A memorial service for singer-songwriter David Rodriguez, who gained popularity in Austin and throughout Central Texas during the 1980s-1990s, will be held at 2 p.m. on Jan. 1 at the Sahara Lounge in East Austin.

Rodriguez, 63, died on Oct. 26 in the Netherlands, where he lived for more than two decades.

Since his death, several radio stations both in Austin and Holland have dedicated programs in his memory, says his sister and multi-disciplinary artist Leticia Rodriguez. Plans for a tribute concert in his honor are in the works for 2016.
