ACL Fest: Where the Streets Have No Name
One day Houston is going to have to get over its severe case of Austin Envy -- it's really annoying -- but we'll give y'all a pass at least until Monday. That's because the Press , along with a shit-ton of our fellow Houstonians, will be soaking up the sun, the booze and perhaps the remnants of Tropical Storm Humberto (Quintero) in Zilker Park all weekend at the sixth edition of the Austin City Limits Music Festival. What whacked-out costume will Bjork wear? Is U2 really a surprise headliner, and what's Bono doing in Austin anyway? Can Muse step into the White Stripes' headlining shoes? Are Peter Bjorn & John, the National and Regina Spektor all they're made out to be? Will anyone be able to make out a word Bob Dylan is singing? Will anyone even care?
Get the answers to these and many more questions -- plus tons and tons of ACL photos -- in next week's paper, and all weekend long right here on HouStoned Rocks. See y'all in Barton Springs... - Chris Gray
