The Independent is a multi-use performance venue that is part of the 501 Studios Soundstage. It hosts concerts as well as occasional special screenings. Slackerwood contributors have not yet been to this venue, and would love to hear your feedback/advice.

Parking: Street parking nearby.

Bus routes: #4 (at Brushy & E. 6th)

Distance: 501 is just across I-35 from downtown, but you might not want to walk in that area at night. You could potentially find a pedicab to give you a lift from downtown to the venue.

Food and Beverages: We don't know what (if anything) is available in the theater. Cross I-35 and head down Sixth Street for a variety of restaurant/bar choices.

Wireless: Unknown.
