And of course beer!
We are going to see Monte Montgomery at the One World Theatre, but for the rest of the time, we want our hotel to be in walking distance to some of the aforementioned types of music venues.
Really though taking a trip with a few buddies away from the family just to party and enjoy music is gonna be a win anyway!
6th st. is the college party type stuff mostly. Red River betwern 6th and 9th has turned into a pretty cool little metal/punk scene. Other varieties of music around there too, not just strictly metal. Also check out who's playing at Antones and Stubbs BBQ that week, both walking distance. 6th st. east of I-35 is turning into a sort of hip little scene too, also walking distance.
Also check who's playing the Continental Club on S. congress, walking distance over the bridge. The Saxon Pub and the Broken Spoke on S. Lamar will be cab ride distance though not too far/expensive.
