From marching in honor of MLK Jr. to Pink Floyd laser shows, here's the scoop on what's happening this week.
Martin Luther King Jr. March and Festival
Commemorate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with this longstanding Austin tradition. After kicking off with a short speaker series at the MLK statue on the east side of the UT campus, the march will travel two miles to Huston-Tillotson University’s festival commemorating the late civil rights leader. In addition to live music performances and food from local vendors, the Central Texas Food Bank will also be on hand gathering donations.

The Pink Floyd Laser Spectacular
Celebrate 50 years of Pink Floyd with an explosive laser show that would bring the psych rock legends to tears. Hosted at ACL Live, the concert promises to be both a visual and auditory spectacle, pairing stunning laser lights and high definition videos with Pink Floyd’s original master recordings.
