Some Band From Austin Beats Out Dentonites Vying For Final ACL Spot. Big Shocker.
Erin Austin and Andrew Tinker's Band headed down to Austin last night.
But, even with a bus-full of Dentonites, neither of the Denton-based artists who'd made it to this final round, Andrew Tinker nor Erin Austin, could beat the hometown crowd-supported winners of the event, The Bright Light Social Hour.
Pretty sure this is what happens every year, right? Bands from out of town get all amped about the concept, only to end up losing to some Austin band that packs the venue out with friends and fans...
At the very least, Tinker and Austin got some press and a gig in Austin out of the deal, though, so I guess it's a win-lose.
