The ACL OTHER list – updated

There are some strong shows this year at ACL but i am still debating going all three days. We’ll see. In the meantime here are a few ACL realted shows. As you know Austin starts a pre-fest and goes beyond the weekend. Not that i will be attending EVERYTHING, but here are some recommends. Champagne palace has a stocked fridge and a spare couch.

@ the Beauty Bar

– Single Frame, A Few Nice Things, Faceless Werewolves, Young Heart Attack, Flosstradamus, DJ Mel (this is quite a varied lineup but should bring the house down easily).

– Gotan Project
I’d consider this trip hop even though the phrase is not used but good latin style french dub/downtempo.

@ Club DeVille
The Black Angels, Til We’re Blue or Destroy.
If grew up near Seabrook you might have met or worked or went to school with the Maas family. Alex Maas strikes a good chord with some psych rock.

@ at Emo’s (outside stage)
– Stephen Marley, Zap Mama

@ Red 7 – factory people strikes again!
– Factory People and DFA Records present the LCD Soundsystem after-party with Lady Pterodactyl, Ghosthustler, Clap! Clap!, DJ sets by 2ManyDJs, Guns N Bombs, LCD Soundsystem (10pm-4am, $8, 18+)
