Not to get too meta on you, but we spent the morning having a quick look around at some of Austin’s finer music blogs, and here’s what we found:
First of all, several sharp people are letting you know about ACL afterparties, among them the incomparable Austin Eavesdropper, The Peen Scene(extensive!), and Mr. Michael Barnes at Austin 360. Check ‘em out.
Covert Curiosity picked up our considerable slack and reported recently on the local Austin bands headed to CMJ: “Local bands who will make the trip to represent Austin include The Frontier Brothers, Pompeii, Reckless Kelly,Ringo Deathstarr, Suzanna Choffel, My Education, Bird Peterson, The Great Nostalgic, Moth!Fight!, Corto Maltese, Billy Harvey, Wolfgang Gartner,Loxsly, Alpha Rev, The Story Of, Ume, VEGA, and The Black & White Years.” (You’ll have to link to CC and scroll down for the full post.)
Ultra8201 posted up the full upcoming ACL TV schedule, which will include local luminaries like Okkervil River, Band of Heathens, Steve Earle, and some singer/songwriter dude named ‘Willie Nelson’.
There is more! There is more! But we have to generate our own, too! Have a look around; link link; the rivers run high.
