A week ago today, OV stood in the effervescent company of local artists and community members at the Mohawk to celebrate the very first “Hi, How Are You?” Day, honoring the birthday of local artist, Daniel Johnston. Most well-known for his famous “Hi, How Are You?” alien-esque graffiti mural, Daniel Johnston is an American singer, songwriter, and artist whose works have been renowned for decades. Kurt Cobain was even amongst the late fan base of Daniel Johnston, mentioning him in several interviews along with wearing a “Hi, How Are You?” t-shirt to the 1992 MTV Music Awards.

Sound on Sound Fest is rolling out some game-changing news. Today, Margin Walker Presents announced that the festival will be held at Sherwood Forest Faire in McDade, Texas just east of Austin on November 4-6, 2016.
