Austin City Limits schedule grids are up

Bloody great day today, first the Live8 TV thing, now this...

The Austin City Limits schedule grids have been posted! Yes, I'm going with a bunch of friends... You can view/download the full grid here.

Glancing over the grid briefly, here's my personal tentative schedule:

Day 1: Friday 9/23/05

  • 1:30pm: tbd
  • 2:30pm: Steve Earl or Gov't Mule
  • 3:30pm: Mates of State or Mindy Smith or neither...
  • 4:30pm: Robert Earl Keen or Lucinda Williams or neither...
  • 5:30pm: Spoon or Thievery Corp. (this is though one)
  • 6:30pm: tbd
  • 7:30pm: Keane
  • 8:30pm: The Black Crowes

Day 2: Saturday 9/24/05

  • 11:45am: Tegan and Sara (this one's pretty early, doubtful I'll make it)
  • 12:30pm: The Futureheads
  • 1:30pm: Kasabian
  • 2:50pm: Nine Black Alps
  • 3:30pm: The Frames or Martin Sexton
  • 4:30pm: Death Cab for Cutie
  • 5:30pm: The Fiery Furnaces
  • 6:30pm: Jet

Day 3: Sunday 9/25/05

  • 12:00pm: Ambulance LTD
  • 1:45pm: M83
  • 2:30pm: Doves
  • 3:30pm: Kaiser Chiefs or The Bravery (that's a tough one)
  • 4:30pm: The Arcade Fire
  • 5:30pm: The Decemberists or Bob Mould
  • 6:30pm: Franz Ferdinand or maybe Wilco (very slim chance)
  • 7:45pm: The Black Keys
  • 8:30pm: Coldplay

Of these, I'm most excited to see:

  1. The Arcade Fire (seing them for the 1st time)
  2. Oasis (seeing them for the 9th! time)
  3. Kasabian (seeing them for the 1st time)
  4. Coldplay (seeing them for the 3rd time)
  5. The Fiery Furnaces (seing them for the 1st time)

Of course I will further revise my personal calendar as the event draws closer... These American music festivals are pretty organized...

Anybody else going (except for my group)? Give me a shout if any of you other party people would like to meet up down there...

I'm also working on a press-pass for this event...
