Just a note to clarify, Emo's is not going to be country music of any fashion. It hosts mostly bands somewhere on the loud rock to punk spectrum, sometimes hip-hop. The Continental Club will host alt-country bands and lots of singer-songwriters, but it's not a place for country dancing, if that's what you're looking for. If you want country dancing, The Broken Spoke is your best bet in town. Nutty Brown Cafe has a great outdoor stage and seating area, but you will need a car to get out there or it would be a pretty expensive cab ride.

MrTed is right on the money. Broken Spoke is just about the most country (music and dancing) that I can think of in central austin. Saxon can have good country sometimes but it is tight inside.
