While dates from individual artist schedules have been known to dampen the effect when a new venue releases its inaugural schedule, you gotta admit the initial calendar for Austin City Limits Live At The Moody Theater in Austin, Texas, is quite impressive.
Along with providing state-of-the-art technology in a venue where no seat is more than 75 feet from the stage, ACL Live will also be the new home for PBS’ “Austin City Limits,” the longest running music show in TV history.
But before we dive into the schedule we need to tell you about two special shows – Cody Canada & The Departed Feb. 11 and Los Amigos Invisibles with Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue Feb. 18. Both gigs are special $5 open houses with that low, low price made possible by the United Heritage Credit Union and benefiting the Health Alliance For Austin Musicians (HAAM).
