Consequence of Sound recently published a definitive list of the 100 greatest American music venues. The article’s coverage, self described as “a first-class, front-row ticket to this country’s most vital concert halls” naturally includes venues located in the city of Austin, a place commonly hailed as “The Live Music Capital of the World.” This year Austin was fortunate to have a total of three venues grace this listing–occupying lower portions on the list, with one venue in particular breaking into the top 10!

It’s been awhile since I’ve visited the North Door, but my ears perked up when I was assigned to cover The Bare Feat’s final farewell show. The music club is located on the city’s East Side and on Jan. 22, 2016 the venue was packed with patrons and a seasoned list of local musical acts. The nights’ line-up included Waking Fable, Edison Chair and last but not least The Bare Feat. Although this was the final show for The Bare Feat have no fear because they are rebranding as Chief Perch and it will be exciting to see what comes with new changes.
