ACL Live

Austin, TX  78701 Map

An Evening with Lyle Lovett and his Large Band A singer, composer and actor, Lye Lovett has broadened the definition of American music in a career that spans 14 albums over three decades. Coupled with his gift for storytelling, the Texas-based musician fuses elements of Americana, swing, jazz, folk, gospel and blues in a convention-defying manner that breaks down barriers. Whether touring as a ‘Duo’ or with his ‘Acoustic Group’ or ‘The Large Band’, Lovett’s live performances show not only the breadth of this Texas legend’s deep talents, but also the diversity of his influences, making him one of the most compelling and captivating musicians in popular music. Since his self-titled debut in 1986, Lyle Lovett has evolved into one of music’s most vibrant and iconic performers. Among his many accolades, besides the four Grammy Awards, he was given the Americana Music Association’s inaugural Trailblazer Award, and was named Texas State Musician. His works, rich and eclectic, are some of the most beloved of any living artist working today. Doors: 6:30 PM · Show: 8:00 PM... See MoreSee Less

Pachanga presents Los Tigres del Norte | ACL Live

August 26, 2016, 8:00pm

ACL Live
310 W Willie Nelson Blvd
Austin, TX  78701 Map

¡También ahora hay una gran pista de baile en la planta baja! ¡Mucho espacio para bailar toda la noche! Presented by Pachanga Latino Music Festival and supported by Univision, H-E-B and Whataburger. Con todo el orgullo en la frente y una carrera sin precedentes como "el grupo regional mexicano más influyente” (Billboard) siendo también considerados "los referentes más grandes del género” (New York Times). Los legendarios Los Tigres del Norte permanecen como una de las principales voces creativas y sociales de la Música Latina, continúan vendiendo millones de álbumes, liderando las listas de ventas y popularidad radiofónica así como ganando múltiples premios Grammy y el Grammy latino. Ahora "Los Jefes de Jefes" miran hacia adelante con el próximo lanzamiento de su nuevo material "Detalles y Emociones". El álbum continúa con la misma propuesta de Los Tigres del Norte como "la voz prominente de la comunidad inmigrante" cuenta con 15 canciones nuevas, las cuales dan vida a las emociones del pueblo ya sea en forma de corridos, baladas, cumbias o rancheras. Este álbum incluye a compositores prominentes del género como: Paulino Vargas hijo, Manuel Eduardo Toscano, Francisco Quintero y Pablo Castro entre otros. El primero sencillo del álbum "Detalles" (que se posicionó rápidamente en la cima de las listas de popularidad radiofónicas de música Latina), es un corrido franco que recuerda a los fans que aunque muchos persigan sueños de riqueza material, la verdadera demostración de afecto y cariño es para nuestros seres queridos quienes son nuestra riqueza más grande. Otro éxito del álbum ya mencionado es una de las canciones más controversiales de Los Tigres del Norte, titulada "El Muro", un tema muy veraz que desafía la idea propuesta de la construcción del muro entre Los Estados Unidos y México. Contiene como "bonus” un tema muy especial donde Jorge Hernández, canta en español, inglés, alemán, francés y así como también en farsi, para simbolizar los distintos muros divisores fallidos a lo largo de la historia. Siguiendo con la misma tradición, el álbum de Los Tigres del Norte incluye temas como: "Lágrimas de sangre", "Un Hombre De Ley", "Corazón Herido", "Los Mal Portados", "América Central" el cual es una cumbia rítmica dedicada a la gente de Centroamérica quienes siempre han mostrado sus brazos abiertos al grupo durante toda su carrera, finalmente "Cuidado Con la Mesera" que cuenta la historia de una mujer policía encubierta que trata de engañar fugitivos seduciéndolos. El álbum concluye con un mensaje de Los Tigres Del Norte, agradeciendo a sus fans en todo el mundo por los años de apoyo fiel. Así como recordándoles que sigan luchando a pesar de los problemas encontrados en sus vidas. El lanzamiento de "Detalles y Emociones" marcó el esperado regreso de los Tigres, tras el elogiado álbum de 2006, "Historias que Contar". Llevado al éxito gracias a la canción que alcanzara el número 1 en las listas de popularidad "Señor Locutor" el cual rinde tributo al creciente papel de los DJ's latinos en la radio realizando labor social al poner en contacto a distintas familias de la comunidad inmigrante. "Historias Que Contar" que contiene 14 corridos, vino a demostrar a todos que Los Tigres del Norte siguen en la cima como líderes en el género de Música Regional Mexicana, ganando el más reciente premio Grammy así como el Grammy latino al "Mejor álbum norteño”. Poco después del lanzamiento de "Historias Que Contar”, Los Tigres Del Norte demostraron nuevamente su papel como la principal "voz del pueblo" al encabezar musicalmente junto con su comunidad el "Gran boicot americano” –un día sin inmigrantes-, una reunión de protesta en el centro de Los Ángeles la más grande en todo el país. Los Tigres dieron gran apoyo a los millones de inmigrantes los cuales se manifestaron para mostrar su rol esencial tanto en la economía como en la cultura de los Estados Unidos.... See MoreSee Less

Downtown Brown, Pinky Doodle Poodle, Kiddoo & the Dude

Join Detroit natives DOWNTOWN BROWN for a punk-funk rock summer smash! Celebrating their 15th anniversary, their mutant style has caught the attention of all who they come into contact, including their manager, John “Norwood” Fisher of Fishbone. You either love them or hate them, and they like it that way. Joining them are Japan's (yes, that Japan) own alt-punk rock legends PINKY DOODLE POODLE. "Theatrical Funk Rockers" Kiddoo and the Dude kick things off. Doors at 9pm, $7 in advance, $9 day of show, 21+ More about Downtown Brown: Exploding from (the suburbs of) Detroit rock city in 2001, and venturing to the absolute bottom of the rabbit hole by 2015, Downtown Brown (DTB) has carved a unique saga over their 14-year existence. Jamming a mutant style that splices together punk, funk, metal, rock, and hip-hop, DTB is a band impossible to categorize. People tend to either love them, hate them, or are just generally puzzled by their often politically incorrect, outrageous, satiric lyrics coupled with genre-hopping technical skill. After nearly a decade of independently releasing media (4 full-length albums, a live album, and multiple dvds) and touring (100+ shows a year), Downtown Brown amassed a loyal following due to their infectious, energetic and ridiculously entertaining live show. They signed with DC-Jam Records in 2010 to release their 5th studio album ‘Grabbleton’s Beach’, a concept piece that had critics scratching their heads due to its musical A.D.D. and lyrics ranging from childish absurdity to tongue-in-cheek satire. All confusion aside, the album helped propel DTB’s popularity to new heights and remains a fan favorite to this day. In 2011, DTB caught the attention of Fishbone founding member Norwood Fisher, who soon after signed on to manage the band. Since Fisher’s involvement, the band has secured numerous endorsements, played multiple festivals, and toured with bands like The Adicts, Dead Kennedys, Peelander-Z, Fishbone, Psychostick, Andrew W.K., and even Insane Clown Posse (with whom they recorded a hilarious duet with in 2012). DTB recorded and released their 6th full-length album ‘Masterz of the Universe’ in 2013. Produced by Fisher, ‘Masterz’ is the band’s first attempt at a ‘serious’ rock record. Although some of the material echoes DTB’s previous recorded lunacy, most of the album is comprised of tightly focused compositions written from a sincere state of being. The lyrics chronicle band leader Neil P.'s internal battles; dishing with brutal honesty about depression, love, chemical dependency, the state of the world, and staying true to the band's artistic vision against all odds. In true DTB fashion, the music remains incredibly diverse, provocative, fun, and possesses undeniable pop sensibility. 2015 finds Downtown Brown thriving in a world full of easy-to-define, cookie-cutter music. Combining metal grooves, spastic funk, catchy riff rock, and all-over-the-place vocals, DTB’s broadly enjoyable sound and incomparable live show has captured the attention of a global audience. In the Summer of 2015, the band will release their 2nd live album and will continue to tour relentlessly, spreading their warped gospel to unsuspecting music fans across the land....

Phoenix Rising Benefit for CMA

August 26, 2016, 9:00pm - August 27, 2016, 2:00am

The phoenix rises from the ashes and is restored to its former glory! Join us for a benefit for the Council of Magickal Arts with special guests Darwin Prophet, Before the Devil Knows You're Dead, The Flametrick Subs, and DJ Edminister on Friday, August 26th at Elysium in ATX $7 cover, additional donations accepted. 9:00 Doors Open 10:00pm - Darwin Prophet 11:00pm - Before the Devil Knows You're Dead 12:00pm - The Flametrick Subs Darwin Prophet (of the former Velvet Hammer) joins us from Dallas, playing literary rock like a steampunk time traveler. Local band Before the Devil Knows You're Dead describe their sound as "where Flogging Molly, The Pogues, and Dropkick Murphys meet Social Distortion, X, and the Old 97's". The Flametrick Subs, an Austin institution since 1993, will assail your ears with their "rockabilly trainwreck" - full of energy and great for dancin'! The Council of Magickal Arts (CMA) is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization that promotes spirituality based on Pagan beliefs, and is open to people of all traditions who are interested in celebrating nature, spirit and community. Earlier this year, CMA suffered the misfortune of having several thousand dollars, about half our operating budget, embezzled by a former officer. This benefit is a fundraiser to recoup some of this loss; all proceeds will go directly to CMA's operating fund. This event will have vendors, readers, and items for sale/auction/raffle to benefit CMA. The grand prize of the raffle is two tickets to CMA's Samhain festival in October (a $150 value), on our land outside Smithville, so be sure and get your raffle tickets! CMA festivals happen twice per year and feature guest speakers, live bands, workshops, vendors, rituals, drumming, a meditation labyrinth and other dedicated sacred spaces, revel fires and more, all while camping on our 100+ acre wooded property.
