The only complaint you hear is the traffic, it’s really, really bad…, and you have to fight to get a parking space. Though everyone knows light rail is the solution, there is only one newly built city light rail line.

Live music, and music in many other forms, is everywhere in Austin. There are more than 250 live music venues that feature everything from rock and blues to country and jazz every night of the week.

This group was performing outside of the Whole Food store, they were surprisingly good!
