Austin IS Weird

Austin’s unofficial slogan, “Keep Austin Weird,” was coined by Red Wassenich’s, a now well-known Austinite and Librarian at Austin Community College. First uttered on a local radio station in 2000, it became a battle cry for old-timers and others who wanted to keep Austin’s uniqueness. Slapped onto bumper stickers and T-shirts almost instantaneously, the slogan spread in support of local businesses and the city’s fierce individuality against “corporate America”.

Austin Escapades

Austin may be dubbed the Live Music Capital of the World, but that’s just the beginning. Austin is also home to world-class museums, beautiful outdoor spaces and unique attractions.

Austin IS Music

No matter where you roam throughout Austin, you’ll find yourself entertained by live music. Don’t be surprised if you immediately hear live music as you deplane at Austin’s airport, because music takes many forms in Austin and the airport entertainment is just the beginning.

Musicians can be seen playing everywhere, from non-traditional locations like grocery stores and city council meetings, to more traditional settings like outdoor festivals such as Blues on the Green or Austin City and South by Southwest. There’s also Urban Music Festival, Old Settler’s Music Fest, the Pecan Street Festival and so many more. But, most of the time, you’ll find great musicians playing at clubs, coffeehouses, taquerias, auditoriums and concert halls.
