Janis & Stevie Ray Share Austin Honor

<!-- a:visited { color: #B6B03C } -->  The Austin Music Memorial has only been around a couple of years.  So the fact Stevie Ray Vaughan and Janis Joplin are just getting honored posthumously in 2010 is not a mark against one of the most musically hip places on the planet - even if we think they should have been in the inaugural group.  Thursday (12/17), the Austin City Council voted thumbs up on the two Texas legends, inducting them with 8 others, including Townes Van Zandt.  Engraved discs for each inductee are displayed on City Terrace at the Long Center for the Arts.  The official ceremony takes place Mar. 28.
