SCENE | Raul's Nightclub, Austin, TX.

Photos of a punk fan by Ben DeSoto in 1980 via Austin Punk

Raul's Nightclub was known for being the epicenter of the Texan punk scene in the late 1970s and early 1980s. While the venue was short-lived, it seemed to have its share of moments including appearances by Patti Smith, Devo, and Elvis Costello. The girl in the photos kept coming up as I was researching Raul's; although I wasn't able to I.D. her beyond a "punk fan", she definitely looks like the real deal. Makes me want to cut up some more hero shirts.

Her name maybe be Patti and if so she was from Canada, according to my brother Ty Gavin. He played there often.
