Away with The Pixies

Away with The Pixies

ACL FEST 2004 – Day Three – Part One

Still riding the high of seeing The Pixies last night… but they aren’t here today, unfortunately. I thinkn it’s hotter today than it was yesterday, or the day before. Nonetheless, there’s already been some great music to catch. So far I’ve seen:

Guy Forsyth – I introduced him, and he did a great set of Austin rock. A fun show, and I had a few too many Amstel Lights backstage for noon in this heat…

American Analog Set – Great, trippy, space rock. These guys may work better in a club, but they set a nice, Sunday afternoon vibe.

Rachael Yamagata – Pretty piano and guitar pop, like a more friendly version of Fiona Apple. The heat was hard to compete with, but she did a pretty good job.

Okay, back to more music. I’m here at the SBC tent and some 10 year-old is using the laptop next to me to play video games. Video games? Does he not realize Calexico is on stage as we speak?? Perhaps not…
