ACL Day 1 – Friday

“No room in the inn” is the general vibe I’m getting for Austin this weekend. With the ACL Fest crowd AND the Texas/Arkansas football game AND the Ike evacuees who are still being told not to go home AND no hotel room available in the city … it’s going to be … well… packed.

For me though, I’m more concerned about the density of talent on the stages of Zilker.

Here’s where you might just find me on Friday:

  • 1:30pm – 2:30pm What Made Milwaukee Famous
  • 2:30pm – 3:30pm Vampire Weekend
  • 2:50pm – 3:30pm Louis XIV
  • 5:15pm – 6:00pm Mates of State
  • 5:45pm – 6:45pm Jenny Lewis
  • 6:30pm – 7:30pm N.E.R.D
  • 7:30pm – 8:30pm G. Love & Special Sauce
  • 8:30pm – 9:15pm Donavon Frankenreiter
  • 8:15pm – 9:30pm The Mars Volta

And in case you need to study up, here’s my essential playlist for Friday:

As far as Mates of State, N.E.R.D, and Mars Volta…  I don’t know them that well… so I need your help. What tracks should I be listening to to prep for them to rock my world on Friday? Let me know.
