Wade’s Alternatives to ACL

Wade here with some great events for those of us not interested in/can’t afford the Austin City Limits Music Festival. There is much awesomeness to choose from.

 

Ditch the Fest Fest 3 @ Spiderhouse & 29th Street Ballroom (Friday & Saturday doors at 5pm, $5 each day) including The Cocker Spaniels, Megafauna, Knifight and a lot more.

 

Austin City Locals @ Frontier Bar (Thursday through Sunday, 21+ FREE) featuring Schmillion, My Education and The Sour Notes among many others.

 

Silent City Limits @ Pine Street Station (Friday & Saturday starting at 10pm) benefitting the Enchanted Forest. A very worthy cause.

 

Friends, Diamond Rings @ Mohawk (Sunday, 6:30pm, FREE) two very good bands for an even better price at the best venue in Austin. You can’t lose.

 

Hope to see you out and about this weekend! Apologies in advance if I drunkenly hit on you.
