Rub it in, why don't ya?

Mom and Wilco's Jeff Tweedy from Saturday's ACL taping.

Good lord, right? Who's cooler than that?

So my folks saw the Arcade Fire on Friday night. Then they saw Wilco on Saturday afternoon. (I should probably note here it's not like they're big fans of either band but they see everyone that comes through ACL, regardless. So pictures like this are either taken as an extremely thoughtful gesture given my fan status with Wilco or as some sort of attempt to stick it to me that I'm not there! I'm assuming it's not the latter.). And there were others tapings over the weekend of course given the influx of bands into Austin for the big fest. I think the other big ones were Crowded House, Regina Spektor, Bloc Party and then Lucinda Williams tomorrow night.

What's next, LCD Soundsystem opening up for the Arcade Fire?

Oh wait, that's here this Thursday.

Touche, Mom and Dad. Touche.

Omigosh, my brush with fame! I just mailed you a whole envelope full of souvenirs from the taping--you'll be overdosed on Wilco. But, hey, it's fun to be on your blog.

Mo-om! You're killing my blog game! Everyone's gonna think I'm a total nerd who writes this thing from his basement and whose only readers are his paretns!

Just kidding.

And Sarah, the Paramount's got some good stuff. That ain't nothin' to sneeze at.
