Wilco – Live @ Austin City Limits

Date September 23, 2007

I’ve got one last ACL review to leave you with before I get to my regularly scheduled blogging, and it’s from one of the best acts of the weekend (second only to Muse). It was my first time seeing Wilco so I made sure I was front and center. It was a good feeling to [...]

Bloc Party – Live @ Austin City Limits

Date September 22, 2007

Everyone around me was really interested in how Bloc Party would sound live, and in the hour we spent waiting for them to start I was continuously being asked if I had seen them before. Like them though, this was my first experience with the band live and although it was great to finally see [...]

Ben Kweller – Live @ Austin City Limits

Being a huge Muse fan, I was prepared to have my face melted off and [...]

Cold War Kids – Live @ Austin City Limits

Date September 20, 2007

Cold War Kids tour so much and have opened for so many bands that I like, that it would seem like I should have seen them many times over by now, but ACL was the first chance I got and based on the rave reviews I’ve heard about their live show, I was pretty excited [...]
