It’s no secret that Austin is the Live Music Capital of the World.
Since 1991 it was established that Austin, Texas has more music venues per capita than anywhere else in the nation. Even more music-themed events are held here including South by Southwest, Austin City Limits Music Festival, Fun Fun Fun Fest and Psych Fest, to name a few.
Needless to say, this town loves its music.
So many audiophiles live in and around Austin that even the vinyl resurgence has made an appearance here. To see the evidence, look squarely at the numerous up-and-coming record shops that have made Austin home. Just when it seemed like analog music was going to disappear forever in the wake of digital technology, a community of collectors and records sellers sprang up to the vinyl challenge.
