Item Description

Reminiscent of fireflies glowing against a night sky, twinkling city lights dot the Texas Hill Country landscape in the exterior panels of ACL Live?s iconic backdrop.

Dimensions: 8' wide x 4' tall. Framing will increase the size slightly.

Own a piece of music history! As Austin PBS prepares our final good-bye to Studio 6A, a piece of music history, our iconic backdrop, is being carefully dismantled and made available for auction. Bid on your favorite panel of the legendary backdrop seen in every episode from Season 7 ? 36. Built in 1981, the ACL Skyline made its debut taping and television appearance in season 7 episode 1 with Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell. The backdrop evokes the simplicity and intimacy that characterized Studio 6A performances. Now you can bring the magic of Studio 6A home with you with the backdrop that helped launch Austin?s reputation as the Live Music Capital of The World and set the stage for the longest-running music show in the history of television.

Akin to owning a bit of Austin?s soul, the possibilities are endless with these iconic Austin City Limits artifacts which can be hung in your home or office, helping preserve the memory of the studio and its unmatched anthology of musicians.

Panels will be professionally framed and expertly rewired for easy plug in, ensuring the backdrop will be seen in all its glory in your home or office. Additionally, every panel will come with a certificate of authenticity.  KLRU will coordinate with auction winners for installation of the panels in their desired location. Winners will be responsible for shipping and installation if outside of the Austin, Texas metropolitan area.
