515 E. Sixth, 494-9336
Once upon a time, Liberty Lunch was the Bob Marley of local reggae venues, and while said venue still hosts the occasional big rasta show, Flamingo Cantina has become home to the best in local herbalisms as well as world-class roadshows such as Boukmans Eksperyans, Kreyol Syndikat, Eek-A-Mouse, and even Lee "Scratch" Perry. Better still, the Sixth Street outpost of live, local, original music also nutures Austin's punk bands, hosting multi-act bills as good as any in town. An ear-shattering sound system, plenty of seats, and a good vibe, Flamingo Cantina is one of the best live music venues in Austin.
