Top Weekend Events 09/16 – 09/18

Welcome to your Wednesday top weekend events post!  This list is absolutely dominated by college football games.  A couple other things snuck in there, but for the most part, NCAA Football games are what’s drawing the fan’s eye these days.

The top event for this weekend, however, is not football, but the Austin City Limits Festival.  The Austin City Limits originally started as a live celebration of Texas music recorded American Public television music program by the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS).   It later evolved into the Austin City Limits Music Festival featuring regional, national and international artists with a wide range of musical styles including jazz, alt. rock, alt. country, folk and jam band.  The ACL Festival is an annual three-day festival with over 130 acts!  Over 70,000 fans attend each day.   Some of the big names for this year include Coldplay, Sara Bareilles, Cold War Kids, Foster the People, Kanye West,  Young the Giant, Stevie Wonder, My Morning Jacket, Alison Krauss, Social Distortion, Randy Newman, Airborne Toxic Event and Arcade Fire.  Not a bad line-up!

The Red Sox also make another appearance after a long absence.  They’ll be taking on the Tampa Bay Rays.  The Red Sox are expected to with the AL Wild Card this year.

Outside of that, it’s football, football, football!  The top NCAA Football game is the Florida State Seminoles versus the Oklahoma Sooners.  These two teams are two of the most talked about and followed programs in the history of the game.  This will be their first face-off in nearly a decade.  This game could send FSU back into the national spot light it so famously controlled or it could prove the Landry Jones was just what Oklahoma needed to send them to the National Championship.   While Oklahoma seemed to struggle a bit with their first game win against Utah State, FSU easily dominated Samford with a 59-6 win, a nice feat for Coach Jimbo Fisher’s debut.  This should be a very exciting game!

Top Weekend Events – July 1st – 4th

Ultimate Fighting ChampionshipWell, it’s Wednesday again.  This is the big 4th of July weekend and people for sure want to get out and see some baseball!  They have a number of excellent games to go see.

While baseball games, particularly on the 4th, are reigning supreme on the list, some other “manly” events are of note.  Taking top placement of events going on this weekend is the mixed martial arts event held by the Ultimate Fighting Championship in Vegas.  Originally, the event was set to be a rematch between B.J. Penn and Jon Fitch, but, given the nature of the sport, both competitors had to bow out due to injuries.    This started a whole ripple of injuries replacements from the event, including Evan Dunham, Jason Miller, and Cub Swanson.  The main event, Bantamweight Championship is between Dominick Cruz and Urijah Faber.  UFC 132 will broadcast it’s two preliminary fights live on Spike TV and the remaining fights will be streamed on Facebook.  How’s that for using social media?

The Coke Zero 400 Race is a 160 lap, 400 mile NASCAR Sprint Series stock car race at the Daytona International Speedway.  This particular race has been around since 1959 and usually held around 4th of July, and has held other names such as the Firecracker 250, Firecracker 400, Pepsi Firecracker 400 and Pepsi 400.  This year’s event will again be televised on TNT.

As for your top weekend concerts, the men of country seem to hold their fan’s attention.  Toby Keith will be playing at the Henry Maier Festival Park at Summerfest in Milwaukee, WI.  Mr. Keith with special guest Eric Church are the headliners for the day, but other notable (free with admission!) acts include; Girl Talk, Los Lonely Boys, Los Lobos, Anberlin, Third Eye Blind, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus an Taj Mahal.  Kenny Chesney is the other man of the weekend with his show in Pittsburgh.  There’s something about country music, fireworks, a cold beer and celebrating the 4th, isn’t there?

So, all in all, people are looking for good old fashioned events that remind folks about our American pastimes; music, baseball and having a good time.
