Come One, Come All! Experience the Thrills & Sounds of Austin, Texas through the music and lifestyle of Full Service
We’ve been visiting your homes for years; now come experience ours!
The FULL SERVICE CIRCUS is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to join Full Service for amazing feats of musical, athletic and culinary adventure in Austin, Texas. This first-annual festival is about inviting YOU, FS “FanSaws” from around the country to clown around with FS in our hometown. It’s an invitation to fully immerse yourselves in our music and lifestyle and get the ultimate insider’s tour of Austin. In addition to witnessing three death-defying FS shows, Circus-goers will embark on adventures around Austin, visit the hotspots, and get a taste of the band’s favorite thrills around the Texas capital, with Hoag, Bonesaw, Smell and Sunny as your ringmasters.
(With under two weeks to go, watch this video to hear the new single and to get pumped for the Circus!)
You’ll take in three Full Service shows – one at the HQ (acoustic – limit 300 people); one public show at Antone’s (the legendary ATX venue, recently relocated and renovated. 600 capacity), and a Sunday brunch show at Zilker Park. You’ll watch in wonder a screening of the movie “TAKEOVER!” and enjoy a caravan of “Full Service-y” events at renowned places like Zilker Park, Barton Springs Pool, 6th St., and much more.
Vitali and Bonesaw have lunch and discuss the Antone’s show!
Tickets went on sale December 17th with a live-broadcast “Telethon and Variety Show” – think the Muppet Show – hosted by Bonesaw and “Vitali” the puppet mascot of the Circus (Hoag is the puppeteer) and crossed over the 220 tickets sold mark during the second telethon (March 11th). Bonesaw and Vitali the Monster Puppet explain the telethons:
Austin is famous for its lip-smackin’ cuisine, and there will be local food and beer sponsors such as Austin’s Pizza and Wahoo’s Tacos providing the grub and grog with a “$1-For-Everything” deal for the most of the events. That means $1 pizza slices, $1 tacos, $1 beers, etc. Also expect beer from Austin Beerworks as well as drinks from local companies White Hat Rum and Deep Eddy Vodka.
Some of the other events are sure to include swimming at Barton Springs Pool, yoga with Bonesaw and Sunny with a local yoga instructor at the park; a 6th Street Pub Crawl with Hoag, Smell and Sunny; sports and games at Zilker Park (are you Red Team or Blue Team?); performances by other Austin bands; a visit to downtown’s Pecan St. Festival; an official post-party Saturday on the hip Rainey St. and much more!
STEEP hotel discounts have already been negotiated with the Wyndham Garden Inn ($99 / night for up to 4 people) and Baymont Inn and Suites ($70 / night), both within 1-2 miles of FS-HQ!
HOW TO GET TICKETS: There are less than 15 tickets left to the full-weekend of events but there are plenty of tickets to the single-show Friday May 3rd @ Antone’s. Get either ticket here.
