Friday night at 8pm CT, Austin City Limits Radio (97.1 FM), Austin City Limits TV and The Austin City Limits Music Festival will host ACL Stands With Austin. It’s a two-hour telethon-style program dedicated to the folks who are hardest hit by not just SXSW’s cancellation but also the 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 fund, while you enjoy special performances live on the radio on 97.1FM ACL Radio, acl-radio.com, acltv.com and additional platforms from a series of Austin mainstays and friends of our town.
Among the artists who’ve shared with us exclusive work-at-home performances: Britt Daniel of Spoon, Shakey Graves, The Texas Gentlemen, David Ramirez, Bob Schneider, Jackie Venson, Abraham Alexander, Guy & Jeska Forsyth and some longtime friends of Austin City Limits Radio from across the country, including Hanson, Lisa Loeb, and Brian Fallon of The Gaslight Anthem.
Also, as part of this web/radio-athon, we’ll talk about the crisis and its impact on musicians, restaurateurs, and service industry professionals with:
Austin Mayor Steve Adler
HAAM’s Reenie Collins
The Red River Cultural District’s Cody Cowan and Antone’s Will Bridges
Holly Roller’s Callie Spears
