Tuesday Tunes: Countdown to ACL

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 SistersTennessee Me 

Delta SpiritBushwick Blues

Kurt Vile and the ViolatorsBaby’s Arms

Pretty Lights

Chancellor WarholThat Right One

Fitz & The TantrumsBreakin’ the Chains of Love

Little HurricaneHaunted Heart

We Are AugustinesChapel Song

and of course…Fleet FoxesWhite 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.
