About


The Parish is a haven where sound is sacred. A roof under which no genre is discriminated and no one is the black sheep. Before the moon nestles at the top of the sky, we relish in an assortment of comedy, burlesque, and guitar-driven magic from straight rock ‘n roll to bluegrass, jazz, and the newest indie rock darlings on the scene. As the moon begins to rise to its peak, we open our doors for NIGHT MASS: a nocturnal dance party with the best house, dubstep, bass, and electronic music around to keep you dancing until 4am. Our doors are hidden among the madness, but ascend the staircase and you’ll find Sixth Street’s little secret. Seek and you shall find.

The Parish is widely regarded as the best indoor live music venue in Austin, offering the highest quality production for artists and private events alike. The Parish has been influential in the success of Austin musicians such as Spoon and Shakey Gravesh, hosted musical legends such as Pete Townshend, Slash, Perry Farrell, and Thom Yorke, as well as up and coming artists such as Alt-J, Tycho, ZZ Ward, and Bonobo. In addition to its stellar reputation for live music, The Parish also welcomes the Moontower Comedy Festival, the CMA Songwriters series, various PBS Showcases, live podcast tapings, and numerous conferences and corporate events annually. The Parish also hosts private events, ranging from corporate events to elaborate wedding receptions. Our catering, bar, A/V and entertainment booking services provide a complete package to easily plan any event. Check out our Private Events page for more information.
