Opening with a sluggish "Plainsong," the band - led, as always, by founder Robert Smith - scanned tentative, with a chunky and worn-looking Smith seeming particularly unhappy. Yet the Cure founder emoted the follow-up "Pictures of You," and by the time the band hit "Lullaby," the entire group was more animated. Momentum established, the Cure could do no wrong.

Loosely dividing the concert into thirds, the band spent the first part on hits both massive and missed, from the jangly "High" and moody "Lovesong" to the funky "The Walk" and brooding "Fascination Street." A buoyant "Just Like Heaven" indicated the band isn't burned out on its biggest hit yet. [Austin Chronicle]

Austin's 2013 ACL Festival kicked off on Friday (10/4), its first day of two consecutive weekends, and continued on Saturday (10/5). Day 2 gave us sets from The Cure, Kendrick Lamar, Wilco, Passion Pit, Haim and more. Pictures from the second day of the fest are in this post, and there's another set at BV Austin.

The festival's first weekend wraps up today (10/6) with sets from Atoms for Peace, The National, Phoenix, and more. Then it all happens again next week (10/11-10/13). If you haven't been keeping up with our coverage, check out pics of day 1 here and more here.

Update: Day 3 pics are up now.

What is with the gross treatment in post on these photos?

Posted by Anonymous | October 6, 2013 5:46 PM

These pictures were great when I saw them the first time on Rolling Stone's website. Didn't realize that Brooklyn Vegan was into taking sloppy seconds. I guess jizz is vegan friendly.

These fests continue to get worse every year. A few decent old timers and a lot of absolute crap.

Most people in Austin have grown to detest Austin Shitty Limits. Can't wait till they move it to the outskirts of town next year. What a bunch of tools.

Austin is awful. It's basically all the goofiest parts of Broooklyn removed from the economic pressure that keeps people in line. These are the same kind of parents who when these kids grow up to be teenagers will try and be friends with them.

You're on a website called "Brooklyn Vegan" and you're judging others for basically being hipsters? LOL

(Current Austinite Comment)
Doesn't this look terrible?
No Single Days, reheated-leftovers lineup.

ACL Fest is terrible, FunFunFunFest is great, but they are inching closer and closer to the ACL pricing model. :(


***(the better ACL)
Austin Corn Lover's Fiesta

including David Yow w/ The Dicks!!!! $8
With more to come this 2nd weekend!

Y'all are so negative about Austin, you could move you know.

I only discovered this song/visual a few days ago and I am obsessed

I can't explain what I feel when I hear this, it makes me feel at peace and blissful but at the same time nostalgic. I get so happy and I love hearing it, it almost brings me to tears. The only piece of music that makes me feel like this.
