One Man Band On S. Congress Ave., Austin, Texas

A street musician at work on S. Congress Avenue, a major thoroughfare in Austin. The street is a six-lane, tree lined avenue that cuts through the middle of the city from far south Austin and goes over Lady Bird Lake leading to Downtown and the Texas State Capitol. This one man band was captured in the area known as South Congress, often abbreviated to SoCo. The area is filled with restaurants, funky vintage shops, chic boutiques, cool bars, and, of course, live music.

 

With a population of just over one million residents, Austin is the 10th largest city in the United States. The Austin-Round Rock-San Marcos Metropolitan Area, now with a population of 2.3M, also is the fastest growing large metropolitan area in the country having added more than 579,000 residents since 2010.
