13801 Bee Cave Pkwy.
Just a few songs from downtown Austin,
or so the slogan goes, the Backyard has
been one of the best concert venues in
Austin over the past several years - and
without being in Austin (try Bee Cave).
Though parking on the Backyard's back
40 wilderness is often a nightmare, the
outdoor venue itself is a dream: good
breezes, sightlines, acoustics, and a
magnificent oak tree in the middle of it all.
Owned by Direct Events, the Backyard
consistently gets first-class talent such
as the Gypsy Kings, Allman Brothers, and
hopefully later this spring, Neil Young.
