ACL 2010 | Saturday Schedule
Our top picks for Saturday.12:15 - 1:00 Lissie - A talented singer who made a stir earlier this year with her cover of Lady Gaga's 'Bad Romance'. Expect people to be waiting to hear that one but stick around because she has a lot of great tracks.
12:30 - 1:30 The Very Best - Vampire Weekends current tour mates and with good reason. You can definitely see the similarities in sound. Ezra Koenig cameos on the track "Warm Heart of Africa". Maybe he will make an appearance?
1:30 - 2:30 Bear In Heaven - One of our favorite new bands and stand outs during the SXSW music conference. The band has been touring all over the world this year and are a must see. Promise.
2:20 - 3:00 Two Door Cinema Club - This electro pop group made the rounds this year opening for Phoenix. We will see how well they come across in the early part of the day. Should still be fun though.
4:30 - 5:30 Broken Bells vs Local Natives vs Silversun Pickups - We're over the Pickups and although Broken Bells released a great debut this year we have to go with Local Natives. They are a band on the brink of great things and this will be reminiscent of Arcade Fires afternoon performance in 05. Essential.
5:30 - 6:30 Kinky vs The xx - Kinky has been called the mexican Radiohead and The xx are all the rave right now. We have to go with The xx but if you get annoyed with the swelled crowd they are sure to attract stop by and check out Kinky.
6:30 - 7:30 Gogol Bordello vs LCD Soundsystem - Depend on your party mood at that point of the day. If you are feeling gritty we say Gogol Bordello is the way to go but if that isn't your thing LCD is a good option. Going to try to split this one.
7:30 - 8:30 Deadmau5 vs Matt and Kim - Going to take a chance on Deadmau5. I think with a late set that the stage set up should be worth checking out. If you are feeling bummed out stop by Matt and Kim. That will get you pepped up..
8:30 - 10:00 Muse vs M.I.A - Kind of over both these but they should both be interesting to watch. Tough one but I would say open with M.I.A and then make your way to Muse to see some theatrics.
