These things happen. A big-name act is booked for a major festival appearance in Austin, and then they show up in the weirdest places. As the second weekend of Austin City Limits Music Festival appears in the headlights, it seems the Killers are carrying on the tradition.

According to social media reports, the Las Vegas rockers have set up on the roof of a building in downtown Austin on Thursday.


Erin Pettus, who works at Industrious in the Indeed building at Fifth and Colorado streets, posted a picture of the band’s stage set-up on the roof of ad agency McGarrah Jessee at Sixth and Colorado streets.

The chatter on Reddit is that it’s for a private event. We’ve reached out the Killers’ representatives and will update if we know more.
