The ACL Bottom 5

Yeah we’re going there ACL. For all the numerous good things that happen during our little festival, there are always a few things people tend to complain about (whiners). We’re keeping this list just a bit short because I think most agree that the positives of the weekend always outweigh the negatives. Things not included on this list are complaints we have every year like: $8 Lonestars, $6 hamburgers that taste like dirt, long bathroom lines, and the like. Those are things we all hate but won’t be changing anytime soon. No, with this list, we hope the good people at C3 hear our cries and makes this festival the one everybody talks about.  So without further ado….. The Austin Town Hall Top 5 worst moments at ACL after the jump.

These United States On Daytrotter

These United States showed up on an encore performance on Daytrotter. We say encore because the band already performed for Daytrotter way back in March of 2007. Check out the band’s latest session on the slick Daytrotter website. Also, check out standout track “Burn This Bridge” from the performance in mp3 format below.

The ACL Top Ten

We decided to take a different route in reviewing the events of ACL and we thought a Top 10 List would be the way to go.  This isn’t just a list of our favorite bands, rather a list of the best things, moments, memories or any other tasty randomness we could come up with that went down over the weekend.  We obviously would love to hear what else we maybe missed from our list.  This isn’t just our opinion, it’s what we heard from you good peoples that attended this year’s ACL.  List is after the jump.

We Survived ACL

Yes ladies and gentlemen, we made it through ACL and we are working on our write-ups, interviews, etc.  We will start giving you guys the goods tomorrow and we promise it will be worth your while.  The exhaustion, dust, and late nights have taken their toll, but we have some of the best staffers around and the content should be great!
