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]

Special Edition Review: Coldplay’s Upcoming “Mylo Xyloto”

Mylo Xyloto (Release date – October 24, 2011) Hi there readers!  I can’t believe it’s been nine months since I’ve written a post.  Graduate school ended back in May, and while I’ve been tossing around the idea of blogging again, the truth is that I just haven’t gotten around to it.  This weekend though, I [Continue]

ACL Festival Pre/Aftershows Announced

For the past several years, many of Austin’s most savvy concert goers have bypassed the ACL Festival entirely in favor of a different ACL weekend experience.  C3, the organization behind the fest, puts on a series of aftershows where some of the buzziest bands playing the ACL festival perform separate shows in venues around the [Continue]
