Radio station 93.3 KGSR FM is hosting two morning live broadcasts at Threadgill’s during the first weekend of ACL Fest. The broadcasts kick off bright and early at 8 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 3 with a performance from anthemic indietronica act Night Terrors of 1927. The Friday morning broadcast, which includes a combination of performances and artist interviews, also features an appearance from Jack Antonoff’s Fun. side project Bleachers who scored one of summer 2014’s feel-good hits with “I Wanna Get Better.” Paolo Nutini, Robert Ellis, Arum Rae and James Bay will also play the Friday morning broadcast.

On Saturday, Oct. 4 earlybirds will be treated to a performance by excellent Norwegian R&B artist Bernhoft at 8 a.m. Anarchic New Orleans blues rocker, Benjamin Booker, buzzy Brooklyn indie pop outfit Lucius and Boston band Lake Street Drive, who play a countrified version of jazzy soul are also scheduled to perform. Austin bands Saints of Valory and The Nightowls round out the Saturday bill.

A $5 donation to HAAM buys you admission to each day of the morning broadcasts and the first 100 people to arrive will receive a free breakfast taco. Schedule and more information.
