CultureMap Austin -- Even in the Live Music Capital of the World we can use a spring-time excuse to get over the work week hump. Enter: The Wine Down. Returning this week, The Wine Down is ACL Live's answer to the mid-week slump with a focus on libations and music in an unbeatable outdoor setting.
Each Wednesday this spring, downtown dwellers and music-loving Austinites are invited to head to the ACL Live front porch for special live music performances, food from a local restaurant (rotating each week), and, of course, wine (presented by Rex Goliath Wines, happy hour wine specials will be available). The early evening celebrations run from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. each Wednesday and continue through June 5.
The Austin Convention and Visitors Bureau (ACVB) returns as a Wine Down partner this season, bringing with it a host of musicians that represent the diversity of Austin's sound. All featured artists playing the Wine Down are also highlighted on the ACVB's Austin Music Volume 12 compilation, to be released in late spring.
“We’re thrilled to be part of The Wine Down music series again this year and to showcase the bands on Austin Music Volume 12," said Amanda Garcia, Music Industry Manager at The Austin Convention and Visitors Bureau. “The compilation gives a glimpse at Austin’s diverse music scene and having ACL Live feature and celebrate local talent weekly is surely an event to look forward to."
