Austin, Texas live music is known around the world. We're not called the Live Music Capital of World for nothing! Check out great live music in Austin, Texas every night of the week!

Austin’s favorite soul band is having a special show this Saturday at The Scoot Inn with Digital Wild . If you’ve ever seen The NIGHTOWLS play you know it’s going to be one heck of a dance party! They always rock the house with those old time favorites that you can’t seem to get enough of. There’s no doubt you’ll leave craving more tunes and researching when you can see them again!


Get your tickets HERE!

Admission: presale $10, door $15

When: Saturday, July 25th

Time: Doors 9 pm , Show 9:30 pm

There’s no replacement for seeing them live but this may get you excited for the fun!

Blues on the Green is Austin’s longest running FREE music series. Blues on the Green veterans know the drill, but for first time attendees here is the rundown: You can bring in two factory sealed water bottles, blankets, chairs and your dog (must be on a leash at all times). The number one piece of advice I would say, is ride your bike /carpool, uber, lyft, take the bus or walk if you can. Parking and traffic around Zilker tonight can cause quite the headache.

If you’re new to Austin, definitely plan to go at least once this summer. It really is a rite of passage for living in this great city.

Blues on the Green lovers  — Text “Blues” to 29217 to join the Blues on the Green alert club and get access to exclusive information and contests.

2015 Line-Up:
July 22 – Walker Lukens, Bob Schneider

A concert of some of Austin’s finest musicians benefitting HAAM and future nonprofit ALL ATX Music Factory at ACL Live, to air on KLRU-TV, Austin PBS. As well as the annual “Austin Music Legend Auction” with all proceeds benefiting HAAM.

And many more!

In 1966, the Austin American-Statesman first coined the term “psychedelic rock” in an article covering the sound waves generated by Austin’s own The 13th Floor Elevators—giving an official name to a style that has since threaded its influence over generations of Austin rockers.

In recognition of their psychedelic roots, ALL ATX is proud to bring together some of this city’s finest musicians, including The Black Angels, Ian Moore and Gina Chavez on stage with special guest Todd Rundgren, in support of our local music scene.

Proceeds from this event, which will be taped by KLRU for national distribution later this fall, will go to HAAM as well as the future nonprofit ALL ATX Music Factory.

The mission of Health Alliance for Austin Musicians (HAAM) is to provide access to affordable health care for Austin’s low income, uninsured working musicians, with a focus on prevention and wellness.
