For over two years, Create Culture has been a driving force for progress in the central TX music and art scene. We aim to bring the most exotic sounds in every genre of psychedelic music from all over the Earth and bring it to the live music capitol world, Austin,TX. We are a group of artists and musicians for the people. Born from a collective of painters and visual artists, our roots are on canvas and our community is wide reaching. We host travelling artists, artisan vendors, flow arts performers, visual projection arts and countless other forms of expression; the only limit is what the community brings to the table. We host our monthly event, every first Wednesday of the month at Empire Control Room in Austin. We also have our fingers in many other events in the area and provide stages, art galleries, live painting teams and more for festivals and special events as well as throwing our own festival, CO:Creation, with our partners from 1Stomp!

“We have to create culture, don't watch TV, don't read magazines, don't even listen to NPR. Create your own roadshow. The nexus of space and time where you are now is the most immediate sector of your universe, and if you're worrying about Michael Jackson or Bill Clinton or somebody else, then you are disempowered, you're giving it all away to icons, icons which are maintained by an electronic media so that you want to dress like X or have lips like Y. This is shit-brained, this kind of thinking. That is all cultural diversion, and what is real is you and your friends and your associations, your highs, your orgasms, your hopes, your plans, your fears. And we are told 'no', we're unimportant, we're peripheral. 'Get a degree, get a job, get a this, get a that.' And then you're a player, you don't want to even play in that game. You want to reclaim your mind and get it out of the hands of the cultural engineers who want to turn you into a half-baked moron consuming all this trash that's being manufactured out of the bones of a dying world.�
