Austin City Limits is not just a music festival, it’s also TV show. Pearl Jam are taping their one hour episode of Public Broadcasting Service show appropriately named Austin City Limits on October 3rd.  According to the Austin360 blog:

The day before they headline the Austin City Limits Music Festival, Pearl Jam will tape an episode of the namesake TV show. With a capacity of 320, it looks to be the toughest ticket for an “ACL” taping since Coldplay in 2005. Show producer Terry Lickona said to check the www.austincitylimits.org closer to showtime for ticket giveaway info.

“I sure wish the new studio was ready for Pearl Jam,” Lickona said, referring to the 2,750-capacity venue being built on West Second Street across from City Hall. “We’d still have to turn away people, but not quite as many.” Construction of the $40 million Austin City Limits Theater is expected to be completed in October 2010.

Also added to the coming 35th season of ACL are Allen Toussaint, who’ll tape his ACL debut June 30, and M. Ward Aug. 5. Again, check the web site for ticket details.
