We arrived for this Life List item on Thursday and have been putting in 16 hour days ever since. I’ve overloaded my iPhone’s battery for two days in a row attempting to tweet, Instagram and FB all my experiences and thoughts. Austin City Limits Music Festival is an overwhelming experience, as most music festivals probably are. 70,000 people a day, about 7 stages rotating from 11 am to 10 pm, mostly half simultaneously at any given moment. I’ve never seen what 70,000 people look like and I’m not convinced I ever want to again… There. Are. People. Everywhere. But I’m glad I’m here.
I’ve discovered some excellent music and gotten to hear some old favorites live and in person.
Highlights from Friday were:
(Brandi Carlile and Ray LaMontagne)
And after my phone died: The Cave Singers, Santigold, Bright Eyes and Coldplay.
Highlights from Saturday will have to wait. Sleep becons.
