I know this thread is really old. But for anyone else trying to find shit to do in austin, there are a few punk co-op houses there. I used to live at a place called the comal house. Its a different crowd of kids there now but they're still traveler friendly as far as I know and they will probably put u up for a few nights. Its on Comal and 21st. Its easy to figure out which house it is. Lots of bikes etc. There's also the spotted dick house in austin Cant remember exactly where that is but if you ask around at the comal house someone will point you over there. The Spotted dick house has lots of good shows. Fuck hangin out on guadelupe, its mostly "oogles" and junkies and rude frat boys and sorority girls.
