Postscript: The Oaks, Live!
The Oaks was a beautiful music venue, bar and traditional ice house located on 100 acres at the outskirts of Austin near Manor, Texas.
The indoors seated 200 people, including a covered deck overlooking Gilleland Creek -- sprawling elms and oaks that were home to deer, rabbits, hawks, and more. The outdoor stage and dance area accommodated 1,000 people for larger touring acts
So what went wrong?
Better to ask why the Armadillo, the real Zona Rosa, The Backyard, Henry's, and so many others are gone...
Good night, Austin -- sleep well.
