“Austin City Limits” Is Letting You Watch Their Archives While Sheltering in Place
The program has made public forty episodes from the past three seasons and announced encore performances.
With everyone under quarantine, Austin City Limits has stepped up with some prime content to help while away the hours spent sheltering in place.
ACL producers have pulled forty episodes from the last three seasons of the show to stream for free, including LCD Soundsystem, The Raconteurs, Rosalia, Vampire Weekend, Cage the Elephant, Mitski, and Billie Eilish. Check out the episodes here.
This new vault of online content arrives a week after ACL streamed their March 20 Stand with Austin benefit, which raised money for the music and service industry workers being hit by fallout from COVID-19, including the cancellation of SXSW 2020. Adding to the streamable clips, they’ve also uploaded Austinite Britt Daniel’s work-from-home live performance of Spoon’s “The Agony of Laffitte” from this session, which you can take a look at below.
ACL is also set to offer up encore performances on PBS to fill in for the current season now that live shows are currently on hold, kicking off on March 28 with LCD Soundsystem. See the full TV schedule below.
