Art City Austin, which takes over Cesar Chavez Street between Guadalupe and Lamar streets April 12-13, bills itself as "Austin’s Iconic Fine Arts Festival," but there’s also a pretty healthy dose of live local music at the event both days.
Saturday’s lineup features Mobley at 12:30 p.m., Grace London at 2 p.m., Danny Malone at 3:30 p.m., Erin Ivey at 5 p.m. and Nakia at 6:30 p.m.
On Sunday, catch Possessed by Paul James at 11:30 a.m., Emily Bell at 1 p.m., the Rocketboys at 2:30 p.m. and Elizabeth McQueen at 4 p.m.
Tickets are $12 Saturday, $10 Sunday or $15 for both days, with free admission for children under 12 and half-price discounts for bike riders and Capital Metro card holders. Entrances to the festival are at both the Guadalupe and Lamar ends of Cesar Chavez. Full details are at the Art Alliance Austin website.
