Pain in the ACL
Wikipedia, of all places, contains a list of bands rumored to be playing the Austin City Limits Music Festival in early fall; among those on the list are Radiohead, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Beck and Bob Dylan. Pollstar also has a few more official confirmations, among them Son Volt, the Flaming Lips, Jimmie Dale Gilmore and Kasey Chambers. Or if you really wanna go nuts, the official ACL site is hosting some kinda scavenger hunt that will reveal seven performers for this year's shindig, for which three-day tix are $100. (The grand prize winner of the contest gets a VIP pass.) Today's clue: "This group's latest release cites drum licks copped from Detroit Rock City." Knock yourself out. --Robert Wilonsky
