Staryn Wagner and Dave Hermann
Two of three owner/operators of The Cavity, an all-ages BYOB dive located at 615 Red River that immediately became the epicenter of Austin’s underground music scene when it opened by Wagner, Hermann and Squat Thrust guitarist Jimmy Bradshaw in the Fall of 1991. Wagner and Hermann lived in the club for much of its two-year tenure. Despite its shoestring pedigree, the Cavity hosted roadshows by Bikini Kill, Green Day, Pavement, and, most notably, G.G. Allin. Hermann died in 2015.
