For those of you lucky enough to be headed down to Austin’s Zilker Park on September 23rd-25th, turn on your printers, get out that red pen and prepare to plan your assault on the city.
Ace’s Two Cents: As a whole, Day One looks the most appealing, as the festival gives you a chance to catch Leo Kottke and Mike Gordon > MOFRO > Government Mule, plus you’ll see the Allman Brothers and the Black Crowes to close it out.
Although, the prospect of Robert Randolph and the Family Band > John Butler Trio > Dirty Dozen Brass Band > Widespread Panic > Jimmy Cliff > Oasis? > another set of WSP does seem masterfully appealing.
Either way, fun times ahead in the state of Tejas.
And stay tuned for media releases from last year’s Festival…this, from the July ACL newsletter: “The CD and DVD releases from the 2004 Festival hit stores August 30th, featuring highlights from 2004 including Trey Anastasio, Cake, Sheryl Crow, Dashboard Confessional, Franz Ferdinand, Shelby Lynne, Jack Johnson, Pixies, and much more. We’ll be sure to tell you how to get yours and relive the sights and sounds of ’04. Stay tuned for more.”
