213 W. 5th Street, Austin, TX, USA - 512.320.8424
Antone's - Drive-By Truckers' Dirt Underneath tour at Antone's was a semi-acoustic show.  Unusual for the band because they usually rock hard, and unusual for Antone's because it was a sit-down show.

Want tips for seeing shows at Antone's?

Get there early to get a good spot near the stage. If it's a big show, buy a ticket in advance.

Get your shoes shined by the guy near the bathroom.

TIP YOUR BARTENDER! It's the right thing to do, and odd's are your bartender is my friend. :)
