My absolute favorite place to hang out in Austin—with or without live music
is the Continental Club. On a beautiful stretch of South Congress Avenue. It's authentic and it's World Famous.

Today, though, it's a crowd in constant motion because today is smack-dab in the vortex of the multi-media cyclone called South By Southwest. Too many bands to count. Too many crowds to navigate. So much chaos. So much delicious attention pinpointed on Austin, again. Good: Austin is authentically cool. And the Continental Club is the coolest club in Austin.

So, quick, before the next band sets up, hit me with another shot of Jack. And then call me after everyone has left town.
