Music And Culture Of Austin

Music And Culture Of Austin

Austin is a very unique city that separates itself not only from the other cities in the state of Texas, but from capital cities around the world. The abundance of music is one aspect, among many others, of Austin culture that is unique. This said, I went on a five day music binge to observe the different types of people who participate in this important part of life in the city and why they do so. From March 21st through March 25th I went to five shows, one each night, to listen to the music and observe and interact with the audience, and when it was possible, the performers themselves. The performances I went to were by four musicians who live in Austin, and one by a touring artist, each at a different venue. The length of the performances were about two and a half hours long each and took place from 11 p.m. to 2 a.m. with a break in between sets. I personally picked what shows to go see based on what artists I believe best represent the Austin music scene. The five performances I chose were: John Abercrombie
