ACL Fest Schedule Released; Your Guide To The "Death Duels"

This morning, the organizers of the Austin City Limits Music Festival announced the schedule for the September 16-18 Zilker Park throwdown. We all knew there would be some tough choices, but Rocks Off found that when we actually dug into it, it wasn't so bad, as long as you hate generic indie-rock, which (1,2,3,4) you probably don't.

With names like Stevie Wonder, Kanye West, Arcade Fire, My Morning jacket, Coldplay and Randy Newman in the mix, we knew things would get interesting. We matched up some of the bands playing head-to-head and jotted down some advice for those of you on the fence.

Bear in mind, none of this will matter when you hit the park in September and your friends start dragging you to whatever it is they want to see.
