ACL Aftershows and Festival Tapings Announced


The good folks at ACL have just announced the aftershows that come along with the festival. This year, the pairings are great and are worth showing up for, especially if you've found yourself hangingout in the back of the crowd, with all those people eating mushrooms and dancing a little too close to eachother. On Thursday at La Zona Rosa, Spoon is playing with Sound Team, and Alright Tonight!. Peter Bjorn and John are opening for Paolo Nutini on Friday at Stubb's. At Emo's on Saturday, you can catch Blonde Redhead and The National and if you live in Austin or are still hung over at your hotel on Monday, you can see Yo La Tengo at The Parish
If you are lucky enough, you can catch some amazing acts from the festival in studio at an ACL taping. There have already been summer sessions from bands like Explosions in the Sky, Ghostland Observatory, and The Decemberists. Festival weekend plays hosts to a session from both Wilco and The Arcade Fire, so if you're lucky enough to get tickets, you could potentially end up seeing two of today's best acts in a tiny studio on campus at UT.
