Although the venue may have changed, the Austin City Limits' inaugural season will resume tapings in August, and we couldn't be more excited! If you haven't had a chance to partake in a musical event at The Moody Theater, you won't believe your ears how incredible of a place it is to take in a concert there. Seriously, I wish I could see every concert there from now on!
Now on to the taping schedule:
Joanna Newsom on Monday, August 1st
The Decemberists on Tuesday, August 9th
Gillian Welch on Tuesday, August 9th
Jeff Bridges on Wednesday, August 10th
Arcade Fire on Saturday, September 17th
Randy Newman on Monday, September 19th
As always with any announcements regarding ticket availability and giveaways for these amazing shows be sure to keep an eye on the ACL blog about a week before each taping. You can also follow them on Twitter (@acltv) and their Facebook page. (via)
We had a great time at Arcade Fire & Explosions In The Sky on Tuesday evening at The (new) Backyard! While the venue has some parking issues to work out, we have to say the performance by Arcade Fire was (as always) full of energy, with the crowd hanging onto every last word.
Now onto the pictures of both bands and videos of "The Suburbs" and "No Cars Go". Hope you enjoy!
Explosions In The Sky:
"No Cars Go"
Coming off their huge "Best Album" win at The Grammys last week Arcade Fire has now announced a string of dates and lucky for us we get one in Austin at The Backyard on May 3rd. Local Natives and Explosions in The Sky will offer support on specific legs of the tour with Austin getting Explosions opening.
No word on ticket sales but we will announce those details the second we find out via Twitter. (@ultra8201)
Updated: Tickets go on sale Friday, March 4th at 10 am. (Thanks JD)
