Live music venues for mature women who truly love music!

My woman friends and I are getting together in Austin and would like suggestions from those in the know about nice places to go hear live music. Last time we mistakenly stumbled into some dives and meat markets and we really would prefer to just listen to great music and enjoy one another's company!

The bar at the Driskill Hotel is gorgeous (downtown):

If you are downtown and need bkfst, lunch or dinner the 2nd Street District is a nice place to go. It is a tree lined street downtown with shops/food:

A lot depends on the type of music you like. I like the Continental Club and Antones because of the music they offer. You might think both are "dive" bars. What kind of music do you like?

Thanks for your response--that' a fair question! But not easy to answer as I'm very open-minded. My simplest response, especially when thinking of a night out in Austin, is any musical genre tinged with the blues. For example, I'm not much into Nashville-style country, but the last two Texans I saw perform live--Jimmie Vaughn and James McMurtry--were a treat.

Threadgills is a good one too. There are a couple of locations too. The Saxon Pub is also a good one. Full Service Bar and small intimate setting for great local bands.

I especially like this bar...

http://bdrileys.com/

Its just across the street and two doors down from The Driskill.

The music varies between Irish/Celtic, folk, jam, blues rock, and they have a couple of artists in their regular rotation who are really, really good (but I think they are touring Europe for the season).

Wow!! I was just surfing web and found Ray Benson's new club downtown and it has a rooftop bar area. Brand new. Looks like fun!

Photos look awesome:

I don't know if this list of martini bars downtown has music but they have links to their websites:

You didn't mention when you were coming or have you already been here?

Don't worry about the "mature" side. My reccomendation being a Mature male is stop at any bar and have one drink if you like the music have two drinks. Then move to the next bar you need to spend time with the very diffferent genre;s we have in Austin.
