Whetstone Audio is located in beautiful East Austin, just across I-35, on E. 6th St. There are many artist compounds and galleries in the area. Once a bastion to low rent, it is now being bought up by developers seeking to turn it into a cosmopolitan area. No Fear! There is a diverse mix to the area and plenty of people who are still trying to “Keep Austin Weird” in this pathetic era of Big Box mentality. A bi-yearly event called EAST AUSTIN STUDIO TOUR gives artists a chance to open up their doors and invite the public into a World not offered in the Mall.
