The second band I'd like to highlight in my ACL (Austin City Limits) blog series is a repeat offender. The brother-sister duo from Australia was featured in a Music Monday Blog several months back (click the link to check out the songs chosen for that blog). Angus and Julia Stone will be kicking off my 2010 ACL weekend. They are pretty much the reason I decided to go this year, well and Matt & Kim. Angus and Julia will be playing Friday afternoon at 3:30. Go see them!
ACL (Austin City Limits) is just around the corner. Over the next couple of days leading up to ACL, I will feature some kickass bands that I am excited to see. I probably should have thought of this Music Monday theme a few weeks earlier, so I could space them out. Oh well! You Live and Lear, right!
Today's pick is "Nights Like These" by Lucero. If you are inspired to hear more, check out the albums Tennessee and Nobody's Darlings.
FYI, I want a tee shirt with that symbol on it. I gotta make that happen.
Finally!!!!! She's getting some recognition. I have a feeling after last nights MTV Video Music Awards, we will be seeing...or shall I say hearing, a lot more from Florence and The Machine. She is brilliant and amazing and fun and english (some of the best stuff comes from across the pond)! Please, sit back and enjoy my favorite Florence and The Machine jam.
Back in my hay day I loved everything MTV. Now, eh not so much. Well, except for "Real World/Road Rules Challenge." I used to love the MTV Awards Shows, but now I just get annoyed. However, I will be watching this years Video Music Awards because my girl Chelsea Handler will be hosting. She is hands down my favorite celebrity. I want to be just like her when I grow-up. Maybe not just like her, but funny like her.
