TEXAS///MUSIC///LOST AT THE AUSTIN CITY LIMITS FESTIVAL
Just got back from a very long, lost weekend in Austin at LANCE ARMSTRONG‘s epic (and ridiculously underrated) AUSTIN CITY LIMITS FESTIVAL, where 40,000+ revelers gathered for three days of incredible music, beer, and BBQ. With a lineup featuring over 140 bands including ROBERT PLANT & ALISON KRAUSS, BECK, FOO FIGHTERS, THE BLACK KEYS, NERD, THE MARS VOLTA, SHARON JONES & THE DAP KINGS, NEKO CASE, MGMT, HOT CHIP, and CSS, performing on multiple stages, the sun-drenched sonic rendezvous was only enhanced by the unparalleled coolness of the mostly Austinite crowd that still appreciates rock ‘n’ roll on a level rarely seen outside of Europe. Highlights of the run included The Mars Volta’s earth-shattering set that nearly broke the sound barrier, Beck’s front-of-stage mid set electronic beatbox breakdown, Jack White shredding eardrums on his copper guitar, and a ragged late-nite session with DAVE GROHL following his epic FOO FIGHTERS festival finale.
