Best Live Music Venue


It isn't every Live Music Capital of the World that has a venue like Stubb's. A place whose cup runneth over with music history, Stubb's first opened in Lubbock, where the likes of Stevie Ray Vaughan and Joe Ely cut their teeth. Modern-day Stubb's has been transported to Austin and has hosted performances by the Fugees and Russell Crowe. Stubb's has an intimate indoor stage and a full-on stomp-your-feet, raise-your-lighters outdoor stage. If your favorite band is coming to Travis County, you can bet money they're coming to Stubb's. You can also put your money where your mouth is, because Stubb's serves up some mighty fine grub to boot.
