If music in the park isn’t your thing, but you still want to get in on that Austin City Limits Festival action, then warm up those clicking fingers. ACL Fest just announced almost 40 late night shows.
Highlights include a series of Stubb’s shows with Sylvan Esso, the National and St. Vincent. The Red River amphitheater will also host a big electronic music bash featuring Odesza, Jai Wolf and Evan Giia.

The folks who started a Facebook group to protest ’90s singer, Lisa Loeb’s low billing on the festival lineup (she’s playing a kids set on the Austin Kiddie Limits stage) will be happy to discover that they can “Give Lisa Loeb the Crowd She Deserves” when she plays the Scoot Inn on Oct. 8 with Dizzy. Fellow ’90s rockers the Breeders will also play the Scoot, as will Canadian dream pop act Alvvays and indie rockers X Ambassadors.
Emo’s also has a solid set of bookings that include Puerto Rican rapper Residente, British soul collective Jungle (with Rhye) and Manchester Orchestra. Meanwhile the Mohawk hosts Parquet Courts, Amen Dunes and Arizona. NYC-based rockers BigThief will also play the Mohawk with local powerhouse, Sweet Spirit.
Finally, the best ACL late shows are often the small ones. We predict the Oct. 5 Antone’s show with Japanese Breakfast and Molly Burch will be one of the first to sell out.
