Austin's summertime tradition is returning to Zilker Park this summer.


Blues on the Green is bringing free live music to the park June 14-15 and July 19-20, Austin City Limits Radio announced Wednesday. Performing artists have not been announced yet.

The concert series has been taking place for 30 years. It entails a sea of people lounging in Zilker Park with one stage featuring usually local musicians. Recent shows have included Gary Clark Jr. and Shakey Graves.

For the past two years, Blues on the Green has faced postponements due to COVID surges.

Tesla says it will preempt "recall" with a software update pushed to affected vehicles

(Tesla)

Tesla is not recalling almost 1.1 million vehicles because windows may close with excessive force and pinch a driver or passenger, according to a Tesla filing, which says the windows' automatic reversal system may not react correctly after detecting an obstruction.

The Austin company's internal testing revealed the issue in August. Tesla filed a "Part 573 Safety Recall Report" with the NHTSA identifying the issues, outlining a "recall plan," and listing affected models and years, including "certain vehicles":

  • Model S 2021-2022
  • Model 3 2017-2022
  • Model X 2021-2022
  • Model Y 2020-2022 (including some that were made in the Austin factory)
Instead of requiring vehicles to be serviced in-person, Tesla is pushing a software fix via an OTA (over the air) update. Similar to the process of an iPhone update, Tesla periodically modifies its vehicles' software systems with fixes and enhancements.

Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed Nov. 15.
