Honkey Tonk Woman: The Austin Spotify Mix

After listening to (and thoroughly enjoying) last week’s LA-themed playlist, I couldn’t resist making a version for Austin – the live music capital of the world.  Music is one of the things that pulled me towards this city, and has been one of my favorite things about living here. This is a town that truly does revolve around music, with each day presenting a new lineup of shows to choose from. Nights involve hopping from show to show, rather than bar to bar (but pretty much every bar is a venue anyway). I’m slowly learning the ropes, figuring out which favorites to dance to at White Horse, or which local legends to catch at Continental Club. It’s unlike any music scene I’ve experienced in any other city.

A little bit honky tonk, a little bit soul, a little bit good old southern rock… it’s dusty boots and two-stepping, twirling around the dance floor with gentlemanly cowboys… it’s banjo plucking and guitar shredding… it’s everything I dreamed it would be and then some. Get a taste of the music that keeps Austin on its toes in the playlist below!

Awesome choices! Music is the number 1 reason I want to move to Austin. I mean, everyone plays in Austin at one point or another!

Janis, Stones, SPOON! Love your choices! Making a playlist is such a fabulous little series – can’t wait to see where a playlist ends up next xo

Warm Regards,
