I’d originally pledged to work my way through the Austin City Limits Festival line-up hoping to uncover new gems I wasn’t yet familiar with. Unfortunately, I failed miserably in that quest. But alas, the festival is quickly approaching, just days away (!!), so what better time to highlight a handful of the many bands I am totally psyched to see?! I could rattle on about the artists who will be taking the stage(s) this weekend, but I’ll let their music do the talking for me. So sit back, relax and allow me to influence your ear drums for a few.
The Secret Sisters – Tennessee Me
Delta Spirit – Bushwick Blues
Kurt Vile and the Violators – Baby’s Arms
Chancellor Warhol – That Right One
Fitz & The Tantrums – Breakin’ the Chains of Love
Little Hurricane – Haunted Heart
We Are Augustines – Chapel Song
and of course…Fleet Foxes – White Winter Hymnal
Now how’s THAT for Tuesday Tunes post?! …and this doesn’t even scratch the surface. To think I wasn’t even that jazzed about this year’s line-up. I’m sure I’ll have plenty to keep me busy. There’s nothing like sweating it out with 20,000 other music lovers, listening to art, to music, to life.
Any other recommendations? My schedule is pretty packed, but I can always find a way to squeeze in another band or two if they are awesome.
