Kenny Rogers & Lionel Richie @ ACL Live
One of the most random SXSW showcases this year was Billboard's, which featured an opening set by rising indie stars Polica (who also played Hotel Vegan on Friday, and who Pitchfork acknowledged for the very first time today), hip hop singer-sonwriter, producer The-Game (who also played the Pitchfork official showcase), and.... Lionel Richie! And to sweeten the deal, Lionel brought out a special guest who was none other than Kenny Rogers! They sang "Lady". You can see the full setlist below.
Vintage Trouble was also one of the early openers at the Wednesday, 3/14, show at ACL Live's Moody Theater (which didn't really fill up until after Lionel started).
More pictures from the show, with Lionel's setlist, below....
