The Saxon Pub was one of the first venues I checked out when I moved to Austin, and instantly loved the laid back vibe and great music from the newest rising local acts to the most respected veteran musicians playing the Austin music scene from as far back as the 1970’s. It’s a top notch venue for anyone to say they’ve played, and a definite “must visit” for anyone new to Austin, Texas.

Excerpt from the Saxon Pub website:

“Opened in 1990, the Saxon has hosted well over 22,000 musical performances. It has been the location for films, videos and countless live recordings. On any given night you might see a major celebrity from the film or music industry either having a beer or sitting in on stage jamming with the locals. This award-winning listening room has helped launch the careers of several prominent entertainers. It is also known for booking some of the greatest music legends around, performing in an intimate atmosphere that Kris Kristofferson likened to ‘playing in his own living room’.”
