This store was a delight! I had to drag my husband away. There is a huge selection of posters, t-shirts, music-themed gifts, and musical instruments. The guitar selection was impressive and included many ukeles and traveling guitars. The staff was friendly and courteous, answering questions without being intrusive. This store is worth a visit if you are in downtown Austin.

Stopped here because my son is a musician and it sounded like fun. They have everything from tchochkies, paintings and prints, jewelry, and tees, as well as instruments and accessories such as guitar straps. We buy an ornament from each of our travels and they had miniature instruments you don't usually find - oboes, accordions etc, as well as guitars... More

My husband is a musician and they have everything music related~guitars, instruments, T-shirts, shirts, pictures, etc. As we were looking around a nice lady started talking with us and asked us if we would be interested in taking a tour of Austin. Since I feel that is the way you really... More

Wild About Music is a small, fun, eclectic retail store that has been in downtown Austin for many years. In the early 2000's we bought several art pieces we still enjoy and our first Austin City Limits tees long before they were sold at the airport shop. The newer location on 2nd Street is in the mix of the locally... More

We walked in to look around and they had super cute things to buy with anything music related. I did not get anything but worth taking a peek at.
