As the world continues to get back to normal, we are delighted to finally share some live events that get you out and about from your apartment in Austin, TX. At the same time welcome all the great talent in Austin back to stages throughout the city.
Moontower Comedy Series
The Paramount Theatre and other locations
The Moontower Comedy Festival brings some of the funniest, wittiest and oddest world-class comics to presented by the Paramount Theatre each year. This spring, national headliners, up-and-comers and local comedians will grace the stage for a hilarious spring series.
Springtime is one of the best times to enjoy entertainment under the stars. And thanks to the staff at ZACH Theater in Austin, you and your friends can sit back and be entertained throughout the season with their “Songs Under the Stars” performances – in a safe and socially distant atmosphere. As their website notes:
The socially distanced outdoor series will feature five concerts over eight weekends, running Thursdays through Sundays each week. Enjoy live performances, esteemed performers and an outdoor bar surrounded by the Austin skyline.
You can reserve your group's pod(s) in various locations throughout the Plaza, including the steps that lead up to the stage. Each pod holds 2 – 6 people, including children.
Below you will find the concert descriptions from their website at zachtheater.com about all the concerts coming your way.
