Bass Concert Hall
2350 Robert Dedman, 512/471-2787
Located on the UT campus, Bass Concert Hall boasts some of the best acoustics in Austin. Opened in 1981, the grand and stately room remains a key local venue not only for classical ensembles like the Kronos Quartet and jazz legends including Sonny Rollins, but regularly hosts pop and rock stalwarts ranging from Duran Duran to Los Lobos. Broadway shows? Check. And where else could Philip Glass bring his genre-defying musical adaptation of Leonard Cohen’s poetry? The theatre holds 2,900 people on three levels.
