Welcome to the Live Music Capital of the World. There are over 120 music venues within a block of each other. It can get extremely overwhelming if you don’t have a strategy to conquer the madness. When I first moved to Austin, someone once told me “Walk down Sixth street and follow your ears. When you hear something good… go inside.” It’s a wonderful system to make it all make sense.
At the top notch Billboard showcase Dinosaur Bones capitalized on the amazing location of the stage facing Sixth street and actually drew a sizable crowd into the venue from off of the street. Within ten minutes, the tent was buzzing with a feeding frenzy of music-industry-types. The band has an uncanny way of making an organic transition from hook-filled rock to beautiful ambiance all in the same breath. No one left unimpressed.
