Austin Event Preview: ACL’s Friday, October 2nd Schedule

September 25, 2009

There’s a whole lot of great bands playing at ACL this year.  I’ll tell you where I’ll be, but you can make your own schedule and check out the rest of the bands here.  So without further ado, here are my picks for Friday’s festival!

12:30 pm

Asleep at the Wheel

The Austin originals always entertain and are sure to start your day off on the right foot.

The Knux

Yes, this is going to an awesome show.  If you missed my review of their album, read it here.

Get your ’60s trip-fix with the pop-happy Dr. Dog.

The rest of the day after the jump!

I’m not crazy about the Kings of Leon, but I’ll be there anyway jamming to only the songs I know.
