acl, day three

  1. hustle up- galactic: they describe themselves as “jazz funk.” i think they sound like the beastie boys with a ben harper vibe. i’ve heard they usually bring guests when they perform, so be ready to see some folks from good ol’ NOLA take the stage with them.
  2. that teenage feeling- neko case: the new pornographers aren’t on the lineup this year, but at least we get neko case. it’s a little more alt-country…think a poppier, female version of ryan adams. (i bet you’re wondering how i manage to mention ryan adams in every post. sorry, i just love him so much.)
  3. i see the bright shinies- the octopus project: i don’t have a whole lot to say about this one. it’s instrumental, so i’m not a huge fan. it’s definitely interesting though.
  4. hand to take hold of the scene- okkervil river: this song is a lot more upbeat and has more instrumental variety than the majority of their music, but i still like it. for some reason, it reminds me of “the general” by dispatch, but that may be because they’re singing really fast. haha, i don’t know.
  5. come to me- south austin jug band: heard this song on kgsr…love, love, love it. they’re not as bluegrassy as their name might imply. i mean, there’s a fiddle and a mandolin. i guess you could compare them to nickel creek.

who i’m dying to see: the kills, stars, tristan prettyman

other big names: against me!, blues traveler, foo fighters (ugh), gnarls barkley, the raconteurs, silversun pickups, tegan and sara, xavier rudd

  1. I like the Foo Fighters. Spur58 always told me I looked like Dave Grohl, but I never saw it.
