Just returned from Austin, and it's a great town where they do things quite a bit differently.
I would never be crazy about living in Texas, but this is a place where I could really stand to spend some more time. There is live music being played everywhere, from the airport to bar rooftops at night to a guy playing a piano under the columns of a corporate skyscraper.
Here are a handful of images that represent Austin's feel. From top left then clockwise: a display in a shop on famed East 6th Street called Crazy About Music, Austin legend Willie Nelson's street with my Raddison hotel in the background, and famed Emo's rock club with some interestingly named artists soon coming to town.
