ACL Festival Day 2 - 10/4/2014

...but then crowd density reared its ugly head again with the battle of the headliners: EDM master Skrillex and established rapper Eminem. From the midway point of the festival grounds, dozens of teens were spotted running full tilt in the direction of Skrillex from Major Lazer's set, while older generations seemed to migrate toward Eminem. Skrillex kicked off his bass-heavy dubstep right on time, dousing the electric crowd with lasers. In the meantime, Slim Shady got a slower start, getting underway nearly 10 minutes late and with a video intro that was lost on tens of thousands who just weren't close enough to hear. Including this one, who instead threw in the towel and headed for home. [Sound Spike]
The first weekend of 2014's Austin City Limits Festival is now over, with the city gearing back up for a second round this weekend. Although the festival's second day was marred by some intermittent showers, killer sets were still plentiful from Eminem, Skrillex, Lana Del Rey, Major Lazer, Interpol, Broken Bells, tUnE-yArDs, Mac DeMarco, Polica, My Brightest Diamond, The Rosebuds and plenty more. Pictures from those sets and more are in this post.

Check out pics from Day 1 and pics from Day 3. More of Day 2 below...

Beck at Austin City Limits 2014 Weekend 1 (more by Tim Griffin)
Beck

The second weekend of this year's Austin City Limits is coming up (10/10-10/12), and unlike the first weekend (pics here) performances will be lived streamed all three days. Red Bull TV is streaming performances from over 45 artists throughout the weekend (much like they did with this year's Lollapalooza) including sets from Beck, Skrillex, Calvin Harris, Broken Bells, Lorde, Phantogram, Belle & Sebastian, Spoon, Interpol and many more. You can catch the stream which includes "live performances, artist interviews and behind-the scenes access" over at the Red Bull TV website from 2 PM to 10PM CST each day of the festival.

Red Bull TV is also premiering Skrillex's new 35-minute documentary, "Let's Make A Spaceship: Skrillex Mothership Tour 2014," which (if you couldn't guess) follows the process of the dubstep-king's ongoing and incredibly ambitious tour. The doc premieres immediately after Skrillex's headlining set at ACL and will be available to stream on demand through the Red Bull TV player immediately following the premiere.

Check out a list of all the artists you can watch on the stream below...

The NY Times reports:

Live Nation Entertainment, the concert and ticketing giant, is in advanced talks to buy a majority stake in C3 Presents, the country's largest independent promoter, with a portfolio that includes the popular Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits festivals.

The prospective deal, in negotiations for months but still not completed, would give Live Nation a stake of 51 percent in C3 Presents, and value C3 at around $250 million, according to two people with knowledge of the talks.

A spokeswoman for Live Nation declined to comment, and representatives of C3 did not immediately respond to requests for comment on Monday afternoon.

C3, based in Austin, Tex., is run by three friends all named Charles or Charlie -- in the music industry, they are widely known as "the Charlies" -- and the company has grown quickly from its founding in 2007.

C3, best known for owning those festivals, is also a major force in the Austin rock club scene. They recently bought the Emo's name (and its new location, Emo's East), and book shows at Stubb's, Lambert's, The Parish and other places. They also had a lot to do with Metallica's Orion Festival (which took place in Atlantic City and then Detroit).

Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails on 11/4/2013
Nine Inch Nails tape for Austin City Limits on 11/4/2013

From very early in the set Mr. Reznor said that he didn't want to bring a Nine Inch Nails show to Austin City Limits. He wanted the band to be a bit out of their comfort zone. He also remarked how it was very strange for him to be able to see himself since he is so used to being shrouded by the lights rather than illuminated by them.

As performers, Nine Inch Nails are damned-near flawless. With more than twenty years of experience they brought an unparalleled intensity to the stage. These are musicians who are used to headlining festivals and playing sold-out arena tours and they brought all of that volume and intensity to an intimate theater space. With a set that lasted an hour and forty-five minutes without a break, Mr. Reznor sweat clear through his all-black attire, which included a pair of dropped-crotch pants.
[Austin Bloggy Limits]

Announced just a week earlier, Nine Inch Nails taped an episode of ACL TV at the Moody Theater in Austin Monday night (11/4). As always, the taping included a lucky studio audience that was at least partially made up of those who gained entry via ACL's lottery system. We've got pictures and the setlist, some of which will make it into the shorter version of the show that airs on TV.

Nine Inch Nails played Voodoo Fest over the weekend and continue their tour in Texas in San Antonio tonight (11/5). Texas band Explosions in the Sky are also now the opener through 11/22 in Seattle. We caught NIN earlier on the tour at Barclays Center in Brooklyn with Godspeed You! Black Emperor who were the opener of the earlier leg. Brand new dates on NIN's future itinerary include Lollapalooza Brazil and Argentina in 2014 (they played Lollapalooza Chicago in 2013).

More pictures and the setlist from Austin City Limits (the TV show) along with tour dates, below...

Atoms for Peace @ ACL Fest 10/6/2013
ACL Festval Week 1, Day 3 - 10/6/2013

As you may have heard today's final day of Austin's ACL Fest's weekend 2 (10/13) was canceled due to flooding. Venues scrambled to book bands elsewhere and Atoms for Peace (who were to have headlined the Lady Bird stage tonight) landed at ACL Live / Moody Theatre. ACL will be streaming their performance live tonight at 10 PM CDT (11 PM Eastern). Watch it here.

Atoms for Peace played last Sunday (10/6) at weekend 1 of ACL and we already published a set of that and other W1D3 pics. A second set of Atoms for Peace pics from last weekend are in this post. You can check out pics of Weekend 2, Day 1 here and look for pics of the second day of ACL Weekend 2 soon. More of those Atoms for Peace pics below.

Like Passion Pit said, bands sometimes cancel shows due to weather. Austin City Limits reports:

Due to current weather conditions with flash flood warnings, The Austin City Limits Music Festival organizers have canceled the festival for Sunday, October 13.

"Our first priority is always the safety of our fans, staff and artists," said Shelby Meade, communications director for C3 Presents, the promoter behind Austin City Limits Music Festival. "We regret having to cancel the show today, but safety always comes first."

Refunds will be issued automatically by check from Front Gate Tickets within three weeks. One-third of ticket price will be refunded to all ticket buyers based on original ticket price paid, and will be mailed to the billing address on the original order. For questions, please visit http://support.frontgatetickets.com.

This would have been the sixth day of Austin City Limits which is now two weekends. Check out our pictures from Friday, and the ones from last Sunday which would have been the same lineup as today.

UPDATE: Check out a picture of the flooding that happened already.

Lots of cancellations lately: Tricky, Godflesh, and Delorean to name a few.

The National, Thao ATGDSD @ Stubb's - 10/05/2013
The National, Thao ATGDSD @ Stubb's - 10/05/2013

The first of two weekends of Austin City Limits went down in Austin over the weekend, a ton of official aftershows included. One of those shows was headlined by The National at Stubb's on Saturday. Thao and The Get Down Stay Down opened. Justin Vernon (aka Bon Iver), who was in town to play with his band The Shouting Matches, surprised the lucky crowd by joining the National for their last two songs, "Terrible Love" and "Vanderlyle Crybaby Geeks" (Justin also sings on the album version). National frontman Matt Berninger gave the crowd even more love by jumping into it at the end of the latter. Watch video of both, along with a set of pictures from the show (though no pictures of Justin), and the National's setlist, below....

ACL Music Festival 2013 - Day 3 - 10/6/2013

Going by evidence presented all weekend at ACL Fest, of all the bands of their generation, Franz Ferdinand might be the only ones with a sense of humor.

You can see it in the deliberately cartoonish oversized guitar amps with huge dials, knobs, and red lights erected in front of their actual backline. You can hear it as they morph one of their songs into Donna Summer's "I Feel Love."

The Glaswegian New Wave revivalists prove a master class in taut, muscular rock & roll and how to engage and entertain even the largest audience. - [Austin Chronicle]

The first weekend of the 2013 ACL Music Festival wrapped up on Sunday (10/6) with another big day of bands, including Phoenix, Atoms for Peace, The National, Tame Impala, Divine Fits, Franz Ferdinand, Toro Y Moi, Dawes, pop superstar Lionel Richie and lots more. Pictures from those bands and other Sunday performers are in this post.

ACL will do it all again -- almost identically -- this coming weekend (October 11 - 13). Many of the bands will be sticking around Texas in between to play official ACL Late Night shows which happen not just in Austin, but Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio too.

Divine Fits will be in NYC this weekend for the CBGB Festival, playing the big free Times Square show on Saturday afternoon (10/12) with My Morning Jacket, Grizzly Bear and a DJ set from James Murphy.

Pics from ACL day 1 are here (and an additional set of Depeche Mode here), and day 2 are here and here. More pics from day 3 below...

ACL Music Festival 2013 - Day 2 - 10/5/2013
ACL Music Festival 2013 - Day 2 - 10/5/2013

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.

Grizzly Bear at Stubb's in Austin - 4/8/13
Grizzly Bear

The Grizzly Bear-curated ATP, which was to go down in the UK on May 5, has been rescheduled to November 2 due to two headliners dropping off. All tickets for May 5 will be honored on November, but if you can't make it, refunds are available. Grizzly Bear's day was set to happen the day after the Yeah Yeah Yeahs-curated portion, which will still go down on May 4 as planned.

Grizzly Bear have also recently expanded their tour to include a number of other dates, all of which are listed below. Still, their only NYC show is their slot at Governors Ball in June.

They were also just in Austin for a show with Owen Pallett, and while they were there, they taped an episode of Austin City Limits on April 10. Stay tuned for that episode to air. And check out more pictures from the show (like the one above) on BV Austin and below, along with the list of updated dates...

Die Antwoord @ ACL 2012 (by Glen Brown)
ACLACL

We've completed our coverage of this past weekend's Austin City Limits festival with a set of pictures from Sunday, Die Antwoord (like the above) included.

Die Antwoord have a new and controversial video for "Fatty Boom Boom" which you can watch below.

Still no word on the identity of the body found near Austin Music Hall.

Maybe you heard it's CMJ week here in NYC and we're already tired and we haven't even seen any shows yet. But we are pumped to be throwing two day parties on at Public Assembly. Saturday's line-up hasn't been announced yet, but you can check out Friday's (10/19, including METZ, Savages and The Intelligence) here.

We also are sad to report that, despite what the flyer says, Sharon Van Etten is NOT playing that Thursday day party at Ace Hotel.

Muppets

A "Million Muppet March" is being planned in Washington DC on November 3 (three days before the election) to protest Mitt Romney's pledge to cut funding to PBS if elected president. The second of three Presedential Debates happens tonight at 9 PM EDT... UPDATE:

Speaking of, Menomena just toured through NYC and played Music Hall of Williamsburg and Bowery Ballroom.

The Lollipop King is suing South Park.
