October 11–October 14, 2012 :: Austin, TX
The Third Annual Austin Corn Lover's Fiesta—a little event referred to as "ACL"—is not to be confused with any similarly scheduled or acronymed music festivals. This ACL celebrates LOCAL and REGIONAL music, camaraderie and independence. No big names, big ticket prices, or overwhelming crowds.
With the recent closings of three of last year's venues (Lovejoy's, Trophy's, and The Scoot Inn) it seems more important than ever to retrench and make our ongoing stand against hipsters, misguided city master planning, limp-wristed gentrification (meaning people who move to the downtown of "The Live Music Capitol Of The World" and expect to live in a sound free environment, not homosexuals), and douchery in general.
The talent isn't famous. There are no sponsors other than Saustex and few good folks who cross-promote. You probably won't even catch a live feed on CNN. So what? This ACL still rocks.
