What we're about
• This group is for everyone interested in Honky Tonk, Outlaw Country, and Rockabilly music, vintage and retro events. We will be going to see and dance to a variety of honky tonk, rockabilly, outlaw country, country swing, east and west coast swing, surf guitar, garage bands and more. You’re welcome to sit back and listen, or dancing your boots off. Yep, dancing as in Two Steppin and country swing (lessons too). And yes that’s outlaw country, no country pop here. We will also check out Hot Rod shows, festivals, and private parties.

• There many of the best honky tonks in the state are right here in Austin, from The Broken Spoke, to The Little Long Horn (Ginny's), to the White Horse, Old Coupland Dance Hall, and so many more, we'll eventually hit them all. See our Honky Tonk Info and Club listing page at http://www.meetup.com/Austin-Honky-Tonk-Rockabilly/pages/Honky_Tonk_and_Club_Listing/
• We have weekly events with dance lessons at the White Horse on Saturday evening and at The Little Longhorn on Tuesdays. Other events are usually scheduled a week or two in advance, but be sure to keep your eye on the calendar as there often one or two last minute events that seem to pop up every month.
• If you're not a dancer but want to learn we'll have plenty of "learn to" opportunities at local honky tonks and a directory of private instructors. http://www.meetup.com/Austin-Honky-Tonk-Rockabilly/pages/Dance_Lessons/
• We have a few ground rules they're pretty simple: http://www.meetup.com/Austin-Honky-Tonk-Rockabilly/pages/Austin_Honky_Tonk_n_Rockabilly_Group_Ground_Rules/
