48. Cactus Cafe (While You Still Can)

February 17, 2010

With all the recent news surrounding the renowned Cactus Café I felt that it was only appropriate suggest that you take advantage of it while you still can.

The Cactus Café is one of Austin’s famous acoustic music venues location on the University of Texas campus and has been party of Austin culture since 1979 and unfortunately is set to close this summer. Billboard magazine listed the Cactus as one of fifteen “solidly respected, savvy clubs” nationwide “from which careers can be cut, that work with proven names and new faces.”

The Cactus Café has gotten the careers of many favorites to a start including Robert Earl keen, Lyle Lovette, Alison Krauss, Townes van Zandt, The Dixie Chicks, Patty Griffin, and many more.

Since the close of the Cactus Café was announced the city has rallied around it in an effort to keep it open so we will see what happens in the upcoming months. If it is indeed time for their doors to permanently close and you are a live music lover, treat yourself and take it in while you still can.

Tonight Mike Doughty will be there at 8:30 right now. Tickets are $20 in advance at area HEB’s and the Erwin Center Box Office.
