Upcoming 2008 ACL Tapings: Gnarls Barkley, Erykah Badu, Manu Chao, Duffy
This is the 34th year of Austin City Limits tapings for its TV show that airs on PBS. According to Austin360, this years schedule of tapings during this year's ACL Festival will include Erykah Badu, Manu Chao, Gnarls Barkley, Swell Season, and Foo Fighters. The Foo Fighters taping will be the day after their headlining set on September 28. Duffy (who was scheduled to perform but canceled her ACL Festival gig) and Nick Lowe will tape episodes in October as well.
Update: Apparently due to circumstances regarding her band, Erykah Badu has cancelled her taping of Austin City Limits. The Drive by Truckers will tape on Friday, September 26th, with showtime TBD. [Official ACL Blog]
A few weeks back we were lucky enough to attend the My Morning Jacket taping, and all I can say we had a fantastic time. The ACL hotline number is 475-9077. You can also sign up for the ACL TV Newsletter here so you can stay in the loop.
