Dive Bars, BBQ & Best Espresso: Okkervil River's Guide to Austin

FUSE TV - Dive Bars, BBQ & Best Espresso: Okkervil River's Guide to Austin

After 11 successful (but crowded) years, Austin City Limits Music Festival expanded to two weekends in 2013. Featuring headliners Depeche Mode, the Cure, Muse and Kings of Leon, ACL 2013 hits Zilker Park October 4-6 and 11-13.

With the Texas fest's first weekend just days away, Fuse spoke to guitarist Lauren Gurgiolo of Austin's own Okkervil River—who are playing both weekends behind their new album The Silver Gymnasium—to get her recommendations on getting the most out of one of America's best cities. 

A resident since 1997, Gurgiolo gave us her take on how Austin has changed over the years (Hint: It's not Richard Linklater's Slacker anymore) and let us know which restaurants and bars still carry the vintage Austin vibe. And most importantly, Gurgiolo kindly informed us where to get the best barbeque and finest coffee in town. Read her picks below, check out our survival guide to the fest and grab tickets to weekend 2 of ACL 2013 while they're still available.
