The Antones Austin , which is much near to the Austin Downtown, is a great place
both for the music lovers and the musicians themselves. If you are in Austin and have
not yet visited the place then definitely you are denying yourself a great music venue
with great music. The whole place is steeped in music tradition, reserved for historical
and legendary places like the Bowery Ballroom (NY), The Fillmore (SF), Great
American Music Hall (SF), Preservation Hall (NO), 9:30 Club (DC), The Crocodile
Cafe (Seattle) and well, you may have the idea now! The vibe of the Antone's
nightclub is usually frenzied. Sometimes, it seems like as if the club usually invites
the music bands with a cult following. This in turn creates more excitement and
anticipation among the audience. The stage at the Antone's is well maintained and can
be seen from wherever your position is but only provided that some tall guys do not
block your view. Getting a drink is easy here in comparison of running for the
washroom. The bars are quite big and because of two of them, one can easily have the
choice of going through a wide variety of drinks. The big size bars boost up your
mood of drinking and the lovely music in the air let you float in whatever mood you
are!

One can really experience some wonderful, Austin Live Music here at this place
called Antones Austin. The overall size of the whole venue is really big and
impressive . Besides they have also got some good acoustics. Once you are here, you
may easily say that it is not exactly a typical music venue layout but then also you
will definitely prefer the music set up here. Usually any music band plays in the
center of a big, long room and the stage backs to the wall. On the opposite wall, there
is a sound booth and may be, this can be the reason why the sound is so good there.
The bar, about which we talked earlier, is just next to the soundbooth. Very well care
has been taken for this bar so that it does not cause an intrusive line into the venue or
near the entrance. Generally the crowd at this nightclub is very sensible and mostly
comprises of people who love music. The people, who are a fan of some particular
band, definitely visit the place when that specific band is invited. Apart from such
fans, the crowd also consists of people who may not be the fans for some music group
but of course they are the one who live and breathe music and the one who have got
music in their soul.

Though the drinks are not very special but still the bar seems well stocked and the
price is pretty typical. If you are lucky sometimes then you may get the pleasantly
cheap beers. In the first look the whole layout of the Antones Austin may look long
and skinny to you but once you listen to the show, you will be full of music and sound
which is just fabulous, just fantastic at the nightclub. You can experience some of the
best music quality during the music concerts at Antone's. Once you score a decent
spot, you will be able to enjoy the whole show perfectly. Though finding the same
may be a little difficult for you but then in events like this one, everyone should be
ready to take the pains. The club has got multiple layers of percussion and vocals and
this is something that not all rock clubs or music venues are going to be the most used
to. You may hear all the layers in the lovely wall of sound and can also enjoy the
vocals just right in the mix too. Antone's is generally a pretty nice music venue plus
bar and you may enjoy the music concerts here. The place may look a little conjusted
to the few but if somebody really wanna enjoy some great piece of music then its just
great because some of the best music artists perform here. Antone's is a place where
you may enjoy some quality music along with some cheap drinks.
