Join us Saturday, March 18th at 7 pm for the 2nd Annual Sober X SouthEast, a live music and art event featuring artists from the recovery community near and far. This event benefits the support and sustainability of the Graffiti Lounge @ The Station, Austin's first recovery lounge!

We will have live music all evening, including half a dozen bands and musicians playing on our indoor and outdoor stages, and a live art contest!!

This event is brought to you by RecoveryATX & Atomic Souls Counseling, with support from the amazing Cryptic Creative (Kyle Duce), curating the live muralist competition outside, Sansbar, serving signature mocktails all night inside, Nunchux, serving up unique craft eggrolls in our backyard, and East Koast Ices bringing tasty New York Italian Ices to cool off. It will benefit the continued success of Austin’s newest and best recovery hangout: The Graffiti Lounge!

The Graffiti Lounge is a collaborative co-working space, resource drop-in center, and recovery music lounge located on the corner of 12th & Chicon - featuring an interactive bar that anyone & everyone can paint, draw, or tag!

In our backyard, our main stage will feature full band live sets playing all evening. Alongside the musical artists, you will get to experience an up close and personal performance of live muralists battling it out for a chance to win a 1st place cash prize. Their art will be auctioned at the end of the night for a chance to take home something special. Last year we had some seriously talented nationally touring musicians and muralists, and everyone left ready for more!
At the Graffiti Lounge, our intimate stage will hold space for some solo and acoustic acts. We will also have an opportunity for attendees to tag our bar with paint pens provided for all who want to leave their mark, just like last year. Our good friends at Sansbar will be running our indoor lounge bar providing their newsworthy mocktails and nonalcoholic beverages all evening with an extensive menu of delicious options
We have been communicating with local food and dessert vendors to provide options for those looking for something to fill their appetite without having to venture out into the busy SX traffic for food and miss any of these amazing acts and we found some great vendors to meet everyone's needs!

Aside from our normal bottle waters, canned energy drinks and sodas, this year we will have more non-alcoholic drink options and the food below:

Sansbar (Austin) - @sans_bar
Nunchux (San Antonio) - @nunchuxog
East Koast Ices (Austin) - @eastkoastices

Stay tuned to our social media pages (RecoveryATX and Atomic Souls) for some incredible announcements for some amazing giveaways for free food and drinks brought to you by a couple of our sponsors!

Also, for those of you who came last year, you probably noticed the theme and colors for the live mural competition. This year, we have a fresh new theme and color palette plus larger canvases that our artists will be using.

AND....we are holding a competition for a guest slot to join in to compete for the cash prize! Stay tuned to our social media pages (RecoveryATX and Atomic Souls) for more details on how to enter!

We will also have some announcements coming from our social media pages (RecoveryATX and Atomic Souls) about a chance for some free tickets provided by a community partner in the recovery community!
