Which Austin musical acts are the best of the nationally unknown?

Austin was long ago dubbed the “Live Music Capital of the World,” and rightfully so; there is always someone to go see on any given night in our great city. The flip side of this, much like five thousand cable channels on your TV, is that talented acts can get lost in the shuffle. Fear not, we have a list of can’t-miss musical acts diverse as the city itself.

We know some of you might have heard one or all of the artists on the list, and that some of the acts have been around for years, but we are guessing most of you haven’t. So if you want to be that guy who heard of them first, peruse the list. It spans the entire breadth of music, from bluegrass to rap, and everything in between.

Take advantage of this great city we live in, and go see these guys and girls live. Music is intended to be enjoyed live, so get out there and enjoy!
