Austin in Sept. anyone?

Hey y'all.

I just bought my Austin City Limits music festival tickets (Sept. 15-17). Not cheap per se ($140 total including fees and shipping), but when you consider the sheer number of bands that you can see over the course of 3 days, it ain't too bad either. Here are the highlights, in no particular order. (Actually I just sort of went top to bottom, left to right.)

(click here for full lineup)

Willie Nelson
The Flaming Lips
Cat Power
The New Pornographers
Wolf Parade
OLIVER F'ING MTUKUDZI (this is going to definitely rock)
Okkervil River
Ted Leo
TOM PETTY AND THE MUTHAFUCKIN HEATBREAKERS
The Shins
Iron and Wine
NICKLE CREEEEEEEEEEEK

So what're you waiting for? I can hook up a place to stay. There are free buses all day long. Let me know...

If my bank account wasn't completely sucked dry from the Europe trip and buying Rachel a second engagement ring, I'd say we should come down...

But it is.

Heh I hear ya. I realized that I can't really go anywhere for a while so this is my personal compromise. Airline tickets are expensive as hell these days...
