    It depends, for a lot of shows, especially the ones you pay to get into, they close all the doors/panels to fix that problem. It's also one of the best sounding rooms around.

    T Bone Stone has been doing his thing there on a Wednesday night for many a year, always makes me smile.

    Interesting. I did not think they were set up to receive a crowd yet. I wonder if it will be limited bar ?

    Chickie Wah Wah is supposed to reopen in September or, at least, that was the story a couple of weeks back.

    I do wish they would open as I can walk there and is a stop for some artists on tour that I love like Dave Alvin, Alejandro Escovedo or Joe Ely.

    One Eyed Jacks is not having any music yet. Not sure if the front bar is open or not.

    The Fillmore is still closed.

    Not that a lot of artists on tour come here in the Summer but many are touring or planning tours and hardly any are coming here as some venues are still closed. As much as I love local music I want to see some out of town acts come here to play.

    Jimmie Vaughan plays from 10:30 until to around 1:30-1:45 doing 2 sets. I've seen him there a bunch of times including last Friday when he had guests Sue Foley and Soul Man Sam. C-Boys is probably my favorite place to see music there along with sister club The Continental. Make sure to checkout The Jade Room, an upstairs lounge styled after 50s era Japanese GI bars. It's pretty cool.
    I will head over there as soon as Israel Nash ends, hopefully in time to catch Set II. I put the Continental Club right up there with Tipitina's and The Fillmore as my favorite venues ever so I am sure C-Boys must be great.

    Thanks for posting and I took notes. I am interested in the C-Boys venue as Jimmie Vaughan is there on the Friday. I am hoping it is still going after Israel Nash. (That's one thing about Austin as opposed to NOLA...last I was there, things shut down at 2.)

    Now if I can just land a ticket to the free show Bob Schneider is doing, I'll be set!

    Right on! I saw a reviewer say they were unfamiliar with him but saw a live show and was amazed how BIG their sound was. I am sure he applies the same attention to detail as he does in the studio to his live show. The sound on the rehearsal footage I posted is fantastic...sound great in headphones.
    Although “big” is a pretty broad description, I know what he means. The club in Philly isn’t very big but they sounded quite loud, but not deafening loud, and their sound board guy kept them that way with virtually no distortion. You should really enjoy it. I certainly did.
