Sabrina Ellis does rock and roll like no other. She was originally the electrifying front woman for garage punk Austin band, A Giant Dog. Sweet Spirit allows her to explore her country, soul and pop influences at length, backed by a 9-piece band.

This is music to slow dance with your honey to. Molly’s husky voice and 60’s-influenced guitar will transport you to another time. Her second album, First Flower, drops the day before her ACL performance.

Friday 10/5 3:45pm & Friday 10/12 3:45pm Tito’s Handmade Vodka Stage
This Austin band says they are originally from Saturn. Even if that might be a slight exaggeration, you’ll find their performance out of this world. A performance that can’t be described, only experienced. Prepare to have a big old psychedelic freak out, man!

SaulPaul
