Wherever I go in the country, or the world for that matter, if there is a music-related site I take the trouble to visit it.

AUSTIN, Texas — The Texas Capital, the Live Music Capital of the World, the Velvet Crown, Bat City or simply River City. Residents of Austin claim many titles and are known for their slogan: "Keep Austin Weird." Some locals pejoratively call their hometown "festival city," since there seems to be one every weekend, such as South by Southwest or Austin City Limits Music Festival.

And the best thing for a city that prides itself on environmentalism is that all of the sites can be visited in a single day's walk, and all of them are free.
