Mobley, Kalu & the Electric Joint, Alesia Lani and recent Austin360 Artist of the Month, Night Glitter will also perform.

Presented by local NPR affiliate KUTX 98.9 FM, the event is an afternoon show that will take place on the downtown hotel’s lawn. The concert’s theme is “I Want My All ATX,” a nod to the golden age of MTV. It doubles as a release party for this year’s All ATX compilation CD, which features local artists exploring the songs of that era. Sales from the compilation benefit local music non-profits the Health Alliance for Austin Musicians, the SIMS Foundation, Black Fret and the Austin Music Foundation.

It will also be the grand opening of a new restaurant, lounge and deck at the Four Seasons.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m., Wednesday, Sept. 19, at KUTX.org. Prices range from $20 for general admission on the lawn, to $100 for the Restaurant Terrace, to $200 for the Lounge Deck. Doors open at 1:30 p.m. and the show starts at 2 p.m.
