KLRU-TV, Austin PBS, the home of Austin City Limits opens its doors each Friday at 10:30 a.m. for tours of the famed soundstage.   Admission is free. Bring a camera and have your picture taken on the stage. The tour schedule varies on holidays, so please call ahead. KLRU is located on the University of Texas campus at the intersection of Dean Keeton and Guadalupe (can this be a link to:

Also, on a completely unrelated (but important!) sidenote, I saw Of Montreal play at Fiesta Gardens last night. Though the venue was not very well organized (it took FOREVER to get inside, and the exit was really small so it took a while to get out. . .fire hazard??) the band was TREMENDOUS. Their live show is super visual and fun. If you love to dance, check out Of Montreal immediately, particularly my favorite songs:  “So Begins Our Alabee” and “Wraith Pinned To The Mist and Other Games,” both off of The Sunlandic Twins album.
