In a desert where parched musicians strive for places to showcase their creativity, Austin Allen built an oasis.

The local entrepreneur opened his second venue, The Lowbrow Palace, to expand upon the space of the now defunct venue Zeppelin’s. The venue stands only a small step away from Allen’s primary bar and venue, The Black Market.

“I feel like it’s something that El Paso needs, local bands don’t really have many places to play and it’s tough for these bands to want to stay in this town and want to keep creating their art because it’s hard to get exposure. “, Allen said. “It’s going to give a lot of local bands a new venue to play at in a pretty centralized and happening area.”.

The Lowbrow Palace, as the name implies, is themed and decorated with the motifs of the Low Brow pop surrealist art movement of the mid 1970s.

“It’s going to open up a lot of different opportunities for bands. I think its going to be one of the coolest, biggest venues available in town.”, said Mic Flo, lyricist for the local hip hop band, the Kilohertz.

Allen said that in helping create a nucleus for music in El Paso, the community is able to offer a place for local and harder-to-reach national touring artists.

“We plan on getting a lot of musicians down here that would normally keep driving through town, bands that are awesome and shouldn’t be driving through. We want to be that venue.”, Allen said.

Although most venues around the university area shy away from underage activity, mostly due to the hassle associated with Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission laws, the venue plans to embrace overage and underage audiences for its shows.

    they book great bands but the sound could be bad at times. i know it also depends on the bands equipment but as a sound engineer you gotta let em know how it sounds out there to make the listeners experience better and worth paying for. its all in the details
