    Jenny Lewis: Acid Tongue

    At this point, it's pretty hard to make music about the tension between sin and redemption without sounding hokey. That whole church thing had already been reinvented a zillion times (see: Cash, Cave, Kanye) before Jenny Lewis took a dusty side trip...

    LL Cool J: Exit 13

    ACL Notebook Dump, Pt. 2: Measuring Time Mars Volta-Style, Led Zeppelin Rumors and More

    Nope. No Page. Just Plant. * C3 and Capitol Metro have really improved their shuttle-bus efficiency. Granted, both the Mars Volta and Manu Chao were far from through when I left the park, but the line never stalled for more than about 30 seconds. I...

    Random Thoughts on ACL Fest

    The best fan-participation moment came during Sharon Jones' set, when not one but two different random slobs got onstage to dance with the funky soul siren's set. The first guy was a bearded, burly dude who came out from backstage and busted some imp...

    Yawn: Foo Fighters at ACL Fest

    I want to like the Foo Fighters, I really do. Since Nirvana, Dave Grohl has always come off as a really likeable guy for a rock megastar with a gift for catchy hooks and big rock choruses. But about a half hour was all I needed before the Foos' songs...

    Zilker Park scenes from Sunday

    It's one thing to get a band tattoo. It's quite another to appropriate as your own makeshift family crest. In a sea of pirate flags and inflatable chicks, it's a welcome relief to see a crazy ass feather boa contraption that screams "Hey Gurl!" ...
