Austin City Limits Presents Fun Events This Spring

There are some really great events coming up this Spring 2017 presented by Austin City Limits.

Bloody Mary Morning

Austin City Limits and KLRU-TV (the Austin PBS channel) are hosting the 6th Annual Bloody Mary Morning during SXSW on Thursday, March 16 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m in the GSDM courtyard.

This year they will have their biggest lineup yet and includes some of music’s most talked about artists from around the world: blues revivalist duo Little Hurricane, Canadian country standout Colter Wall, U.K. rockers Sundara Karma, Third Man recording artist Lillie Mae, Minneapolis breakout rapper/singer Lizzo, Australian indie-folk up-and-comer Slow Dancer, and veteran indie music outliers R. Stevie Moore & Jason Falkner.

While supplies last, you can also enjoy free Bloody Marys from Tito’s VodkaShiner Beer, and breakfast tacos from Tacodeli. Bloody Mary Morning is brought to you by our friends The Guild, NetApp, and YETI.

You don’t need a SXSW badge to attend – Bloody Mary Morning is free and open to the public. You can RSVP here.

New Tapings of Austin City Limits

Austin City Limits will be taping its 43rd season for PBS. They’ve already announced the Pretenders for March 13th, and Miranda Lambert on April 19th. The Head and the Heart will be taped on May 22nd and Norah Jones on June 11th.

Miranda Lambert will be recording her third appearance on ACL on April 19th in support of her new album The Weight of These Wings. Since her  first appearance in 2006, this Texas native has earned widespread acclaim including two Grammy Awards, thirteen Country Music Association Awards, and twenty-five Academy of Country Music Awards.

The Seattle band, The Head and The Heart, is back at ACL to promote their third album, Signs of Light. Vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Charity Rose Thielen says “This is the album where we really fell into our true voices as artists.”

Norah Jones swept the 2003 Grammy Awards and changed the prevailing winds of pop music of that time. Jones has sold 50 million albums worldwide and won 9 Grammy awards, returning to ACL in 2007 and again in 2013. Jones has recently released Day Breaks, her sixth album returning to her jazz piano roots, while still keeping her unique sound that blends many styles of American music: country, folk, rock, soul, jazz.
