Not much goin’ on until…
Afghan Whigs, 4:15 @ AMD
I LOVE this band. Gentlemen is on of my all time favorite albums, with Black Love and Congregation not far behind. I even had these albums on original, non-bootleg cassette tapes back in the day. YouTube here. The Brothers Earhart are headed to Antone’s on Saturday night for a full Afghan Whigs set. A trip down memory lane will make for a therapeutic evening.
Weezer, 6:15 @ AMD
Just stay put and move-up for a better spot, continue to pretend you were alive when Mr. Earhart was enjoying Weezer’s debut album and jamming to “Say it Ain’t So” and “Buddy Holly.” The Buddy Holly video is a classic.
M83, 7:30 @ Barton Springs
The MUST SEE act of the festival. Amazing live. Don’t miss it. Though it sucks they’re across from M. Ward. At a festival, always go rock/dance over singer-songwriter. Trust me on this one.
The Black Keys, 8:30 @ Bud Light
I think they’re getting extremely boring, but it’s still pretty good. I prefer the raw, bare bones version.
Zola Jesus, 1:15 @ Honda
One of the most interesting artists of the last few years.
Andrew Bird, 4:00 @ Honda
Great songwriter and performer. I saw him open for My Morning Jacket back in 2002ish. it was just him and his violin; I was blown away.
Steve Earle, 7:00 @ Austin Ventures
An even better songwriter than Bird.
Neil Young, 8:00 @ Bud Light
If you actually go to see Jack White instead of Neil Young, please withdraw from my course. Neil Young is one of the greatest musicians of all-time. I can’t believe I’m not gonna’ be there for this show. And he’s with Crazy Horse.
The Eastern Sea, 11:20 @ Austin Ventures
Matt Hines is a great friend of Anderson AVID and a great musician. Go check ‘em out. The new album, Plague is really good pop. And I’m picky on pop.
Iggy and The Stooges, 6:15 @ Bud Light
Why not? Check out some classics. The rest of the day feels like a bust. Though, for some reason, the Red Hot Chili Peppers have gained a cult following over the last few years. Whatevs.
