Austin Concerts and Music Scene

[]

LIVE MUSIC IS IN OUR ROOTS

Contributed by John Morthland

First-time visitors might be surprised to find themselves being entertained with live music as they walk through the terminal at Austin’s airport after deplaning. But they shouldn’t be. Live music, and music in many other forms, is everywhere in Austin. Musicians play in everything from grocery stores (Central MarketWhole Foods) to city council meetings. They play outdoors at the Blues on the Green series and at festivals: Austin City Limits and South by Southwest you’ve likely heard of, but there’s also Urban Music Festival, Old Settler’s Music Fest, the Pecan Street Festival and many more worth checking out. Mostly, you’ll find Austin musicians at clubs, coffeehouses, bars, taquerias, auditoriums and concert halls – and with more than 250 live music venues, it can be intimidating knowing where to start. Find out more about the quintessential Austin music experiences.
