Where To Go For The Best Live Music In Austin Texas
Live music and Austin Texas go hand in hand because everyone knows that the ATX area has some of the best live music in the United States including festivals like South by Southwest but what about the smaller music venues?
In this article we will share with you some of the smaller music venues that you should consider for listening to live music in the Austin Texas area.
Don’t Miss These Live Music Venues In Austin
The Broken Spoke
With such a wealth of opportunity—and with everyone bringing their own musical interests and obsessions to the table—we don’t generally like to call any venue “mandatory.” We make an exception, though, for the 55-year-old Broken Spoke, one of the last true Texas dancehalls. Have a quick peek at the dusty, ramshackle in-house museum—and then get yourself and your boots to the dancefloor. (Don’t know how to to do the Texas two-step? They offer nightly lessons.)
The Continental Club
After a wild history as everything from a supper club to a burlesque palace, the Continental–arguably the sine qua non of medium-sized Austin music clubs—settled into its legendary existence as the amped-up home of everyone from Social Distortion and the Replacements to local and regional talents ranging from Joe Ely to James McMurtry. Count yourself lucky if alt-country hellion Dale Watson is in residence on the club’s red velvet-curtained stage.
C-Boy’s Heart & Soul
This relatively new club is housed in the former space of Trophy’s bar, and aside from the juke-joint vibe and spacious stage downstairs hosting contemporary, often-raucous soul and R&B acts, it features a stylish and evocative upstairs lounge, the Jade Room, modeled after 1950s-era Japanese GI bars.
Devil’s Backbone Tavern
Had enough of Austin’s cosmic countrypolitan scene? Hop in your car and head 37 miles southwest to this circa 1937 roadhouse owned by singer-songwriter Robyn Ludwick and her musician husband John, aka “Lunch Meat.” What you’ll find—aside from a killer jukebox, the oldest shuffleboard in Texas, and plenty of cold beer—is the best old-time honky-tonk in Texas (and thus, by extension, the world). Go any time for the (supposedly haunted) vibes and the epic view of the surrounding Hill Country—or, better yet, time your trip for a concert in the attached restored performance hall, where both imported talent and the local music gentry take the stage regularly.
