The San Marcos Music Scene

The fun doesn’t end when the sun goes down in San Marcos. In fact, we would say, you are only getting started! There’s always something going on in San Marcos and you can bet you’ll find live music every night of the week. Legendary career-launching stages. Small hole-in-the-wall bars. Big two-story concert theater. Quaint coffee shop with local vibes. Just want a cold beer and a game of horseshoes? Maybe a quiet courtyard with the perfect margarita? How about a cool outdoor deck where your pup is welcome? No problema. Whatever you’re in the mood for, there’s a venue in San Marcos that will hit just the right note.
