ACL - Quick Review (my ACL retirement)
Went to ACL for the 4th straight year. This being my final, probably. It's just too much buck for bang. It's now being taken over by middle schoolers. Never seen so many young people. Maybe I'm just getting super old (30). The lineup is not as good as it was when I was there years ago and all the artist I want to see usually conflict with artists I want to see. Plus, I always seem to catch some head cold when it's all said and done.
This doesn't mean there were some great acts there and I saw pretty much everyone I wanted to see. But it is hard to go from one end of the park to the other..case in point; yesterday moving from Two Door Cinema Club to Die Antwoord. What a nightmare!
So this might be last year at ACL unless I can score the $50 tickets. I did find some free parking this year and at a reeasonable spot.
Best bands I caught, in no particular order:
Iggy and the Stooges
Two Door Cinema Club
Tegan and Sara
