For those seeking more options for things to do in Austin, we recommend the following websites:
www.do512.com – By far the easiest to navigate and search and they give away plenty of tickets to shows every week.
www.c3concerts.com/ – Another easy-to-use site provided by the same folks that produce the ACL Music Festival every year.
www.austinchronicle.com – Less user-friendly, but a wide variety of events, activities, and stories about the Austin music scene.
www.austin360.com – Provided by the Austin American-Statesman newspaper. Again, not the most user-friendly, but filled with great ideas every week.
