Come to StackCity Austin

Did you miss this year’s South by Southwest? Do you always watch Austin City Limits? Do you think you know your Austin bands?

From Country to Rock, 60s Music to Bluegrass, Jazz to Indie, we have you covered. Laugh at Comedians, listen to our Poetry Slam, and enjoy the Improv … we have lined up an OpenStack Community Festival of Austin bands and artists just for you.

If you want to participate, step right up: Sing with a band at our open mic stage, race Armadillos, play Chickenshit Bingo, or garner extra style points when you fall off the Mechanical Bull. There are untold options to take part in this evening of many delights. And surprises along the way to pick up. You might find your hands (and pockets) full at the end of the night.

Join us for a superb evening with some of the best BBQ in the world, beer brewed especially for this evening by some of the best local brewers, cocktails from nationally acclaimed mixologists, and great Hill Country wines.

From 7pm / 19:00 on Tuesday, the 26th of April, we invite you to Rainey Street to be part of StackCity Austin, the Community Festival for Stackers.

Info about the venue

The formerly sleepy area near the banks of Lady Bird Lake in Austin, Rainey Street has morphed into the hot spot for locals. Old bungalows have been fixed up and turned into bars, cocktail lounges and music venues with ample backyards and porches. Join the Austinites in the know to experience some of the city’s best bars and music!

How to get there

Rainey Street is easily reachable on foot. From the south end of the Austin Convention Center, walk east on East Cesar Chavez Street. Turn right and cross E Cesar Chavez at the lights on Red River Street. Follow Red River Street and turn left onto Driskill Street. You will see our Information Desk and Coat Check tent on the left. Turn right to enter Rainey Street. Have fun at StackCity Austin!
