Music is the way to most Austinite’s hearts. Pay in advance for their SXSW pass or ACL pass so they can access all of the music and local bands their musical heart desires. If you’d rather see a local show together, buy some tickets and plan a special night out on the town. There are so many good ones, so it will be tough to choose, but if you know they love blues or rock, start there and see what’s around. cboys.com
