Ok, So Austin is Music City USA. I buy that. A friendly guitar salesmen at the Austin Guitar Center said Austin has something like 1000 music venues in the metropolitan area. BUT, if you want to see a variety of live music I suggest you leave 6th Street. I went into 6 different clubs and everyone basically had the same 3-4 piece blues band playing 3 chord songs and walking bass lines. Granted not a one of these bar's had a cover charge and beers were $2-3 each so what do you want for free. No disrepect to the bands on 6th street. Bottom line - if you want to hear some live music while visiting austin don't bother with 6th street area unless your tastes are for guitar/bass/drums blues bands. which at times, I like!
