Live music at the Pun-Off

The Greatest American Heroes (greatestamericanheroes.com) and the O. Henry Pun-Off represent all the weirdness Austin has to offer. While not as old as the Pun-Off, the Greatest American Heroes have been playing TV theme songs in Austin since 2001. If you think about it, 13 years (or 13 seasons) is longer than most TV shows last. No one has ever challenged their self-christened title of “Austin’s Favorite TV Theme Song Band.”
