It’s that time again. You’ve got another week under your heels, a weekend of endless possibilities ahead of you. You deserve to kick back, relax and enjoy. Let TuneIn guide the way.
If you’re not lucky enough to be cooling those heels in Zilker Park in Austin, Texas this weekend for the Austin City Limits Festival, you can still take the festival with you wherever you go. Our friends at KGSR will be broadcasting exclusively live from backstage and getting many of the great bands coming through the festival to sit down, chat and maybe even play a couple songs live on the air. Everybody from Aloe Blacc to Fitz & The Tantrums, Belle Brigade to Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. and many more will be along, so check out KGSR all weekend long for all the best of the ACL Fest.
One last reminder as we pack up for the weekend, you have until tonight to enter our super fantastic contest with KEXP to get flown away to CMJ Music Marathon in New York this October. $35 or more gets you in on the action. Don’t wait, I want to party with you at the Ace in October!
Sports are heating up as well, all over the world. Here in the US, college and pro football seasons are well underway with some marquee matchups dotting the schedule this weekend. In the college ranks, #1 Oklahoma takes a trip down to Tallahassee to challenge #5 Florida State is one of the best early season games in recent memory. Check out Sooner and Seminole flagships throughout the day tomorrow for all the action leading up to kickoff. Meanwhile in the Pro ranks, fresh off their explosive performance in Miami last Monday, Tom Brady and the Patriots open their home schedule against their cross-country rivals in Philip Rivers and the San Diego Chargers. Patriots.com Radio is your best resource for the leadup to the game at The Razor in Foxborough on Sunday afternoon. (Okay, Charger fans. You can listen to ESPN 710 up in LA to get ready – if you REALLY want to…) And finally, halfway around the world, one of the most anticipated kickoffs in the Rugby World Cup is this weekend’s featured TuneIn Up All Night scrumdown with Australia taking on Ireland. TuneIn with Radio Sport NZ from 4am ET/1am PT (right after the Springboks no doubt dispatch of Fiji).
However you spend your weekend, we hope you spend it with TuneIn. Did we miss something you’ll have blasting (maybe on your awesome Jambox – which are totally awesome, by the way) while tending the grill this weekend? Let us know and join the conversation on Facebook and Twitter.
