This is a GREAT store with unusual but high quality souvenirs. There is so much to look at - from wine bottle sculptures to postcards. It's all about the music and it is an absolute must when you're on 6th Street. The people are very nice and accommodating and the store is clean and not junky. You can browse for... More

This place has the best not too touristy souvenirs that you'd actually want to buy, not just as a traveler. Very music based with cool postcards, magnets, t-shirts, prints, everything. So much cool stuff and its right on 6th street so its not off the beaten path at all. It also has all sorts of eclectic stuff, I don't know... More

We stayed across the street from this store and wandered in to see what it was all about. We ended up staying for awhile. Really unique t-shirts (way too pricey unfortunately) I rarely see a T shirt which I think is cool and they had a bunch. Had they been within a normal price range I would have snagged a... More

Loved looking around this store. I love musical art and music themed items and this was a neat place. I would have spent more money but didn't want to carry the stuff around all night. I will definitely go back with more money and be more prepared to bring stuff home.

Thanks so much for visiting us! We are so glad you had such a wonderful experience while in our gallery.

We arrived downtown Austin early on a Sunday morning before anything was open. So as our walking tour began we leisurely window shopped at many of the stores. Of the numerous venues we had to choose from my husband specifically wanted to come back to "Wild About Music". After walking across the Colorado River to see the "Stevie Ray Vaughan"... More

It's fun to walk around this store and look at stuff, but in the end we weren't really moved to buy anything. Just a lot of stuff made in Asia, and a few nice art pieces downstairs in the gallery area. But if you really need a Beatles oven mitt or something, this is the place to go.

Has some cool unique music art and some special Texas music items. However, If I had known I would have to pay to park, I wouldn't have gone in. If you are looking for items for specific artists (I was looking for Bob Marley items), you may find a few items, but not much.

I know it's name indicates music, but the have a lot of stuff. My wife and I were on 6th Street for Halloween. We wandered in , and several hundred dollars later we walked out with some really unique clothes for me. A little expensive, but very unique.
