“Feed Your Head,” The Rag Blog's “Old Skool” April Fool's benefit bash, held on Sunday night, April 1, at Jovita’s in Austin, was a rousing success. Featuring memorable performances by historic Texas musicians Shiva’s Headband, Greezy Wheels, and Jesse Sublett -- and with legendary surrealist graphic artist Jim Franklin signing his commemorative poster -- the show drew a packed crowd of nostalgic revelers who came out to support The Rag Blog and Rag Radio and to just plain have fun.
