In Austin, we pride ourselves in having live music in unexpected places - grocery stores, hike and bike trails, our airport and now the NEW Austin Visitor Center.

This month's Austin Music Residency features a series of local artists playing every other Friday afternoon. Kicked off by the lovely Elizabeth McQueen Trio on June 6, this new set of afternoon shows, Local & Live,will take place every other Friday from 4 p.m. 6 p.m. and are free and open to the public. Each performance will provide the audience with a more intimate experience with the artists, who will usually be playing solo or acoustic sets.
