Music-aholic visiting Austin on a Thursday/Friday? What to do?

by Meatskin_Sal

Hi. I will be on a business trip to San Antonio next week and wanted to visit Austin on Thursday/Friday.

I'm a music fanatic and just couldn't pass up the chance to see this beautiful city I have heard so much about.

Question: What is 6th street like on a Thursday night? Will it be tame? Do most of the bars and shows have high cover charges?

Question: Suggestions for Friday afternoon / evening? I am mostly interested in seeing the 'real' Austin and finding the roots to the great music I've heard.

Question: Cheaper hotel suggestion close to the action. (I found an earlier post recommending Austin Motel)

I'll be alone, so it may be pretty interesting to see where I end up and what trouble I can get into.

Thank you for your help!

Best,

S

Howdy,

You can find some action on 6th st. on Thursday, but not near what it's like on Friday and Saturday.

Cover charges usually aren't that bad, and some places don't have a cover charge at all. Only places with live music have a cover charge and it's rare to have to pay more than $5.00, except during SXSW.

In the afternoon there's not a lot of live music. Most bars on 6th st. don't even open until after 6:00PM. You can check out the XL section in Thursdays Austin American-Statesman for bands and showtimes, along with descriptions of the various bars and clubs around town. Also, thwe Austin Chronicle has a lot of info on music and bars.

Being in town for such a short time I would recommend you check out 6th st., the 4th st. warehouse district, and south Congress Ave. South congress is the "real Austin" I think your looking for.

Have a great time in our wonderful city.

Marc, thanks so much for the tips!!!

I will definitely check out the areas you recommended.

I do have a Friday night stay, and plan to make the most of it.

I have a feeling that much of my Thursday and Friday afternoons will be spent hunting the guitar stores and sampling the Austin cuisine!

Best,
Sal

Definitely check out an issue of The Chronicle, or go to the website (http://www.austinchronicle.com) to see what's going on around town. There's always some sort of music going on somewhere. It's just a shame that it's currently freezing cold and the city is pretty much shut down due to ice/snow. It'll probably get better by the time you're here. As for cover charges, it depends. It's my experience that many 6th Street bars don't charge cover, but I've been to places that charge up to $15. However, those were excellent shows and probably worth $15.

Travel Tips for Austin

Go to Mount Bonnell and view...

by Lori_K

Go to Mount Bonnell and view the Colorado River (called Lake Austin at this particular point) from atop a cliff. Take a blanket and some refreshments and watch the sunset. It's great! Also, for another fantastic view, go to the Oasis restaurant/bar overlooking Lake Travis. If you are into live music, strange people watching, tattoo/piercing parlors, and dance clubs, don't miss 6th street. There are so many things to do here that I can't do it justice.. you just gotta come and figure out what you want when you get here. COLLEGE!!! What else can I say. An awesome place to grow up away from home and parents. The University of Texas is a top-notch university with world class instructors and... a world class party attitude to boot. Nothing like getting a fine education and having a great time in the process. Attend a UT football game if you get a chance!

Good food and spirits

by kd_baby

Aside from Restaurant Row up in Addison, Austin is also a mecca of sorts when it comes to dining. Although the dining experience is nowhere near a concentrated as RR, it's still worth the experience.

Waterfall in Texas?

by StrayKat

Hamilton Pools! This is the place to enjoy a nice waterfall out in seclusion. It's a great day getaway.

Tip: Call in advance to make sure the area is not closed due to heavy rains from the days before or any other reasons.

(Located on Hamilton Pool Road, this 232-acre preserve is good for hiking, picnicking, and of course swimming.)

Monument to the Confederate Dead

by ATXtraveler

One of the long standing arguments in American Political History is the question of what the Civil War was actually fought for. Many historians argue it was for the abolishment of slavery, but every Southerner grows up knowing it was for States Rights. Austin during the Civil War, flew under the flag of the confederacy, and so included in our history are many instances of the Confederate States, including this tribute to the people who died fighting to protect their states rights.

Bob Populars, on 6th street is the place to be on thursdays, 5 dollar cover and 1 dollar drinks all night, any drink.

Poly Esther's a few blocks from 6th street is a place for those that do not want to hang out with the younger crowd it's twenty one and over
