As Austin’s official slogan is The Live Music Capital of the World, the city has a vibrant live music scene with more music venues per capita than any other U.S. city. Austin’s music revolves around the many nightclubs on 6th Street and an annual film/music/interactive festival known as South by Southwest (SXSW). Austin has a strong theater culture, with dozens of itinerant and resident companies producing various works. The Church of the Friendly Ghost is a volunteer-run arts organization supporting creative expression and the counter-culture community.
