Austin is alive this weekend with the third annual Austin City Limits Music Festival. For various reasons, I have made the decision to pass on spending the next three days in the heat, spending five dollars on beer and then standing in line for an hour to use the portopotties. Don’t get me wrong, I’m dissappointed to miss the music all 130 bands (of which I might have seen a third of the acts) but time is money and I was offered the chance to make some time this weekend.
Which leads me to the title of this post. If you are like me and have some spare time this weekend, but aren’t dropping the $72 for tickets check out Yahoo’s Launch. They are airing live feeds from the festival all day long. You might not be spending six dollars on a hot dog, but you just might catch the set from a band you were remiss to be missing.
w00t! Good alternative! Maybe I’ll throw down on some of that in the background while watching the games on Sunday!
