Swan Dive

615 Red River
As much a dive bar (hence the name) as a concert venue, Swan Dive attracts quality local talent for its roomy inside and outside stages. Not just bands, either: dance parties, burlesque, and its own self-proclaimed “hipster karaoke.” Outside of ample Free Week action, release shows from Austin indie’s finest, and ample homegrown bills throughout the month, the Dive also features a drink menu heavy on vintage cocktails and actual booths to sit and sip them in. At a 250 load, any occasion is an intimate one.

Shrek Fest 2024

Do you yearn to be left alone in your swamp? Are you layered like an onion? Then join in a celebration for everyone’s favorite green creature, and I’m not talking Kermit here. He’s an ogre, he’s an All-Star, he’s Shrek. Celebrate this not-so-jolly green giant on the 18th anniversary of Shrek 2’s release with a fairy-tale party courtesy of Swan Dive. Rock out with Grandma Mousey, Allepakcok, and Shrek cover-band THE EDDIE MURPHY EXPERIENCE. Be there or be a silly donkey. – Cat McCarrey Sat., May 18.
