Austin is known as a hive for youth culture. We were able to take in three cultural activities in Austin.
A real fun event was the launch of the Naked Feminists, which is a comedy on the web. The writers and performers organized at the The Institution Theatre. An excellent evening of stand up comedy, music and the first episode of the show.

We attended a great performance of Dracula from Different Stages held at Vortex, which is an excellent small theater, bar and restaurant (OK, a food truck). It was done quite traditionally in terms of the script -- but not the staging.
And then for something completely different, we attended the Christmas concert of the Texas Early Music Project (TEMP). Which was of the highest standard.
