By 1981 Threadgill’s was facing the wrecking ball until Eddie Wilson bought it. After the Armadillo World Headquarters closed on New Years Eve 1980, Eddie Wilson opened Threadgill’s on New Year’s Eve 1981 & has been serving Southern comfort food & live music 365 days a year until closing recently, ending 87 years worth of music history.
