It's dark, it's dirty and it smells like it looks. In effect, Beerland is exactly what you think a small music venue in Austin should be. The stage is just big enough to fit a four-person band and only slightly raised up from the audience. The bar is big enough to accommodate one and a half bartenders on a busy night — and they get busy thanks to the cheap beer prices and obscure bands. There's also one lone ratty couch up against the wall, but do yourself a solid and don't sit in it. Otherwise, enjoy the music, get drunk and have fun.
Beerland Karaoke happens every Monday night and actually draws a surprising array of singers.
