Blues on the Green is Austin’s longest running FREE music series. Blues on the Green veterans know the drill, but for first time attendees here is the rundown: You can bring in two factory sealed water bottles, blankets, chairs and your dog (must be on a leash at all times). The number one piece of advice I would say, is ride your bike /carpool, uber, lyft, take the bus or walk if you can. Parking and traffic around Zilker tonight can cause quite the headache.

Tonight is the LAST Blues on the Green of the Season. It really is a rite of passage for living in this great city.

Blues on the Green lovers  — Text “Blues” to 29217 to join the Blues on the Green alert club and get access to exclusive information and contests.

2015 Line-Up:
August 12 – Riders Against The Storm, Shakey Graves

Admission: Free

Music Starts: 8pm

Austin Footwear Labs (AFL) is a local sustainability-focused company that keeps tires out of landfills by producing high-quality, eco-friendly footwear. Who says you can’t go green and look good at the same time? AFL has found a way to promote and practice sustainability without sacrificing on looks. You may be wondering, just how does AFL do this? Well the answer is technology!

Austin Footwear Labs uses APX®, recycled rubber compound made from scrap tires through a process that transforms the rubber into a new virgin rubber compound substitute. This makes it possible to make a high quality and durable shoe that also promotes conscious living. The sandal outsoles are made of 50% recycled rubber from scrap tires that would have ended up in a landfill or burned!

The first line of sandals consists of two styles each for men (colors available: Red River, Bat Black, Burnt Orange and Espresso) and women (colors available: Purple Haze, Turquoise, Sand and Onyx). The sandals are uniquely Austin, featuring a laser etched 1921 map of Austin on select sandal straps and a logo that resembles a bat in reference to the city’s largest urban bat population! AFL is hosting their launch party right here in Austin, TX on Tuesday, August 18th! The launch party will be co-hosted by Bat Conservation International (BCI) and will take place at Banger’s Sausage House & Beer Garden, located at 79 Rainey Street. Bring the family and your furry friends out to celebrate the launch of a local Austin company that is saving the Earth one pair at a time!
