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!

Summer is officially coming to an end. Blues on the Green is done for the season and tonight is the last Do512 Sound & Cinema of the season. Trailer food, live music, and a movie make the perfect trifecta so I’m sad to see this one go.

Tonight is the LAST Blues On The Green of the summer. That means summer is officially starting to wind down.

Blues on the Green is a classic Austin summer experience. There’s nothing quite like taking in the sunset and hearing some live music at Zilker Park with downtown as a backdrop. It’s pretty incredible.

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 you bike /carpool or walk if you can. Parking and traffic around Zilker tonight can cause quite the headache.

They’ll have plenty of food vendors set up in case you’re hungry including Freebirds, How Do You Roll, Daily Juice, Southside Flying Pizza, Lambert’s FoodaPalooza, Heros Gyros, Bananarchy, Henri’s, and Amy’s Ice Cream.

If you’re new to Austin, go. It really is a rite of passage for living in this great city.

This is a great time to come check out the Bob Bullock Museum as the museum will be open and free during the concert. Don’t forget to grab your blankets, chairs and bug spray as you come enjoy the free show under the star at the Bob Bullock Museum.

It really is a treat to hear some fantastic music and explore the wonders of the Texas History Museum.

Last night’s Blue on the Green getting postponed was a total bummer, luckily it’s Austin so there is always today’s a new day with another live music option. I personally love Unplugged, as you get to enjoy live music but with a smaller crowd than Blues on the Green.

This weekly free music series under the canopy of trees at Shady Grove has become a staple of Austin summers, and it’s the perfect way to spend an evening.

As always, these shows are free, they have $3.50 Ziegenbock drafts, good food, and great music!

Here’s a complete line-up of this season’s Unplugged at the Grove: http://365thingsaustin.com/2014/04/01/unplugged-grove-line-2014/.

For more information follow the Unplugged at the Grove Facebook page or text “grove” to 29217 to join the Unplugged at the Grove Alerts Club.

Admission: Free

When: Tonight (and Thursdays through Sept. 18th)

Time: 8pm
