Happy October! It finally feels like Fall, and we've got a great list of music/entertainment events to look forward to this month:
Austin City Limits
, Oct. 4-6, 11-13 Austin, TX
For the first time, ACL is expanding into a second weekend, so that means more tickets available for us. Headliners are Kings of Leon, The Cure, Muse, and Depeche Mode, with many more talented bands performing. If you haven't already bought your tickets, they're still selling but won't be for long - so get yours here
, Oct. 12 Brooklyn, NY
Music, beer, and food. What could be better? With over 100 craft brews, Brooklyn Pour is going to be one crazy day in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. Hosted by The Village Voice, this event is in its third year and is happening at Skylight One Hanson, what used to be an old bank and is now a landmark referred to as an "art-deco masterpiece," and it's the second tallest building in Brooklyn. The majority of beers will come from breweries in the tri-state area, so if that's where you live you can find your signature seasonal faves! With a $50 general admission ticket you can sample 'em all, and will no doubt have a happy Saturday. Tix
