With a name like Kick Butt, you’d think the atmosphere in this coffeehouse would lean toward assertive—-or at least jittery. “Kick back” is far more descriptive. Unpretentious and un-corporate, Kick Butt Coffee Music & Booze is the creation of Austin’s renowned Tai Chi and Kung Fu master, Thomas Gohring. Here you’re just as likely to bump into artists, musicians and poets as you are entrepreneurs, office workers and bean counters. The art of latte-making has been mastered.
The Austin Creative Alliance is funded in part by the City of Austin through the Economic Development Department's Cultural Arts Division and by grants from Texas Commission on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts which believes that a great nation deserves great art. The Creative Alliance also receives generous in-kind support from CreateAustin, and Time Warner Cable News. We are also grateful for the ongoing support and participation of our members and patrons.
