chk chk chk

"The 2009 Austin City Limits Music Festival will showcase a diverse blend of acts both fresh and familiar at the eighth edition of the event in Zilker Park October 2-4. Pearl Jam, Dave Matthews Band, and Beastie Boys are performing for the first time at the Festival, with Kings of Leon, Ben Harper and Relentless7, and Thievery Corporation returning to Zilker Park once again. John Legend, The Dead Weather, and The Levon Helm Band will also make their ACL Festival debut, while Austin's own Ghostland Observatory will no doubt deliver another memorable set for festival goers.

With over 130 artists on this year's bill, the list of acts awes at each note with the likes of Sonic Youth, Mos Def, Toadies, Flogging Molly, The B-52s, Lily Allen, Citizen Cope, Arctic Monkeys, The Decemberists, Coheed and Cambria, Andrew Bird, Girl Talk, and many more.

In the tradition of the TV show from which it was born, the Festival has always aimed to offer musical discovery for the fans. The 2009 lineup is rich with pop, country, folk, bluegrass, blues, reggae, indie rock, hip-hop, and gospel, to name a few, spanning cultures and countries from New Orleans to Venezuela to France."

Suckers are playing? Weird...but pretty cool for them. They deserve it.

Clearly I remember pickin on the boy
Seemed a harmless little fuck
Ooh, but we unleashed a lion...
Gnashed his teeth and bit the recess ladys breast...
How can I forget?
And he hit me with a surprise left
My jaw left hurtin...ooh, dropped wide open
Just like the day...oh, like the day I heard

Pearl Jam is better than Animal Collective. Just wanted to remind half the retards who read this blog.

Posted by Venkman | April 28, 2009 9:05 AM

Kings of Leon playing a music festival? Now I've heard it all.

"so do all of these sets get filmed for pbs or just a few? how does this work?"

the tv show is filmed in a studio in downtown austin. but some sets from zilker will be webcast that weekend

Posted by Anonymous | April 28, 2009 9:42 AM

some of the bands (only a few) do a separate taping for the PBS show.

Posted by Anonymous | April 28, 2009 9:42 AM

Hey Venkman

Not really, but thanks from one of the retards who prefer not to listen to that boring shit

Posted by Anonymous | April 28, 2009 9:44 AM

I don't see how you can ever compare PJ to Animal Collective.

Both bands are great in their own right but completely different.

It's like comparing donkey boners with rhino penises.

Posted by Penguin Shit | April 28, 2009 9:51 AM

I am just surprised that !!! still exists.

@9:57am.

Your parents are surprised you still exist given the worthlessness of our adult years.

austin city limits MEHsic festival.

Posted by Anonymous | April 28, 2009 10:22 AM

Went to ACL last year and was surprised by how bad most of the bands were live.

Says the man whoring out terrible clothing at cutdrop.

best festival lineup for the bux. fuch all the NYC h8rs who are going to APW. yall are SUCKERZ shelling out 200plus bux for that RHEA.

Posted by Anonymous | April 28, 2009 11:18 AM

i live in as post-!!! world. as far as i'm concerned hey no longer exist.

Posted by Anonymous | April 28, 2009 12:04 PM

Not bad at all. Although still not very different from any other festival this year.

Posted by Anonymous | April 28, 2009 12:22 PM

This is very weak. How can you think APW isn't better than this? Sucks because I am actually going to be IN TEXAS at the time and will likely have to go to this substandard festival.

More importantly: HOW DOES DEAD WEATHER GET HIGHER BILLING THAN SONIC YOUTH??? Though I barely like either, still crazy.

Posted by Anonymous | April 28, 2009 12:37 PM

generally my fav festival irrespective of the lineup. seriously, thank all of you who aren't going - more everything for me

Posted by Anonymous | April 28, 2009 12:38 PM

Wow...Beastie Boys. There's a shocker.

Posted by Anonymous | April 28, 2009 2:13 PM

Anon 9:44 have you ever seen Animal Collective live? It's the most boring shit I've ever seen.

Posted by Venkman | April 28, 2009 2:55 PM

Damn you, MC! You beat me to the punch!

Posted by donkey punch | April 28, 2009 5:54 PM

I love it how all the band that are headlining play local bars and are usually at the bottom of the festival.

Posted by boo | April 28, 2009 6:08 PM

!!! are completely awesome live...they were a highlight at P4K last year and are awesome at playing their own shows, too...

I have seen both bands and will be seeing AC again well before Pearl Jam...but they are different beasts like somebody else said, I just find AC 110 times more interesting musically and performance wise...you were bored... oh well, they or I will lose no sleep over it ThanXXX just not sure why you have to bash something on this post that has nothing to do with them....Cheers

Wow. That's an impressive Line-up. 185$ is still a lot of money though.

Posted by emo girl | October 18, 2009 12:18 PM

I would have liked to seen pearl jam and davemathews. Not sure how much they get to play it might be better seeing them on thier own. Sounds like it was alot of fun and they had some good bands from the present and the past so anyone could have liked it.

Austin City Limits there is one of the best festivals in the world. This festival is filled with ingenious works. I dream to visit at this festival. You can find the information about participants of this festival on http://www.queentorrent.com.
