Austin City Limits 2010: Day Three Photos & Review

Day Three of Austin City Limits was on Sunday, October 10th, and it was way too hot. Sensible event-goers were hiding in every bit of shade they could scrounge up.

Austin City Limits 2010: Day Two Photos & Review

On Saturday, October 9th, of Austin City Limits I was ready. I knew the layout. I knew which bands I was going to see.

The glowing afternoon light reflected off the skyscrapers of downtown Austin on Friday, October 8th. Day one of Austin City Limits was perfect festival weather, and the crowd was mellow and friendly.

WORDS: Q Manning Day Three started with a wish: please, keep the rain away. The Alamo Drafthouse had just hosted the best film festival ever, its annual Fantastic Fest, and Paul, like many of the attendees, had been struck by the dreaded “fantasticFlu.” This left me as the sole photographer. The forecast dictated a 94% […]

Austin City Limits (2009) Day 2 Photos and Review!

WORDS: Q Manning You’d be hard-pressed to imagine a way that Day Two of ACL Fest could have been different from Day One. Whereas the day before had everyone putting on sunblock and buying cowboy hats/sunglasses (I know I had to), Day Two created an ocean of umbrellas and ponchos. After the first day, I […]

Austin City Limits (2009) Day 1 Photos and Review!

WORDS: Q Manning Day One of ACL was about as picturesque as you could imagine. The sun was out, the grass was lush and the party had started, because, when you get down to it, that’s all any music festival really is. Great food, music, a sea of cowboy hats and and scantily clad genders […]

The Dead Weather

It cracks me up how so many bands do the dark, dreary, I’m gonna scare you kind of steez. That whole look has become quite stale. Nonetheless, The Dark Weather should be pretty badass .  If you haven’t heard, Jack White (of White Stripes) has formed yet another power project, consisting of Alison Mosshart (of […]
