Austin City Limits will livestream the highly-anticipated taping with Grammy-winning songwriter, vocalist and virtuoso guitarist Gary Clark Jr. on Monday, August 24, 8pm CT/9pm ET. The taping will webcast in its entirety directly from ACL's stage via the program's YouTube Channel and the broadcast episode will air during ACL's upcoming Season 41, which premieres in October on PBS stations.
Austin's shining star Gary Clark Jr. arrives on ACL's stage for his second headline performance at the top of his game and in advance of his homegrown new record The Story of Sonny Boy Slim, set for release on Sept. 11, on Warner Bros. Records. Self-produced at Austin's Arlyn Studios, Clark's latest LP reflects his singular visionary landscape as an ever-evolving artist. Relying on the simple tools of his trade - voice, guitar, rhythm and song - Clark firmly establishes himself as a sonic expressionist who has absorbed classic forms of the past while forging his own path.
Clark Jr. has a long history with ACL, going back to his debut in Season 33 as part of the Tribute to Bluesman Jimmy Reed, through his Season 38 solo episode, a 2014 show-stopping appearance as part of ACL's 40th anniversary celebration and a cameo with the Foo Fighters that same year.
