The good old days, the honest man
The restless heart, the Promised Land
A subtle kiss that no one sees
A broken wrist and a big trapeze
Oh well, I don't mind, you don't mind
Cause I don't shine if you don't shine
Before you go, can you read my mind?
ACL is over for another year. They expanded the festival this time, throughout a bigger portion of Zilker Park, adding another medium-big stage, spreading out the sound for less overlap, and allowing a second area for eating and merch buying. AND they had awesome outhouses that flushed, were never out of paper, and the line was never very long. Great job, ACL! We were suffering from allergies and didn't hit as many shows as usual, but still saw some really great, memorable sets. A few highlights: Crystal Castles, Skepta, Foster the People, Car Seat Headrest, Ice Cube, Tove Lo, Day Wave, RKS, Run the Jewels, Gorillaz, and the set I was most looking forward to, the festival closer and they did not disappoint: The Killers. I hadn't realized how many of their hits translate spectacularly for a stadium/festival crowd - it was so much fun and is now ranked as one of my top concerts ever. Haters gonna hate (Keith), but I thought that such a sweet show earned the band another spot on TMIS. Also - if you haven't checked out the new album yet (I posted "The Man" before it was released, I think) you should, it's got a handful of gems (but esp "Run for Cover").
