Feeling the post-fest blues and need something to look forward to? Austin is still one of the best live music cities anywhere and Jenny (Beat Happenings, The Clear Spot) has compiled a list of upcoming spring shows along with a Mixcloud playlist for your listening pleasure. This is just the taste of one DJ and shows are constantly being booked, especially local bands, so use this as a starting point and follow your favorite local bands on social media or check local listing sites often for updates. 

Note: some obvious (and great!) concerts are missing from this list; we didn’t think Bob or Neil needed our endorsement.
