Ditch the Fest 3 @ 29th Street Ballroom 10/12 @ 10/13/2012
GayCL @ Cheer Up Charlies 10/14 @ 10/13/2012

There's rarely a shortage of things to do in Austin come festival time, and this weekend during ACL is no exception. For those who want something different from the Zilker Park fare, Ditch the Fest 3 is happening on Friday (10/12) and Saturday (10/13) at The 29th Street Ballroom and The Spiderhouse Cafe.

There's also GayCL over at Cheer up Charlies on 10/14, a Rock The Vote party (RSVP) over at The American Legion on 10/12, and both KGSR and KUT will have special events outside of that-other-thing going on.

Yet another option for Friday is visiting Holy Mountain, which is the new face of the former Beauty Bar on 7th Street. They'll be having an after-party there with Learning Secrets and Omar S (tickets are $10, but you can splurge and get a "VIP Booze Buffet Pass" for $25!).

This is hardly all that is going on this weekend (Transmission Free shows too), so if you're not rocking at ACL and can't find something to do - you're just not trying. :)

Check out more details from Ditch The Fest 3 and GayCL below.
