Will Dripping Springs become the New Live Music Capital of the WORLD? I’m not sure. But this is a damned good start.
I remember when I relocated to West of Dripping Springs 10 years ago. A girl came out and she said that she loved the country but couldn’t live out there. Why? I asked. There was no place to shop, she said. That really furrowed the brow. Austin had nowhere to shop back then – it’s slightly better now – some 10 years later – but only by really small margins. I always wondered what it was that she was shopping for in Austin? Legos? Magic tricks? Secret decoder rings? It will remain a mystery. On second thought – I bet it was drugs. Had to be. Right?
