    I'm stoked to go to Austin for the first time on Sunday. Does anybody from tdp play locally there?

    I'd also like to hear any opinions on best places to see shows. Blues, rock, jazz, almost anything... I know I'll be in Texas, but country is not my favorite.

    Thanks in advance!

    Go to the elephant room for jazz. I used to go see ephraim Owens (trumpet player for Erika Badu/Tedeschi Trucks band) for free there.
    Antone's is a world famous blues bar in Austin. That is where SRV used to hang out, and where Gary Clark jr got his start.
    For TDPRI members your best bet is to go to the Continental Club. They have two rooms; one of which does mostly local non country acts.
    I would also recommend venturing down to Gruene Hall in New Braunsfels if you have the time. Lots of history there, and lots of free music on the weekends.

    Awesome! Thanks for the advice. I'm definitely headed to the elephant room and Antone's.

    The Saxon Pub is another great venue, it features 3 acts every evening.
    I play in Austin all the time.
    How long will you be in Austin?
    If you are here Sunday, you can catch Heybale at the Continental Club at 9PM.
    Great band featuring Redd Volkaert, Earl Pool Ball and Dallas Wayne.
