Great place to hear local musicians. Heard David Grissom at the free 6 pm "geezers show". Have multiple shows most nights. Some free some with cover.

Saxon Pub is a staple bar in Austin that gets really good bands. The night I was there we saw White Ghost Shivers, an eclectic band performing its own compositions rooted in American music from the 1920's-40's, great musicians all. Beer was $4.50 and drinks...More
