It's hard to believe, after all the anticipation, that another ACL Festival is in the bag. This was probably the best weather weekend we've had, even though temps on Sat and Sun were a little higher midday than most of us would like. I saw some favorite bands on Sunday, including Shearwater, White Rabbits, SPEAK, Midlake, Band of Horses, Flaming Lips, The National... I mean, really... what a hipster fest. These are some of the hottest indie acts around. Of course, the was the big headliner, the legendary Eagles, who basically played hits non-stop for two hours while 50,000 people sang along.
Aside from the lack of wireless throughout the weekend, it was basically a perfect event. Given that most people wanted to share their pics, comments and general enthusiasm for the event, you'd think they'd work this problem out by now. But that's a minor complaint, with such great music all around. I guess I'll be buying my tickets for 2011 soon :-)
Band of Horses - Laredo. I really love this song.
