Concert History

This is a listing of every known ACWE concert. All concerts listed are based on documented evidence of some kind. Sometimes the document was a list of planned concerts, so it is possible some of those didn't actually happen. It is fairly certain ACWE has played every Zilker Tree Lighting since 1977. Help us fill in missing information!
