In the Rear View

Nighttime is the right time

Austin is the live music capital of the world, and it's easy to hear why.

Melodies pours out of all the clubs on 4th, 5th, and 6th street and buskers stud the sidewalks. A walk around the block is like scanning the radio. You can hear rock, blues, country, r&b, jazz, punk, techno, alternative, barbershop quartets--you name it.

After passing by the famous Stubbs, and Club de Ville (which is an amphitheater carved out of bedrock), we were drawn into Nuno's on Sixth by a smooth soulful sound, the sound of a guitar player called Daddy I, and a band called Hot Sauce.

These four guys really laid it down. And Nuno's was a great hangout because everyone was there to sit back and enjoy the music. We were mesmerized by their entire set, and Daddy I's wife even pulled me on the dance floor to teach me some moves. A lesson I won't soon forget, and a night we won't either.

  1. Max When you are at Erica's party and if there is music you are going to have to show some of those moves. Sounded great. Miss you
