Review: Austin City Limits Music Festival 2011

Review: Austin City Limits Music Festival 2011

This year’s ACL Festival was a banner one in many ways.  After 10 years, marked by explosive growth and popularity, the 10th anniversary Fest needed to be memorable.  I’ve been attending ACL for the past six years and some have been better than others.  There have been times when I’ve sworn off attending ever again, [Continue]

Review: ACL Fest 2010, Day 3

Review: ACL Fest 2010, Day 3

Awww, are you sad yet?  I’m probably one of the last bloggers to get my reviews out there, plus tickets for ACL Fest 2011 are going to be on sale next week, so surely that means that this year’s fest will be a distant memory soon enough.  ACL Fest 2010, we’ll remember you for your [Continue]

Review: ACL Fest 2010, Day 2

Review: ACL Fest 2010, Day 2

I’m totally sorry about the gap between ACL Fest reviews there.  Shockingly, graduate school does NOT offer much flexibility, even when you have like, totally important music blogging to attend to!  Jeez.  Anyway, thanks for bearing with me and let the reviews of ACL Fest Day 2 begin! Overall, Saturday was a better festival day [Continue]

Review: ACL Fest 2010, Day 1

Review: ACL Fest 2010, Day 1

Wow, is anyone else still trying to catch up on sleep from the festival weekend?  Months and months of anticipation and excitement culminate in three of the fastest days of the year, quickly followed by one of the longest weeks of all time.  ACL Fest 2010 was no exception; there were ups (the addition of [Continue]

Concert Review: Everclear & MoTel Aviv (Austin, 7/2)

Concert Review: Everclear & MoTel Aviv (Austin, 7/2)

This past Friday, the popular ’90s band Everclear played at the Marchesa Theatre.  I wrote in my preview (if you missed it, read it here) that back in the day I was a huge Everclear fan, which means that I jumped at the opportunity to hear some nostalgic songs live for the first time.  But [Continue]

Concert Review: Nas & Damian Marley (Austin, 6/9)

Concert Review: Nas & Damian Marley (Austin, 6/9)

Rap icon Nas and reggae legend-in-the-making Damian Marley stormed Austin last night, thrilling the vast variety of fans who’d come out to see them in the steamy weather – lovers of rap, reggae, and any combination of the two, were undoubtedly captivated watching the pair of artists rip through the tracks from their new joint [Continue]

Video Recap of MASSIVE RELEASE

Hey everyone!  We put together a short video of the clips we took at the Massive Release show last Friday night at Encore and wanted to share it.  After I had spent the previous two weeks barely sleeping and thinking far too much, the night was much more about having a good time for [Continue]

Concert Review: Phoenix with Two Door Cinema Club (Austin, 4/29)

Concert Review: Phoenix with Two Door Cinema Club (Austin, 4/29)

Going to see Phoenix at Stubb’s on Thursday night was the first time in a while that I have been to a seriously hyped show.  Most of the shows I went to during SXSW and since then were pretty low-key.  And wow, it is a serious awakening when you realize that people are like, screaming [Continue]

Show Review: Bright Light Social Hour (Austin, 4/16)

Show Review: Bright Light Social Hour (Austin, 4/16)

Another name which might be familiar to you by now is Bright Light Social Hour.  BLSH opened The Frontier Brothers EP release party at The Parish on Friday night (The Lemurs headlined) so I got the chance to see them live for the very first time.  WHAAAAA??  These guys are ridiculously good!  In their (relatively) [Continue]

Reviews: SXSW Part 3 (Saturday 3/20)

Reviews: SXSW Part 3 (Saturday 3/20)

Yep, Saturday was so jam-packed full of action that it gets its very own recap.  And with this, we’ve come to the end of my SXSW recaps – and only 5 days after the fest ended!  But don’t worry, the Docubloggers/AGMG/ME-TV SXSW Special is still coming… 1:30 pm – Rachael Ray’s Feedback Party at Stubb’s [Continue]
