Top 10 (and then some) myths about the Austin music scene

  1. That it's expensive.
  2. That it always has to involve alcohol (a number of the house concerts do not).
  3. That it is always a smoking zone (known exceptions: some early shows; house concerts; Cactus Cafe.)
  4. That it's only for the 20-somethings.
  5. That all the shows start at 1 a.m.
  6. That all live music happens on Sixth Street.
  7. That Sixth Street really has much to do with live music, at all.
  8. That the Austin music scene is dying.
  9. That the Austin music scene isn't dying (i.e. that it can sustain itself at the current levels without many new fans.)
  10. That all the musicians are amateurs.
  11. That much of any Austin music gets played on the radio.
  12. That moving to Austin is a way to "make it" in the music business.
