On Monday, I was tired. The four days between ACL Weekends included a day of recovery, a full week’s work of the day job in three days and quite a bit of time editing photos. Then three more days of fun, jams and mud – and not necessarily in that order. But it was time for entertaining out of town guests, playing tour guide, eating the best festival food and navigating through the depths humanity with a soundtrack provided by festival bands.
I realize that ACL is completely done now and many folks have the festival in their rearview as we move on to the next thing, but I’ve got one last related piece to share with you. Our final interview, and possibly our most interesting, comes today from new wave band Rey Pila. The ATH crew was excited for this one because we got to practice some of our Spanish with the Brooklyn based, but Mexico born band. Follow the jump for full interview.
Have you recovered from your weekend debauchery at ACL Fest by now? I know the ATH crew has been struggling this week, but we’re ready for more shows this weekend. Now we shared with you our thoughts about Day 1 yesterday so naturally today we’ll be discussing Day two (Saturday). We’ve got some fancy photos and a few opinions on what went down. Check it out after the jump.
Weekend one of ACL is now over, so naturally it’s time to reflect on what went down during the 3 day festival. Today we’ll be focusing on Friday of the first weekend and offering our thoughts on bands that played along with the general atmosphere. Each ATH member will share their opinion and we’ll also get some fancy photos from our man B.Gray.
Follow the jump for photos and recaps.
Well here it is folks, ACL Festival starts tomorrow and ATH will be signing off about this time tomorrow. Before you head out the door, check out another interview from festival act Empires. We’ll of course have a few more interviews coming your way after the weekend with full recap of the events. Follow the jump for interview.
Unless you’ve been under a rock or something, I’m sure you are aware that our annual ACL Festival is taking place this weekend in Zilker park. Now we’ve already shared a few interviews with you guys and today we’re pumping out several more. This one features up and coming indie-electro group Nightbox. Every band member gets in on this one with some great responses. Follow the jump for more.
You can almost smell it in the air can’t you? That’s right folks, ACL is just a mere week away and ATH is once again pumped for the fun and debauchery. Today I’m excited to share with you an interview I did recently with Nashville based rock band The Wans. They’re playing ACL, and we’re pumped to welcome them to town. Follow the jump for full interview.
As we’ve previously mentioned, ACL festival is only a short 2 weeks away. As we are known to do, we’ll be interviewing a whole slew of bands leading up to the weekend. Today we begin with Beat Connection. Follow the jump to see what they have to say.
It is time. Though it’s hard for me to believe, it’s time for us to start gearing up for yet another ACL Festival in October. ATH has done this thing a few times now so we feel like we’ve earned the right to offer a little bit of advice about bands to see and the proper way to go about attending. I’m jumping off our coverage today with a list of 5 bands I think you should see over the 2 weekend event. As a disclaimer, I typically recommend bands that many people either don’t know very well or write off for whatever reason. So yeah go see Spoon & The Replacements for sure, but let’s not forget about the underdogs. Let it begin after the jump.
The latest run-through the rules by Terry Licona was to introduce Thao the Get Down Stay Down. Back to the normal formula after the Nick Cave experiment, Thao’s set was webcast, as well. Their set from ACL was really fun. Festival band all the way, but how would it translate to the taping format? Happy to announce, quite well.
Read on for thoughts and a few pics from the night and some shots of her performance by the great Scott Newton.
