Trombone Shorty Brings ACL Fest To Texas Football

The first weekend of this year’s Austin City Limits Music Festival is well underway in Austin’s Zilker Park, which is located just across the river from Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium where the University of Texas Football Team was taking on Baylor. Those attending the game were treated to a taste of the ACL Fest when a special collaborative performance between Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue and The University of Texas Longhorn Band was broadcast during the third quarter.

Shorty and his band tackled the University Of Texas Fight Song with the help of members of the Longhorn Band. Even the University of Texas mascot got in on the act and at the end of the tune, ACL Fest performers such as Capital Cities, Rebelution and Skrillex capped it off with chants of “Hook ‘Em Horns!” Take a look at how it went down:

Austin City Limits Music Festival’s first weekend comes to a close tomorrow with performances from the likes of Lettuce, Spoon, Chromeo, The Replacements and Pearl Jam.
