Long Live Liberty Lunch – Austin, TX 03/08/2008
If you're looking for the address or driving directions to this legedary Austin live music venue you're too late.
Liberty Lunch closed forever after the Toadies show the night of July 31, 1999. The last music played for the public was "The End" by the Beatles.
The property that Liberty Lunch was built on was owned by the City of Austin. The City self promotes itself as "The Live Music Capital of the World". How ironic that it would have "the best venue to listen to live music" (Austin Chronicle Music Award 10 years running) torn down to make way for a cumputer tech company.
During its years of operation The Lunch was home to a wildly diverse collection of musical styles. Local, regional, national and international acts in country, ska, reggae, punk, metal, blues, funk, rap, and big band all played to equally diverse audiences.
If you had a chance to see any of the shows at Liberty Lunch before it's demise, consider yourself lucky. There will never be another place quite like The Lunch to see and hear live music in Austin.
