Austin City Limits 2012 | Friday


8:30 - 10:00 | Bud Light Stage

An amazing live band that was played waaaay too much on the radio this year. You might have to fight through a crowd that thinks El Camino is their only record but if they play at least one song from an album before Brothers, it will all be worth it.

Midnight City was an amazing song last year and I am sure it may still get you a little pumped when he performs it at this years fest but with 5 albums worth of material and tons of stage theatrics I wouldn't just stick around for the hit..


6:30 - 7:30 | Bud Light Stage

In a perfect world she would be headlining and I am sure Florence and The Machine's performance will be a highlight of the weekend. While her talent is very well known she still seems vastly underrated.


6:15 - 7:00 | Austin Ventures Stage

Considering The Black Lips would be more at home playing Fun Fun Fun Fest or Pysch Fest (they've played both) it's going to be pretty interesting seeing them at this years fest. Known for their intense live performances, which has even led to band members vomiting onstage, let's hope they don't tone things down this weekend.

Why recommend  a DJ at this music festival? Because over the last few years A-Trak has been winning scratch championships, launching his music label Fools Gold and serving as Kanye West's touring DJ all while traveling the world. I also think I saw him in a random vodka commercial recently? Guy knows how to start a party, even at 5:15.


4:30 - 5:30 | Bud Light Stage

Tegan and Sara are taking a break from fighting with Tyler the Creator and will instead focus on supporting both The Black Keys AND The Killers on their respective tours this fall. I will always be a sucker for "In Your Head". Man that was a catchy song.
