Pre ACL Foder

I'm calling out Wednesday as the first unofficial day of Austin City Limits Fest. Why is that? Because I effing say so that's why! No, but seriously, I'm saying Wednesday simply because Them Crooked Vultures will be taping their Austin City Limits Television appearance on Wed. night. If you didn't already sign up for the space available ticket lotto then you're probably not going. But that's ok, dear reader, you can still catch Them Crooked Vultures at Stubb's on Thursday night. The ticket's gonna set you back half a Benjamin but is there really a price on the value of that particular concert experience? Turns out there is and it's about $50. Cough it up!

I'm also calling at Wed. as Day 1 of ACL Fest 'cause that's the first day that you'll really start to notice the first wave of tourists. Traffic will be a bit denser on Wed. The people in front of you will be looking around and pointing a lot. It's all very exciting.

I wanted to post "official" Them Crooked Vultures videos, because something tells me the ole' Websheriff is going to be all over this band. The unfortunate part about that is all of the official promotional things are snippets for those of us who have short attention sp

In reality, Thursday night is the TRUE unofficial first night of ACL. It's the first night of official and unofficial pre-parties action. There are so many bands and so much to feature on Thursday night that it's a bit overwhelming even for someone as Bloggy as I. But, fear not, we can talk about all of that in a more involved post soon. For now he's just ONE alternative if you can't swing a $50 Them Crooked Vultures ticket...
