Austin is becoming more and more known as a foodie town. There’s barbecue worth waiting in line for at Franklin BBQ, La Barbecue, and Micklethwait Craft Meats, sushi worth spending your whole paycheck on at Uchi, and everything in between!

"It’s a big show for a lot of reasons. … Many of the people coming out have been fans and friends for decades. Antone’s was such an important club for me. I was there as a kid. I was there as a teen. I started playing shows with many of my idols on that stage. Austin is, and always has been, my musical home. It’s an honor to be able to be able to stand on the same stage (symbolically) that I have since I was a kid. So much of my life was on that stage, and I love it." – Ian Moore in today’s Austin American @statesman Tickets to both nights of Ian Moore’s 50th Birthday Celebration & CD Release with Eric Tessmer are almost sold out.
