WE'RE STANDING WITH AUSTIN!
What began as our Live Morning Broadcast during SXSW, evolved into a closed door series of sessions and chats at one of our favorite night spots, 3TEN ACL LIVE —but then with talk of bar and restaurant closures coming (and they did), we had to scramble for a Plan C. Here it is:
Friday night at 8pm, along with our friends at Austin City Limits the television show and The Austin City Limits Music Festival, we’re hosting ACL Stands With Austin. It’s a program dedicated to the folks who are hardest hit by the SXSW cancellation and ensuing health crisis—the music and service industry pros who literally have made our city famous. We’ll raise money for the Austin Community Foundation’s Stand With Austin campaign, while you enjoy special performances live on the radio on 97.1FM ACL Radio, acl-radio.com, and additional platforms from a series of Austin mainstays and friends of our town.
Watch and listen to work-at-home exclusive performances from…
Britt Daniel of Spoon, Shakey Graves, The Texas Gentlemen, David Ramirez, Bob Schneider, Jackie Venson, Guy & Jeska Forsyth and some longtime friends of Austin City Limits Radio from across the country, including Hanson, Lisa Loeb and Brian Fallon. Plus there’s more we’ll be ready to announce soon!
Also slated are guests from the bar and restaurant community, from HAAM, and visits with Mayor Steve Adler, and more, hosted by the ACL Radio crew.
