Pink Tag Partner of the Month- Wild About Music


To welcome in the holiday season, AO Tours will begin posting about a Pink Tag Partner of the Month to highlight businesses in the Austin area. To learn more about all our Pink Tag Partners and the discounts they offer when you use your AO Tours Pink Tag, see the options on our Pink Tag Partner Program page. Remember to take advantage of the great local deals you have access to after you take an AO Tour through the heart of Austin and the scenic Texas Hill Country.

This November, we invite our guests to celebrate the live music capital of the world by visiting Wild About Music, one of our tightest partners. In a city full of world famous music traditions like the Austin City Limits and South by Southwest music festivals, you can find the world’s first art and gift gallery dedicated to the celebration of music. Wild About Music is owned by some of Austin’s most successful local businesspeople, Fred Schmidt and Shelley Meyer, who also own the iconic stores Austin Rocks Texas and Toy Joy.

Wild About Music offers an eclectic mix of merchandise, including t-shirts, souvenirs, and even AO Tour tickets! Wild About Music’s variety can meet all your musical gift needs. You can come check out the art featuring rock legends and Austin sights, try out some new guitars, or take home a t-shirt celebrating your favorite band to remember your visit. Get a feel for the city in this classic Austin business, locally owned and managed in support of our local economy. The helpful staff is always available to answer questions about the merchandise and the music scene in Austin. Wild About Music does everything it can to Keep Austin Weird!

As part of our Pink Tag Partner Program, Wild About Music offers AO Tour guests great deals. If you buy your AO Tour ticket in store, you will receive a discounted ticket price of $21 and a 10% discount on all items in the store, excluding art work. Any AO Tour guest can bring in his or her Pink Tag after taking the tour to receive a free guitar pick, regardless of how or where the ticket was purchased.

Wild About Music is the only member of our Pink Tag Partner Program that also serves as one of our tour departure locations. Our tours pick up directly from Wild About Music at least three times every day. You can find more information about our tours and departure times on our Daily 90-Min Tours page.
