Happy rocking holidays: Black Friday ticket deals in Austin
'Tis the season to share a heavy metal tribute to Pink Floyd with your friends and loved ones, am I right, Austin?
Local concert juggernaut, C3 presents is running a holiday sale on select shows through Monday, Nov. 26 at 11:59 p.m. and tickets to Doom Side of the Moon, the Floyd project from local metal titans, the Sword, at Emo's on Nov. 30 are knocked down to $13.50 while supplies last.
Other shows on the C3 sale list include Kurt Vile at ACL Live on Dec. 6 (buy one balcony ticket, get one free), the Oh Hellos' Christmas Extravaganza at Emo's on Dec. 7 (buy one ticket, get one free) and Neko Case at Bass Concert Hall in February (25% off upper balcony tickets). That last one sounds like a lovely holiday gift for the literate indie pop fan on your list.
If you're looking for holiday cheer to share with your friends and family, ACL Live is running a $10 off Black Friday deal on all their holiday shows, including Brian Wilson presents "The Christmas Album" Live and a Merry-achi Christmas with Mariachi Sol De México De Jose Hernandez. Those deals expire when the clock strikes midnight on Black Friday.
Also worth noting, Black Friday has evolved into the fall version of Record Store Day, with many artists putting out special limited edition releases for the event. Here's a list of independent record stores in Austin who are participating.
