Along with Pete's takes on some of Friday's biggest sets here at ACL, we already brought you shots of Phoenix, Raphael Saadiq and The Yeah Yeah Yeahs -- so before we head on out for another day in the front row (for the first three songs anyway, before they kick us out), here's a roundup of the rest of the day's acts.

Look for a festival slideshow and plenty of crowd shots here soon, but for now, after the jump: the best of Friday onstage in Zilker Park.
