    Austin: It is a part of the boozy fabric of old Austin where young lovers and old timers come to dance the Texas two-step to the best live country, folk and Americana in Austin. - IFC Staff

    No matter who's playing -- though Alejandro Escovedo's traditional Sunday night gig is preferable -- you gotta pay respects to this classic honky tonk heavy-drinkin'/rockin' establishment.

    The Granddaddy of all local music venues, the Continental Club has enjoyed a coast-to-coast reputation as the premiere club for live music in Austin since 1957.

    This Austin establishment is sure to have some great shows at its two stages during SXSW. Come to to see what's going on here!

    As Austin as bongs and ping pong, the Continental Club is a haven for bikers, hot mamas, New Age greasers, and tourists alike, hosting local rip-roarers and touring roots-rockers.

    Choosing to shoot pool during a band's set will still keep you within earshot of the sweet music. For a sweet dessert afterward, dip by Amy's Ice Cream for... well, ice cream.

    If you’re into live music, you’ve got to hit up The Continental Club, self-professed granddaddy of all local venues, which has been rocking socks off since 1957. – Jason, our Homesick Austinite

    The best place to catch some live music on South Congress.

    Johnny Cash lookalikes on stage, 75 year-old Texans straight from a Cohen Brothers movies, and 25 y.o. local girls dressed like it's 1924. Best Texan flavor you can get in Austin!

    This place was well worth visit. Great music, and atmosphere. I'd highly encourage anyone to stop in and have drink or two while listening to some great live music. Staff quite friendly, too.

    If you lack dreads and gauges and all things "weird" then you should leave immediately. You'll get "shushed" and ostracized. Not worth it. Plus the beer selection is hipster and lame.

    Gotta catch James McMurtry and Jon Dee Graham Weds night. Best Dan show EVER. They make everyone else look like amateurs (no offense intended.)

    This is a great place to watch live music, but even better in the front room. This club also gets non-mainstream artists. Recently it hosted the composer of the School House Rock music.

    Great variety of beers at affordable prices.

    Saw the Hay Bales. Music was good but an announcement from the lead singer that only mixed couples were welcome to dance was extremely disappointing.

    We just tried to see the Junior Brown 7:30 show with the kids. No go under 21. We should have known.

    This place used to be a toxic smoke-filled ashtray with great music. Now it still has legendary Austin music -minus the secondhand smoke.

    Hankerin' for some celeb-spotting? Continental Club boasts them almost every weekend, along with some of the best live music and happy hours in Austin.

    This is where we go to see a great rockabilly show. Don’t be surprised if the staff, patrons, and vintage cars outside match the aesthetic. We recommend bringing cash since they usually charge cover. Read more
