Closing Reception & Manny Castillo Tribute Concert
In celebration of the Life and Legacy of Manuel Diosdado Castillo Jr., and with the blessing of the Castillo family, Presa House invites everyone to the closing reception of “Remember Me.” The exhibition features the work of Manny Castillo’s close friends, colleague’s and former San Anto Cultural arts students and muralists. The Closing Reception will be held Saturday, January 26 from noon to 5PM and features a live performance by Manny’s close friends and bandmates Chris & Scott Lutz and their band Snowbyrd.
Castillo met (Chris) Lutz and his multi-instrumentalist brother Scott in the early ’90s at SA’s legendary punk-rock haven Taco Land, at a time when Castillo was drumming for El Santo and the Lutzes were playing with The Dropouts, a band which they formed, and from which they subsequently faced the indignity of being fired. Over the years, Castillo and Chris Lutz forged a bond built on competitive one-upsmanship. – saustex.com
