Austin City Limits Aftershows

The idea of the “ACL Aftershow” has always been somewhat baffling to me. After a day of loud music, sweat, dehydration, and dirt in every corporal crevice imaginable, it’s hard to see why anyone would want to see anything but their bed (and of course rest up for two more fun filled days!). But this year, as I don’t have the funds for ACL (well… it’s that or three week’s worth of tofu), it seems I will be an aftershow rat.

Below is the entire list of aftershows with my picks in bold. I will be posting more information about these shows, as well as other ACL aftershows soon. You can also visit aclfestival.com/aftershows for more info and go here for tickets.
