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.
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
