Dallas benefits, again, from being near Austin City Limits

Look at all the concerts ACL is leading our way this weekend (while ignoring the ugly side effects)!

But that means a smaller take in the profit the venue runs that night. And it means, more than likely, a bitter taste in the mouth of the band whenever they think of Dallas—unless, of course, its members are truly versed (not too likely) in the fact that this weekend's diluted crowds and rationed payments are the result of an above-average area concert calendar.

If someone were really, truly inspired to take in a bulk of these acts on the same weekend, they'd head to Austin for ACL. Or, at least, they should: It might be a little more expensive, but it'd be more convenient—and certainly more of an experience than driving around from venue to venue in Dallas would be (as if anyone's actually considering doing as much, which I doubt).

So, not to get all Debbie Downer on this otherwise phenomenal weekend of concerts, but as great as this weekend looks coming in, it's gonna be pretty nasty on the way out. That's just the unfortunate side effect of being so close to Austin, really.

Until, of course, Dallas gets a worthwhile festival of its own.

(No offense, Ozzfest.)
