"It was 6 o'clock on Sunday evening and the sun was setting on another Austin City Limits music festival. We ambled over to the Dell stage to check out The Band of Horses. At this point, I felt like I had inhaled about 40 lbs. of dust. Remember last years lush green landscapes and temperate climate? Well, this year was more akin to the "dust bowl" ACL Festival of 2006. With very little rain this summer and strict watering restrictions, I could see why, but it didn't make it any easier.
Back to the music.
We got to the stage early because some friends had a blanket pretty close to the stage and we didn't want to miss a minute of the show. Plus, we needed to rest our dogs after all the walking.
Band of Horses took the stage at approximately 6:28, ready to rock for the masses. Immediately, from the first notes of "First Song" off of their 2006 debut "Everything All of the Time," you knew that this show was going to be a good one. It was."
