Austin City Limits Music Festival – Day One
Wow, Austin’s always been weird but tonight it’s even weirder. And much more crowded – Friday was the first night of the Austin City Limits Music Festival. We crossed over Barton Springs Road (which leads to the festival grounds in Zilker Park) around 9:30 p.m. and it looked like much of the crowd left after Florence + the Machine’s set.
The Black Keys may have been the nominal headliner Friday, but they more or less shared the crowd with Florence (who played before the Keys on the same stage). It will be interesting to see what happens tonight, when Jack White and Neil Young play at the same time in two different parts of the park.
Let’s review some of the acts from the first night, with videos graciously supplied by our friends at ACL.
Alabama Shakes – “Heavy Chevy”
Tegan and Sara – “Back In Your Head”
The Black Keys – “Gold On The Ceiling”
Florence + the Machine – “Rabbit Heart” (Thanks to Florence + the Machine Fan Club)
