Black Angels @ ACL Fest 10/11/2013
The Austin City Limits Festival 2013 opened its second weekend as the sold-out festival it has been for more than a decade, encouraging hopes that the dual-weekend approach to the event would stick past this year. It did dash some expectations that a repeat of its opening round last weekend would draw smaller crowds, at least over the course of the entire three days.While Sunday's finale (10/13) was a literal wash, the second weekend of the ACL Music Festival got off to a muggy start on Friday (10/11) with -- like the previous Friday -- sets from Arctic Monkeys, Vampire Weekend, QOTSA, Okkervil River, Pinback, Jake Bugg, Depeche Mode, Local Natives, Muse and more. Pictures from day 1 are in this post.
But the sea of humanity was noticeably thinner on Day One in the early hours -- more like the festival days of old, when it was just the working locals who came to ACL; from 11 am to around 4 pm Friday, the atmosphere was low-key, aired-out and open, with plenty of space for blankets and no throngs stepping on your toes every four seconds. - [CultureMap]

Sky Ferreira is disappointed to announce that on doctor's orders she is forced to cancel the remaining dates she had confirmed supporting Vampire Weekend. She wishes to send her heartfelt apologies to both Vampire Weekend and her fans for the inconvenience her vocal injury has caused.Sky Ferreira has canceled all her upcoming dates with Vampire Weekend, and that included an ACL Late Night show on 10/10 in Dallas (Grand Prairie). The Olms are now opening that show. Sky will be resting her voice -- which she's had problems with before -- at the end of the month and her tour with Smith Westerns (which does not hit Texas) is still on. Updated tour dates are listed below.
Vampire Weekend, meanwhile, played ACL last night (10/4) and will play again on Friday (10/11).
