You may be aware that Austin City Limits Festival is this weekend, at Zilker Park, in Austin, TX. The lineup is pretty impressive, and around 200,000 people will be there to keep you company. Of course you and the other 199K, or so, coughed up $100 for the privilege.

Didn't have the $100? Unemployed? House burned down this month? There are options. Including:

The second annual Ditch the Fest Fest, which goes all day Saturday, produced by Lucy the Poodle Productions, will donate most proceeds to help victims of the recent Texas wild fires.

The Fest also features a number of venues: Club DeVille (900 Red River), Cheer Up Charlie's (1104 E. 6th St.), The Scoot Inn (1308 E. 4th) Red 7 (611 E. 7th St.), and Beauty Bar (617 E. 7th St.).

In addition to music, there's talk of free beer provided by Bird's Barbershop, performance art, vegan snacks galore and $5 gets you entry to all five venues, or (if your shift at Seven Eleven conflicts) you can pay a $2 cover fee at each stop you make. 

With the rain we're getting right now, great entertainment, temperatures below 100 degrees, a gate fee below $10, AND FREE BEER -- you know there's a God! Go celebrate the day!
