The Aces On How They Stay Healthy On Tour & Why They Love ACL | Austin City Limits 2019
Indie-pop quartet the Aces know exactly how to indulge in healthy eating while on the road. How do they avoid the convinience of fast food? Whole Foods.
"Whole Foods saves our lives when we're touring because we try to eat really healthy when we're touring. We don't do fast food, we don't do any of that stuff," frontwoman Cristal Ramirez told the Recording Academy. "[At] Whole Foods we just go in, we get hot bar, we get healthy snacks. It's a sense of sanity when you're touring nonstop."
The Utah band, who played ACL on Saturday, revealed that the supermarket founded in Austin is one of the reasons they love the city so much. Ramirez added that the music fest is another reason why the city is one of her favorites. "Austin is honestly one of my favorite cities in the country," she said. "It's just such a good vibe. I feel like everyone's so nice and this is really a music festival for music lovers."
