I know, another festival related post from myself, but it’s that time of year in Austin if you haven’t noticed. Fall. Sure SXSW rules the Spring, but Fall in Austin, Tx can have your head spinning at all of the live music options. Not only do we have ACL and Fun Fun Fun Fest, but the schedule of touring acts this time of year can be ridiculous. The festival known worldwide and sometimes confused with the television show is our kick-off to the end of the year in music for Austin, Tx, and as much as we might shy away from the fact that The Eagles are a headlining act, deep down inside it’s our festival, and a pretty cool one at that.
We jumped at the chance to sit down with Dave Lovering, drummer for The Pixies, prior to their trip to Austin. I chatted him up about his magic career, touring and, well, just about everything in between. Thanks so much to Dave for the opportunity; your graciousness is much appreciated. Follow the jump for full interview.
