That's more barbecue and Shiners and icy cold margaritas for the rest of you

For like the fourth year in a row, I’m missing the big Austin City Limits festival back home. And the line-up this year is pretty sick.

And of course many of the bands are swingin’ by the campus to record actual ACL segments for TV so mom and dad are gonna be seeing the likes of Wilco and stuff in air conditioned comfort.

I’m not jealous though at all. Seriously. Not a bit.

Oh, and recently someone made me a couple of arguably the best mixes of music I’ve ever heard. They included this little diamond from a Danish chick named Trolle Siebenhaar. The song’s called “Sweet Dogs.” It's a winner.

Beautiful, right? There’re a lot more gems that I’ll have to leak out in the days to come. Right now, I’m off to do a little market research. Offsite.

Check out Live from Soho by Kings of Leon. It's an itunes exclusive EP. The first cut "Knocked Up" is fantastic.

That album/EP is great. And yeah, you could play "knocked up" in underarm farts and it would still sound fantastic.

Yep, last night we saw Arcade Fire perform before 300 enthusiastic fans and it was just about the most fun taping we've seen in a while. This band is amazing--versatile, personable, and great music played on so many different instruments with such spirit. I can see why you're a fan.
