    Soul Day at ACL: I Feel Good!

    To be honest, I thought today was going to suck, but it's been the exact opposite. After some ridonkulous partying last night at Heartless Bastards' ear-splitting basement blues party - hey, it was my first time at Emo's in six months - I set a new p...

    The Old 97's at ACL Fest

    The last time I saw the Old 97's was at The Argo in Denton sometime in the last century. A gutter-punk couple was square dancing, which felt perfectly appropriate to the twangy yet gritty music that night. As the group got poppier and poppier with ea...

    Current Events at ACL Fest: Democrats, Republicans and Washington Mutual

    "I don't give a fuck if you're a Democrat or Republican, just vote," Pharrell urged. Onstage and off, current events seem to be looming over ACL far more than any other festival I've been to. Bukue One, rocking a red Obama T-shirt, urged everyone to ...

    ACL Fest, Day One: Delta Spirit, Jamie Liddell, Hot Chip, Gogol Bordello and Yes, Even Louis XIV

    So far for me, ACL has been all about dilemmas. They're the good kind of conflicts, though, like whether to see N.E.R.D. or David Byrne; Gnarls Barkley or Raconteurs; John Fogerty or blow my head off. Click here for more......

    A Little Morning Dancing to Put You in the Mood

    Morning. We'll have more reports from last night's ACL Fest shows up in a little bit, but for now here's some quick video from Craig Hlavaty of a dude dancing during Gogol Bordello's set. The straw hat. The fancy water pouch. The khaki sh...

    ACL Day One: More band photos

    A treacherous wifi failure in Austin's Zilker Park (somewhere near bad Red Rope licorice in the pantheon of festival disasters) kept the posting slow yesterday, but here's hoping for clear signals ahead on day 2. As Saturday morning rises over the hi...

    How bout some band shots?

    The crowd may be where it's at, when it comes to giant novelty cowboy hats, hula hoop circles and Lone Star tall boys. But ACL kicked off Friday with a respectable start to its all-star lineup. Gogol Bordello (Dawn Jones-Garcia) More from O...

    ACL Pix: More Scenes from Zilker

    ACL Dudefest: M. Ward, David Byrne, Bobby Bare Jr. and Ryan Bingham

    Bobby Bare Jr / Photo by Chris Gray Maybe it wasn't such a good idea for Austin City Limits to put acoustic singer-songwriter M. Ward a few hundred yards away from boisterous gypsy-punks Gogol Bordello in the WaMu tent. (On a side not, I guess this...

    ACL: Sunny Sweeney Yes, Vampire Weekend No

    I think ACL has managed to squeeze all its country between noon and 3 p.m. today. Luckily Sunny Sweeney, a Longview native now based out of Austin, was part of it. Sweeney, a former improv comedienne, has a winning stage presence and a wicked way w...

    Setting the Scene

    Of course, a humongous outdoor festival like ACL is as much about the parade of sweat-soaked, under-dressed humanity as it is about the bands. With that in mind, here's just a brief look around Austin's Zilker Park this afternoon. This guy wanted ...

    Get Lit: Skydog: The Duane Allman Story, by Randy Poe

    When he died in October 1971 in a motorcycle accident on the streets of his hometown in Macon, Georgia, the 24-year-old had already made a huge impact on both fans and fellow musicians. Nicknamed "Dog," and then "Skyman" (the latter given to him by W...

    Cory Mo: Still Payin' Due'z Vol. III

    The litmus test for a Cory Mo album is the amount of "...nice" moments it contains. Put simply, a "...nice" moment occurs when something happens in a song, be it a clever punch line or unexpected snare, that makes you go "...nice." Lil' Wayne has ri...

    Smells Like Teen Spirit - Rocking the school day away with Pin Oak Middle School's Stage Band class

    The Gloryhounds are onstage right now at a Surfside bar and, truth be told, they're not great. Matter of fact, they fall firmly into the "middling bar band" category and play mostly covers you'd expect of such a group: Cheap Trick's "Surrender," Cowb...

    New North Heights Hipster Hang: Big Star Bar - Bad Motor Scooter

    Chrome/Helios Creed

    Chrome was one of the most influential experimental bands, presaging the harsh, angular, mechanistic songwriting that would become industrial music. The act's paranoid vision of a dystopian world expressed itself in sounds that recalled the late-'60...
