Went to see Russell Peters at Austin City Limitts and was very happy with the venue. I can't really talk about acoustics over all since we had seats that were very close to the front and center and only had to hear one person talking on stage. Seats were very comfortable and the whole night was really good fun. Rather... More

Awesome venue with a great history behind it. It's within walking distance from many hotels, including where I stayed - the JW Marriott. A must see if you're visiting Austin!

Great music venue in downtown Austin. Within walking distance of the JW Marriott where I stayed. Gorgeous interior and an iconic place to visit while in Austin.

There is no better place in Austin to see a concert! It is basically a recording set (used for the tv show) but now many roadshows move through there with tickets for sale. Every seat is great and good options for beverages and food. Even better yet it is attached to the W hotel in downtown Austin.

After much perseverance, I won 2 passes to ACL Live taping of Cassandra Wilson and it was a great experience. There isn't a bad seat in the house & it was great fun to hear an incredible performance while watching the taping in progress. Check out their web site if you're heading into town; you might get lucky, too!

This was a really cool experience! We saw War on Drugs. I hadn't even heard of them before but we had a great time just jamming.

Each time I go my mind is blown away. I have discovered some amazing artists in here which are not that famous in the country. In 2013 in the middle of the concert a kid got lost. So, the singer on the stage was telling us what the kid was wearing and how he looked. 2-3 minutes later the crowd... More

Great food great music people were fun.... Beer was pricy. However the event was well organized and easy to maneuver. Teens have already planned next year... Wear good shoes and drink a ton of water. Once in lifetime experience!!

A bucket list event! Unbelievable, all music lovers should visit this venue. Close up and personal with the musicians. Willie and family was as good at 81 as ever! A very good museum with photographs of rock stars from years past. And Tito's vodka everywhere!! Enough said!

I was visiting my life-time girlfriend in Austin, and Austin City Limits Live was going on at the same time as when I arrived. For me it was a wonderful experience being in Austin at this time, Because the Music is "Everywhere"! I'm a New Yorker (up-state) from the country and we don't have music everywhere. This was a treat...treat...treat!... More
