Today’s Musings: ACL Festival Lineup Posted!

April 28, 2009

Stop rubbing your eyes…it’s not the ’90s, it’s just the resurgence of the ’90s! With headliners like Pearl Jam, DMB, the Beastie Boys, Sonic Youth, the Toadies, and the B-52s, I feel just like I’m back in high school wearing flannel and a chain wallet. Luckily, some of those bands are still fantastic enough to draw in huge crowds. ACL is usually about the mid-size bands anyway, and this year’s lineup doesn’t disappoint. Lily Allen, The Decemberists, Andrew Bird, Devotchka, the Heartless Bastards, and others promise to be among the exciting shows. 2009 also brings with it some much needed diversity in the lineup with John Legend, Eek-A-Mouse, K’Naan, The Knux, Mos Def and others. C’mon October weather!
