ACL lineup is available!

The Austin City Limits Festival lineup is out!

Built to Spill! The Decemberists! Mouse on Mars! M83!! Arcade Fire!!! Awgh, yes, exclamation points. Seriously, I'm thrilled. Sure it will be hot and there will be too many people, but it's all worth it for three days of great music in my home town.

While I'm mostly pumped about the smaller acts, the headliners are pretty decent this year: Wilco (apparently a permanent fixture), John Prine, Lyle Lovett, and Jimmy Cliff(?!). Not so much thrilled about The Allman Brothers Band, Black Crowes, Oasis, or Widespread Panic (gag). You take the bad with the good. Like the chatterchairs.


  1. I haven't decided yet. I suppose I should soon.


  2. I wish I liked festivals, because there is a seriously good lineup this year. But the heat! The outdoorsiness! The ticket prices! The port--a-poties! The crowds! I just don't have the stamina for those things. And then, it also makes me sad when some bands I really like (Fiery Furnaces...) end up at the festival, because it means they won't come back to Austin again on that tour. Boo.
