    I've always wanted to do this and may be in position to now.


    Is it as cool as it sounds?

    I was all ready to go in 2003 and then I got religion and took The Queen to NYC on an open weekend during football season. I bring that up to her often, which is just another reason why I'm an asshole.

    ACL Festival? Sounds like a conference for knee surgeons.

    Usually a cool, very eclectic lineup, and many of the artists tape Austin City Limits for PBS while in town. Last year's headliners were Bob Dylan, Bjork, Arcade Fire and White Stripes (who had to cancel on short notice due to Meg White's existential crisis or whatever). There's usually also some blues, alt-country, Willie Nelson, Lucinda Williams, etc.

    I don't know a thing about the ACL Festival, but I am an expert in the Rotator Cuff Festival. :)

    I bet you Wendell Davis is the headliner.
