Every bar, club, coffee shop, barber shop, fitness center, ally way and street corner has a band playing their hearts out for the crowd. And the crowd wants as much as it can get. With a $600 price tag to attend this, they might be getting their money’s worth.
It also doesn’t matter what kind of music you’re into. South By covers the gambit. I saw a New Orlean’s type folk band, Sgt Dunbar & the Hobo Banned, at a burlesque house.
But just walking around the street (without using my press pass) I could see a ton of great acts. Elevated outdoor stages and incredibly loud PA systems give you a street seat for free. I wish I grew up in this town.
