Now that it's almost October, the weather is finally livable in Texas — which is perfect, because festival season is just getting started here. The biggest of them all, Austin City Limits, kicks off the first of its back-to-back weekends tomorrow at Zilker Park.

With a lineup that boasts LCD Soundsystem, Mumford & Sons and M83 there are likely to be plenty of Houston residents who'd like to catch the action but can't make the trip.

Fortunately, we have a way to put you right there in the action all weekend with a live-stream of the festival. Red Bull TV's live-stream coverage of ACL starts at 2 p.m. CDT on Friday, September 30, with streaming continuing through Monday, October 3. Replays will happen each day, and you can watch on all devices, including mobile.

You may not get to join in the pleasures of Austin traffic or waiting in long lines for beer, but don't worry. It shouldn't detract from the experience too much — and won't subtract from your bank account, either.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
