Live: Austin City Limits Festival Preview

Not quite Woodstock - but a crowd nevertheless

Austin, Texas, hosts the big ol’ Austin City Limits festival beginning today (Friday) and ending Sunday – scheduled performers include the Black Keys, the Strokes, Muse, M.I.A., Spoon, the Eagles and many more.  Our Austin correspondent Lily Angelle is on the grounds right now, and she will send reports every night.  Hopefully she will also send along some photos that we can post intermittently over the weekend.

We already got a taste of this year’s festival with the controversial “pre-show” by the Strokes on Wednesday, and our reporter promises she will give the New Yorkers another chance when they hit the ACL stage around 8 p.m. tonight.  The Black Keys, led by Dan Auerbach, promises to be another highlight this evening.

Anyway, drop by over the weekend – we’ll update when we can.  You can catch a webcast of the music from the official festival site, and Austin radio station KUT-FM is providing wall-to-wall coverage as well.
