After more than 20 years of life, the Cathedral of Junk is not up to code. Wonder what cranky neighbor or busy body came after this “Keep Austin Weird” artistic landmark. Maybe a fat cat has an original condo idea for this fella’s backyard?
While I believe there is a solution being worked on right now to Save the Cathedral, it’s ridiculous for a city that boasts “Live Music Capital of the World” and “Keep Austin Weird” to be so reckless with it’s creative types. I don’t recall anyone building a musicians/bartender/sound guy condo downtown so the people who make their money on 6th st or Red River could walk to work. I haven’t forgotten about the Intel building despite it’s recent strickening from the Austin skyline. The artists even converted that eye soar into a work of beauty with aerial performance.
Okay…I’m stepping off my soapbox and want to show the Celesta Danger photos of the Hell Marys at the Cathedral of Junk which won an Austin Chronicle 2006 Best of Austin Award and has 4.5 stars out of 5 stars on Yelp. There are more photos but these are just some random ones I found. LEAVE the Cathedral alone! Geezzz! Please post a comment if you have any useful links.
