It is no wonder that we are the live music capital of the world; here we are with another summer free concert series bringing us another thing to love about Austin. Tonight we will be kicking of the 20th season of Blues on the Green; one of Austin’s longest running free music series.
Come out for a night of great music and plenty of food from a lot of your favorite local vendors including Amy’s Ice Cream, Freebird’s, Stubb’s BBQ, Good Pop, Salt Lick and many more. This is another classic Austin event, almost as classic at the Bat’s, County Line BBQ, The Texas Tower or First Thursday. So, bring out your family and friends to make an evening of it all.
