    Ok, count me in, I’m a big fan of this place, was here for the first last night to see Lucius. Think the tickets were maybe 12 bucks each, quite a steal indeed. We stopped and had a drink at The Underground first before they were letting folks upstairs, and they most definitely will NOT take it upstairs, seems they share separate liquor licenses. They have two bars, don’t know how much beers are since I let my lady buy the beers in a reversal of sorts. I was worried about the sound after hearing the first band, but it was the band, not the venue ’cause Lucius sounded perfect! The staff was pretty friendly, coming and going they wished us a good show. Certainly a younger, college crowd of course being on sixth street. Crowd was generally well behaved, they did have seating along with a padded bench along the right side of the wall for us old geezers out there. This experience made me feel like I was back in my college days in the 90’s hearing classic alternative rock! Good times, I’ll be back.

    Intimate setting, with great sound. What more could you want from a music venue. Not too crowded, and no awkward spots that limit viewing. If you come early even some comfortable spots to sit against the wall. The bartenders were friendly and the service was good. Better yet, clean bathrooms that were well lit.

    Came here tonight with my wife for Austin Free Music week. Really impressed with the sound and the bands were fantastic from the ones we heard. Definitely swing through here for some good tunes.

    The Parish is probably my favorite place to see a show in Austin. When I first walked into this venue, it was instant-love. Who wouldn’t want to see a show in a weirdly elegant, funky, historic, hip venue that’s a good size and has great acoustics? Somehow this place maintains an intimate vibe, despite its sometimes large crowds.

    Probably my favorite small indoor concert venue in Austin. It holds about 500-600 people, the sound is usually spectacular, and they have a decent selection of reasonably priced local beers. Most crowds here are respectful to the artists, in direct contrast to the social hour at Stubb’s. I love the black walls and chandelier lighting. If you need to sit down, there’s seating along one wall, although it’s often full. There are a couple pillars that can block views in certain places, and yeah it’s on 6th street, which is a pain – but other than that, 5 stars.
