Straight up from a local; skip 6th street (Dirty 6th). It's for college kids and tourists.

Finding an AirBnB in the 7870478704 zip and especially in the area around South Congress puts you close to music and clubs in that area as well as a walk or short Uber to Rainey Street, the East Side between East Cesar Chavez Street and East 12th Street, and to downtown areas including W 6th St (west of Congress Ave.), the Second Street District as well as West 4th Street

Other good areas to look in would be Clarksville just west of downtown and the area and The University of Texas at AustinHyde Park and the Brentwood area. The near east side works as well.

Welcome to Austin and have a wonderful time!

You would want to stay near Sixth Street, because there are a number of great pubs and/or restaurants and music bars there. I went to the AIRBNB site, and there are a number of places for rent in the downtown area. I would suggest that you visit https://www.airbnb.com/s/Austin--TX--United-States/homes?allow_override%5B%5D=&ne_lat=30.29133395165094&ne_lng=-97.72649070860172&search_by_map=true&sw_lat=30.247156942861643&sw_lng=-97.75816223264957&zoom=14&s_tag=FHlAWpWl and select one that is downtown.

Plan on visiting the Bat Bar, or the San Jac Saloon, or the Rattle Inn, or the Blind Pig PubThe Chuggin' MonkeyDirty Dog Bar or just plan on walking up & down Sixth Street and picking places that have the type of music you want to hear.
