texas, anyone?

So who wants to "come down with a 72-hour stomache virus" on September 23-25? The Austin City Limits Music Festival is like Coachella, SXSW, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, and the misguided Field Day rolled into one. It's been so long since I've been to a concert my vagina is about to explode just reading this lineup:

Coldplay
Oasis
Wilco
Lucinda Williams
Arcade Fire
Death Cab for Cutie
Built to Spill
Bloc Party
Franz Ferdinand
Sleater-Kinney
Keane
The Doves
The Walkmen
Rilo Kiley
Spoon
The Secret Machines
The Decemberists
The Bravery
The Fiery Furnaces
The Futureheads
Rachael Yamagata
Ambulance Ltd

And those are just the ones I know and like. There are about 10 times that many, making it easy to overlook Lyle Lovett and Jason Mraz. Thanks, Thighswide.

Wow...looks like a sweet lineup. But certainly, you can skip work for Summerfest too. :)

Oooh yeah Summerfest. I never actually went to that, though in like seventh grade I remember trying to get tickets to go see Boyz II Men but it didn't work out. I think my mom wouldn't let me or something.

you didn't mention Bob Mould? I don't thin that there is another in the ACL lineup that I've listened to longer (Husker Du, Sugar, and solo work)
