The Briscoe Center for American History and KLRU host a screening of the award-winning documentary "For the Sake of the Song," which tells the story of Houston music venue Anderson Fair, which has cultivated some of America's most notable songwriters - including Lyle Lovett, Townes Van Zandt and Lucinda Williams. Screening followed by performances from musicians featured in the film.
Now in its sixth decade, Anderson Fair is one of the oldest folk and acoustic music venues still open in the United States. The film maps out how a devoted family of volunteers, patrons and artists transformed a subversive coffeehouse into a unique music institution.
