ACL Fest Blog: Exhausting

Exhausting…that is the best way to describe this weekend. It’s long, hot hours in a park filled with thousands of bodies and loud music. For those of us lucky enough to be here, we wouldn’t have it any other way.

The final day of ACL is here- and it will defiantly rock harder than the previous ones with acts like The Silversun Pickups (AT&T 4:30,) Okkervil River (AT&T Blue Room 5:30), Gnarls Barkley (AT&T 6:30), The Raconteurs (AMD 6:30) and Band of Horses (Dell 7:30). For those who would rather just chill, catch Neko Case (AMD 4:30), Blues Traveler (Dell 5:30), Galactic (WaMu 7:00). The weekend ends with a bang as the Foo Fighters (AT&T 8:30) close out the 2008 ACL Austin City Limits Music Festival.
Saturday’s performances were good but nothing really blew me away until I caught Crooked Fingers,

Man Man and Okkervil River at an Emo’s after show. Tonight’s big after show features The Black Keys, The Black Angels and Jessica Lea Mayfield at Stubb’s (801 Red River, 7pm).
