Known as a liberal haven in the giant red state, Austin, Texas, has been striving to keep it weird for years. The city is constantly evolving, and quickly — just look toward downtown and you’ll notice the ever-present cranes and construction. Locals contend with the city’s perceived change, which is different depending on who you ask. To some, it seems Austin has forsaken its weirdness for growth in industry, welcoming tech heads, filmmakers, and of course, musicians. During a few weeks out of the year in March, the city transforms to accommodate an array of music lovers and media enthusiasts for SXSW, but there’s a completely different side of Austin present through all other times of the year. As we head into fall, which some say is the best time to visit ATX, flip through our ultimate Austin city guide with recommendations from some of the best local musicians like Okkervil River, Shakey Graves, …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead and more.
