Tex Pop San Antonio

Tex Pop is an IRS recognized 501c3 non-profit organization whose mission is to “Collect, Document, Exhibit, Preserve, Interpret, and Celebrate South Texas Music and Music-Related Art and History.”

Tex Pop is a registered trademark of Texas Popular Music Museum and Michael Ann Coker.

Tex Pop is San Antonio’s Music Museum for local music – all genres. We are an archive, an art gallery, and a performance venue. The Tex Pop vision is to be the premier source of South Texas music history providing artifacts, information, and analysis of music’s impact on popular culture. In addition to rotating exhibits on a variety of music-related themes, Tex Pop regularly schedules one-day events such as speakers, discussion panels, and documentary screenings as well as music performances – by deejays spinning vinyl and musicians playing live.

Tex Pop was formerly known as South Texas Popular Culture Center. We operated for many years off Broadway in San Antonio but we are now located at 6336 Montgomery Road. Call 210-792-1312 to arrange a visit to the Corn Pound. Jeff Smith is the owner of the complex which includes a record store, recording studio, music rehearsal space, and a video store as well as Tex Pop office and gallery.
