Weekly Event Round Up

Austin:

Austin City Limits Music Festival starts this Friday, Saturday and Sunday (October 4th – October 6th). This year ACL will be for two consecutive weeks, meaning that next Friday, Saturday and Sunday (October 11th – 13th) the festival will continue. Each year, the festival brings more than 150 acts from all over the world to play rock, indie, country, folk and electronic music over eight stages. We can’t wait for ACL to start and we have compiled a list of bands that you should check out if you are going to be attending this year!

Day 1: 1) Thao & the Get Down Stay Down – Folksy Rock music that is lyrically superb. 2) Smith Westerns – Beach Style Rock with a peaceful and mellow vibe.  3) Arctic Monkeys – British Rock & Roll Band who made their start in the mid 00’s. 4) Muse – If you want to really rock out, you have to check out this Rock & Roll band. They have become true rock legends.
Day 2: 1) Electric Guest – New band that has Soul, Rock and Pop influences. 2) Passion Pit – Indie Pop band whose unique combination of upbeat tunes and deep lyrics make them a must-see.  3) The Cure – 80’s rock fans unite! The Cure is Sikara & Co’s top pick of the weekend. Who doesn’t want to hear Friday I’m In Love live?!
Day 3: 1) Kodaline – Irish alternative rock quartet. They have beautiful melodies and their music plays on your heartstrings. 2) Tame Impala – 60’s influenced Rock band. It’s like watching The Beatles resurrected. 3) Lionel Richie – What better way to end ACL than jamming to All Night Long?

Also, ACL is a great time to show off your style. You know that you will be snapping and Instagramming a bunch of photos of you and your friends. Sikara & Co. is here to keep you looking stylish and trendy – check out our ACL inspired outfit below.

Although this event is centered around food, who says you can’t be stylish while you’re eating? Sikara & Co. has put together an earth toned outfit that we think is perfect for going to this festival.
