Austin City Limits

This past weekend was a fun one (and a long one)! Mark and I went to ACL. It's a 3-day music festival here in Austin. It was Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The music starts at 11am and ends at 10pm. By the time Sunday was here, we were exhausted and needed a weekend for our weekend. (That guy you don't recognize is Mark's buddy from work, Josh...he'll be going camping with us in a few weeks!)

Friday we saw Dan Dyer, Asleep At the Wheel, What Made Milwaukee Famous, Vampire Weekend, Slightly Stoopid, N.E.R.D., David Byrne (formally with the Talking Heads) and G. Love & Special Sauce. I would say the best was probably G Love or What Made Milwaukee Famous.

Saturday we saw The Fratellis, The Band of Heathens, Eli 'Paperboy' Reed and the True Loves, Robert Earl Keen, MGMT, John Fogerty, The Black Keys, Robert Plant & Alison Krauss and Beck. Robert Earl Keen is always a good time and we enjoyed Jon Fogerty (CCR)!

Day 3 was a doozy! I was sooo tired but we wanted to get our money's worth so we toughed it out for another long day. We saw Nicole Atkins & the Sea, The Kills, Octopus Project, Flyleaf, Massacoustics, Joe Bonamassa, Silversun Pickups, Blues Traveler, The Raconteurs, Kevin Fowler and Foo Fighters.

I would recommend that you check out: Nicole Atkins & the Sea, The Raconteurs and Joe Bonamassa if you like music.

My favorite was The Raconteurs...hands down.

  1. I haven't heard of most of the bands but you have good taste in music so I'll trust the ones you said were good.

    Glad y'all had a good time. Hope you didn't get too sunburned!
