Mark Proct has seen it all in the Austin music scene. Over the years he’s been a sound man, bus driver, promoter, and band manager, working with the Fabulous Thunderbirds, Jimmie Vaughan, Doyle Bramhall II, and more.
Proct has collected this life into something of an Austin scrapbook called Home Today, Gone Tomorrow, featuring photos and musings. He’ll sign copies of his book tonight at Shady Grove from 6-9 p.m. alongside some of the book’s subjects, including Vallejo, Tommy Shannon, Malford Milligan, more.
Last night, KUTX’s Jody Denberg talked with Proct about the book and his forty years as a part of Austin’s music scene. Take a listen to the full interview below.
