Getting to Austin for South by Southwest is always an adventure, so I’m
happy to report that the only damage I incurred on my way to The Buffalo
Lounge was an unexpected oil change.
It was remarkably easy to find The
Buffalo Lounge’s new digs at The 512, as the venue sits even closer to
the center of the action on Sixth than the old location of Friends Bar
The location of the venue isn’t the only thing to laud: The new two-floor setup delivered as advertised.
The upstairs and downstairs were distinct enough that activities from one didn’t interfere with the other. This was clear as soon as I walked in toward the end of the last day sets on Tuesday: The downstairs sound and upstairs sound had nothing in common but the name on the door.
