Austin City Limits 2008

I received a free 3-day pass to the Austin City Limits Festival. Actually, Anslee gave it to me because she'll be in Europe this weekend. So I'm much less jealous of her trip now that I'm going to ACL in her stead.

Here is the line-up of artists I'm planning on seeing:
Friday
  • Vampire Weekend
  • Patty Griffin (in honor of Anslee)
  • Mates of State
  • Jenny Lewis
  • The Swell Season
  • The Mars Volta
Saturday
  • Fleet Foxes
  • Jose Gonzalez
  • Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings
  • Man Man
  • Connor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band
  • Iron & Wine
  • Beck
Sunday
  • Octopus Project
  • Gillian Welch
  • Stars
  • Neko Case
  • Okkervil River
  • Gnarls Barkley
  • Tegan and Sarah
  • Band of Horses
  • Foo Fighters
Also of interest, we will have three people from out-of-town staying at our house for ACL. One of roommate's best college friends is coming from LA, but we also have couch surfers - complete strangers who my roommate found through the website couchsurfing.com. They sound like decent people...
