Austin's Moontower Festival (no relation to Houston's wiener-slinging bunch) comes into its second year boasting a massive lineup. In a city chock-full of festivals, it looks to be one of the coolest.

Set for Wednesday, April 24, through Saturday, April 27, the lineup this year is stacked with big names old and young, with plenty of room for upstarts to be seen in front of a new audience, at venues scattered all over Austin.

The Moontower people are boasting a schedule that includes more than 90 comics spread out over 80 performances for four days at 11 venues. It's like a more organized SXSW, without the giant Doritos machine, Japanese people and amateur drinking.

Because comics are professional drunks, you see.

If you are a SXSW regular, the venues will be familiar to you, spread out from Sixth to Eighth Streets. Badges start out at $129 and can run up to $599 if you want to mix and mingle with the comics and get preferred entry to shows. The mid-level badges are sold out.

Here is the Moontower schedule from the official Web site. You can check out the bountiful under cards and podcasts here.
