Austin Live Music Crawl

Open uri20170420 12214 rgd41q

Why We Love This

  • See iconic venues and new clubs on the scene
  • Tour led by a local musician
  • Get out of downtown and into the real Austin

Austin has over 270 live music venues, many of which are outside of downtown and tucked into neighborhoods. Skip cover bands and jam out to authentic music with us all over the city. Three hours, 2-3 shows, and still home by 10 or 11 pm! This tour rocks! All participants must be 21 years of age or older. Tour departs from Starbucks at 500 E 4th St attached to the Hilton Hotel.

What You'll Do

Austin is the self-proclaimed “Live Music Capital of the World” and our crawl proves that the hype is more than justified. With over 270 venues spread around the city, the options are mind-boggling. We work with all the best and most iconic venues to come up with a schedule for each crawl that shows you different areas of town, highlights a variety of venues, and gives you a wide array of music on each tour. We focus mostly on blues, rock, country, zydeco, rockabilly, singer-songwriter and jazz (and sorry, no rap or heavy metal). In between venues, you’ll learn a bit about how the music scene got started and who they key players are. This detour simply rocks!

"Wishing for longer stay"

December 15, 2018 - 

Steve was a wonderful host. Just wish we could have spent more time at the locations. Maybe only 2 stops for a longer time perhaps?


"Tremendous"

Sonny was a wonderful tour guide. We not only got a lot of Austin music history we also learned some general Austin history as well. The one disappointment was at our 2nd venue. It happened to be the musicians birthday and all we got to hear was other artists performing his music. We would book a tour with you again and request Sonny as our guide. Thanks, Andrea Athanas


"Music Crawl - Lots of fun"

October 22, 2018 - 

Steve was our host. We had a small group of 5 which was just perfect for the music crawl. It was great going to venues that I normally wouldn't have known about. The first place was jazz and featured a young female singer. The second was a real cowboy place with a super band and lots of people dancing country style. It was so fun to watch them. The third place was a blues club that was really neat. I was apprehensive about doing this tour but was pleasantly surprised at how fun it was. I recommend this tour if you visit Austin.
