On February 26th my favorite music venue, Stubb’s Bar-B-Q, entertained with a show that was not to be forgotten. So let us jump right in shall we?
Stubb’s has been a staple of music enjoyment since I was younger. Hosting small indoor sets and large world wide touring bands outdoors, Stubb’s is easily, in my opinion, the best live music venue in Texas. Hosting the likes of Incubus, Thrice, Motorhead, Ben Folds, Nora Jones, and The Used, Stubb’s set resume is and always has been quite impressive.
Not only is it a great venue but Stubb’s is also well recognized for their outstanding bar-b-q. Their repertoire produces such delights as pork ribs with meat that falls right off of the bone, brisket that melts in your mouth, and local beer that does the state of Texas proud. So you show up early, grab some insane ribs, an ice cold Shiner Bock, wash up, and head out to the back for a great show. Stubb’s also has an indoor stage where you can catch some great acoustic acts as well as some smaller full band performances while you pig out. Most of their larger more theatrical shows are held in their outdoor amphitheater.
