Following Tuesday’s announcement of an August taping featuring hometown hero Gary Clark Jr., today the venerable TV show “Austin City Limits” rolled out the first taping to coincide with its namesake festival, an Oct. 2 show with Alabama Shakes.

The taping comes a night before the group’s Oct. 3 ACL Fest date. The performance will be the group’s third on the show, following its debut in 2012 and an appearance as part of the “Austin City Limits” 40th anniversary celebration.

As always, details on the free ticket drop will be released a week or so before the show via the ACL website and the show’s social media accounts.
