux Labs, Oliver Rajamani, Stephen Kent, and Youngman Grand.” Swerve is becoming one of the cooler places to hang out in South Austin; it’s in a building that was transformed from one of the gnarliest porn shops in Austin to a strip of high style op-artful shops that also includes Indie Pop Gelato and Olive Women’s Fashion. I also dig the 2310 S. Lamar location because I once lived at 2323 S. Lamar, on the northeast corner of Lamar and Bluebonnet, when before that house became the office for a used car lot. (Our favorite incarnation: before 2323 was a used car lot, it was a dentist’s office called The Smile Center.) That whole area has a funky ambience that makes SoCo feel like Highland Mall…

    Is Indie Pop still there? I’ve driven by a few times in the last couple of weeks and noticed the sign had changed. I never made it in there, but always meant to go. If it’s gone, I guess it’s because of people like me.

    Yikes! People like me, too – I haven’t even been down that way in a while. I should do a followup.

    Indie Pop is gone, replaced by a Mexican-food establishment of some sort.
