The Grizzly Life's Custom Picks for Sunday - ACL 2010

ACL 2010 - Sunday

Sunday's schedule for ACL might be the best day of the festival. Its definitely hard to pick one out of the three, but the lineup for Sunday is superb. Starting things off with Warpaint, then Ted Leo and the Pharmacists or Foals, depending on your preference for punk or Brit-pop, respectively. The Morning Benders vs. Gayngs is a tough choice, but both are pretty easy going. The Morning Benders have a bit more energy but Gayngs will definitely pull people in thanks to the Bon Iver connection. Yeasayer vs. Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros is yet another tough choice. If you want the cultish, crowd-pleasing performance you'll get with Edward Sharpe, go that route. If you want something a bit more electronic and on the weirder side, Yeasayer is the one for you. The Flaming Lips vs. Band of Horses should be an easy choice if you've seen one band and not the other. If you've seen The Flaming Lips, you've seen about all there is to see with one of their shows. If you're a huge fan, you'll be there anyway, but if you're luke-warm, go see Band of Horses if only for the harmonies and mellow vibes. One of the biggest pulls for Sunday should be The National. Their most recent album, High Violet, is at the top of this year's releases and their performance is sure to be commanding. They are justified in having such a high bill and they are sure to keep you enamored.
