Loud Music Capital of the World

by soultrainwill

Austin’s official motto is the “Live Music Capital of the World” because on any given night, you can find over one hundred venues showcasing a wide variety of affordable – or free – live music performances. Apparently back in 1991 the slogan became official. Though, it can be argued that Austin’s reputation for live music really began in the early 70’s when Willie Nelson moved to Austin, Eddie Wilson opened the Armadillo World Headquarters… in fact the list goes on and on when it comes to legendary local musicians and historically relevant happenings that set Austin on this path. There are, however, interests encroaching the city and making waves that directly effect the future of Austin’s ability to sustain it’s creative reputation. Take note.
