    A Flock of Seagulls headline Lost '80s Live at Humphreys on Saturday, Aug. 17.

    We're in peak season for local festivals, so expect to see a ton of local community spaces activated all the way through Oktoberfests. If you're broke or on a budget, hop on a bus and find one of these fun fests. By evening, you've got music choices like Lost '80s Live at Humphreys or the Bomboras at the Casbah. Chloe Lou & the Liddells are the featured band at Bird Park in North Park, and the homies will be hanging with the Sleepwalkers at Soda Bar. Country fans will flock to Clint Black at the new outdoor space at Viejas Casino in Alpine, and Memphis rapper Xavier Wulf plays Soma. Just a side note: We know there are at least two Wild Child bands out there, and the Austin one plays original indie music, but tonight's Wild Child show at Belly Up is the one that's been around for ages playing a tribute to Jim Morrison and the Doors. I've known at least a handful of people who've gone to see one expecting the other, so just a little point worth clarifying. Happy Saturday night!
