"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)


2007 ACL lineup is out!

Here's the 2007 Austin City Limits Festival lineup. Quick thoughts before I get some sleep:
  • Bob Dylan is like Billy Joe Shaver, he's either on or he's off. Here's hoping he'll be on.
  • Wilco! Again!
  • Steve Earle, the Decemberists, M.I.A., Regina Spektor, Joseph Arthur, Billy Joe Shaver, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Del McCoury - This is actually a lineup with something for everybody.

Overall I am pleased. Now if they'll just not schedule everything good at the same time like they did last year, when all 18 bands I wanted to see played in the same 2-hour time block on Saturday afternoon.

Ben Kweller is a good live show. Haven't heard his new stuff really. And you're totally right about Bob Dylan, who I have seen twice - he's either on or off but he's always unintelligible!

Emily, I think you should come visit. We can take your kiddos to see The Sippy Cups. Any band with that name has to be good.
