I consider myself pretty in-the-know about Austin's music scene, and I had heard of the Skylark Lounge, but I don't think I was the only one who was floored when Yelp named it the best small to medium sized live music venue in the entire USA, based on their user data - no small feat! Proprietor Johnny LaTouf is a longtime resident and businessman on the east side, and clearly takes no small amount of pride in East Austin's heritage - great insight on the value of remembering that heritage as we plow into the future, below.
