Austin City Limits

“”This festival is super-cool,” said Strokes singer Julian Casablancas from the stage at Austin City Limits on Friday night. “Lotta stuff.” It’s true: The festival, now in its ninth year, packs 130 bands onto eight outdoor stages arranged around the 350-acre Zilker Park in Austin, Texas. The lineup is a mix of huge rock acts (the Eagles headline Sunday) and big-name indie bands, plus DJs, country singers and the occasional rapper. With an expected attendance of around 70,000 a day, the festival similar in size, if not in spirit, to Lollapalooza. “Lollapalooza has that city energy. It’s like the hot girl you want to take home,” one organizer, Lisa Hickey, said. “ACL is more laid-back — it’s like your best friend.” And unlike South By Southwest, the music and film showcase that takes over the Texas town every spring, ACL doesn’t have much of a music-industry angle — it’s almost strictly for fans.

On Friday night, the packed lineup presented the crowd with a happy problem: Four big-name guitar bands — Spoon, Sonic Youth, Vampire Weekend, and the Strokes — all had sets starting within two hours of each other, and seeing each set in its entirety was impossible.”
[Rolling Stone]

Of those big four, Tim managed to catch three, and a bit of Vampire Weekend’s favorite band Phish from afar. Phish’s set included a Velvet Underground and a Talking Heads cover. Full setlist at the end of this post.

Kings Go Forth pictures are HERE. The rest of the pictures from the first day of the 2010 Austin City Limits Music Festival (where Ezra Koenig joined Miike Snow on stage), continue, with a bunch of setlists (including Spoon’s which points out that Eleanor Friedberger played a Fiery Furnaces song with Spoon) (video proof too), below…
