Summer Music Festivals: Austin City Limits

September 12, 2007 at 12:05 PM | by | ()

As the summer music festival season draws to a close, it's only fitting this show came in a little slow. Austin's other big music festival, Austin City Limits, comes to town this weekend. It's like SXSW, but, you know, for old people.

For three days, on eight stages, 130 bands will perform in Zilker Park. While conversations backstage tend toward Bob Dylan and John Prine discussing how they're spending their Social Security checks, festival organizers have attempted to revamp the festival with some young blood. In addition to Dylan, this year's headliners include Bjork, The White Stripes, The Killers, Wilco, Arcade Fire, and a bunch of other whippersnappers.
