Austin is the music capital and Austin City Limits needs to be one of your stops while visiting. The band profiting was the Nightowls and they're energy filled the room.

I was here for the Marilyn Manson and Smashing Pumpkins concert. I had already seen them twice that week, in different cities in Texas. This place has by far the best acoustics ever. It was definitely designed to hear your music as best as possible. The seating isn't bad, but there are quite a few spots with obstructed view towards... More

As a kid watching PBS with her dad on Saturday nights ACL was a staple esp. when Waylon, Willie and the boys were on, this was a must to say I got to see the building. The day we visited there was a function inside the hall so I couldn't go in and there wasn't a show that week. But... More

Studio quality recording, not a bad seat in the house -- and even reasonably priced drinks. Steep steps so keep that in mind but they make for excellent view from every single seat.

Must see attraction on July 4th of every year if not rainy! Done on auditorium grounds. Better view from Lake or Pedestrians Bridge near 4th street on Lamar. Best time from 7 to 10 p.m

This is a phenomenal experience! Moody Theater is the place for live entertainment. You definitely feel part of the "in" crowd when there, no matter what your age! Doesn't matter who is playing, just go!

Loved the theater, the location. Floor seating was fun but difficult to return to my spot mid concert after going for a restroom break. Will probably book above the floor next time.

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!
