1. Drive-in concerts
We’ve been missing live music this year and Love & Lightstream along with Haute Spot Venue has thought of a perfect way to get your live music fix while safe and staying socially distant. They are hosting Drive In concerts featuring local Austin musicians. What’s even better about this concert series is that proceeds of the events go to help support the Austin live music industry through non-profit organizations. Concerts are also live-streamed, so you can enjoy the show from the comfort of home as well.
