In June, beloved campus dive bar the Hole in the Wall celebrates 40 years in existence with a 10-day bash featuring a formidable roster of bands who have played the bar over the years. The parties kick off on Thursday, June 19 and conclude on Saturday, June 28. The massive lineup includes everyone from classic Austin acts like Mojo Nixon and the Toadliquors, Fastball and Jon Dee Graham to current faves like the Riverboat Gamblers and Black Joe Lewis. It proves that virtually every competent guitar-slung tunesmith in Austin has at some point in their career taken the stage at the Hole.

In addition to music the club is planning to release a special limited edition t-shirt and a limited edition beer from (512) Brewing Company to celebrate the occasion. More information.
