    Aside from the live tunes, there are a bunch of other UO Live in Austin happenings. 

    Crosley will be hanging in the UO Men’s shop March 16th through March 19th from 2-6 p.m. for custom record cutting. Hop in our pop-up studio, sing your heart out and walkway with a pressed vinyl of the performance. Pretty sweet, right?

    Speaking of singing your heart out, do it in front of a live audience at Karaoke in the Backlot, presented by Fujifilm. It happens twice during UO Live in Austin: 7:30 p.m.-9 p.m. on Wednesday, March 16th, and 6:30 p.m.-8 p.m. on Saturday, March 19th. Come both nights, there's plenty of belting to be done. 

    Additionally, Austin’s own Prototype Vintage Design will host a pop-up shop from 12 -8 p.m. on March 19th selling vintage tees, denim and more.

    And because food is very important, Pizzeria Vetri, a full-service pizzeria serving Neapolitan pizza, salads, desserts, craft beer and wine, and Symon’s Burger Joint, specializing in burgers, hot links, milkshakes, fries, beer and wine, will satiate any hunger pains. Local food trucks like East Side King, Little Lucy’s Donuts and Lucky Lab Coffee will be lined up outside the backlot all week long.

    Last thing! We've got a surprise for you. We’re teaming up with Calvin Klein to present a special live event in a secret location on Thursday, March 17th from 6 p.m.-12 a.m. featuring surprise live performers. We can’t wait to tell you who, but since we have to, follow along with @urbanoutfittersmusic for more updates.
