Upcoming Events: March 2021

Welcome to March! We hope you all made it through the storm OK and have water and power back by now. Under the state’s looser COVID guidelines more places are opening up for events here in Austin. However, Austin is at Austin and Travis County is recommending businesses, including restaurants and retail, to operate at 25-50% occupancy.

  • Practice good hygiene (wash hands, cover coughs and sneezes)
  • Wear a mask
  • Stay home if sick
  • Avoid sick people
  • Avoid non-essential travel

Here’s What’s Going On

We are still recommending you stay away from 6th street. Not that many subscribers to DSOA would hang out there, but people are reporting that the bridge and tunnel people and the bars are ignoring COVID guidelines.

If you do want to catch a show in person here are the places currently having in-person concerts.

  • Come and Take It Live
  • The Far Out Lounge and Stage
  • Hole in the Wall
  • Empire Control Room
  • Jester King Brewery
  • Hotel Vegas/Volstead Lounge

We’re not sure about the status of some venues. For example, Mohawk has a bunch of shows listed but many of the bands no longer list those shows on their own sites. We’re waiting to hear back from them to see what’s up.

We aren’t recommending shows, so check the calendar for the detailed show listings.

Yarrow and Sage continues to host the Witches’ Market, and Bloody Rose Boutique continues 3rd Sunday movie night with the Tigress Pub and Righteous Retro and is starting up their monthly markets. If you are into classic horror movies, the Drafthouse is having screenings of King Kong and the Terror of Mechagodzilla.

Elysium Fundraiser

Elysium has been closed since the city was shutdown last March. They are looking for help paying the rent and other bills until they can safely reopen. You can help out by donating to the GoFundMe at https://www.gofundme.com/f/fundraiser-for-elysium.

Visit the calendar to see all the events coming up this month and beyond.

Be careful. Be smart. Be safe.
