Saddling up for Austin City Limits

I’m running around like a very messy chicken with her head cut off getting ready for Austin City Limits, Oct. 7-10. It’ll be my 2nd year, first as press- I’m pretty excited. Last year Dan’s band Clutch played, and that was amazing to behold.

But before you start hating, let me say that this is bright spot in a string of exciting disasters in the Rock household- I tore my rotator cuff, and we had a flood that soaked the upstairs bathroom down through the kitchen. (Imagine waking up to your six year old saying, “Mommy! Water’s coming through the CEILING!” And you’re like, SO SURE it must be a bad dream- yours or hers. But, ummm, no.)

So I have spent countless hours with icepacks on my shoulder this fall dreaming of Zilker Park, of Charlie Mars and yes, of Vampire Weekend (stop judging!) and the many, many other talented folk that are expected to draw 75,000 plus fans A DAY this weekend. In preparation, I give you pictorial highlights from ACL last year- despite the mud and  the dillo dirt debacle (don’t ask- think soilent green, but sewage) still one of my favorite weekends of all time.
