Sorry, no good blog headlines were forthcoming. Anyway, I was looking through the Austin City Limits line-up for this year, which is generally a mixed bag. Most attendees are probably going to be able to do without Los Lonely Boys; and listening to Nickel Creek for extended periods of time is hazardous to your spiritual and emotional health. But Husky Rescue (below) is slated for the undercard, as is the excellent Wolf Parade and excellent-in-a-different way Stars.
In other news, next Wednesday, the 19th, Danielson is playing with funky local performance artists U.V. Protection, at the Middle East. This is a good, and musically stimulating line-up. Kudos to the booker. Not yet sold out, I believe...
