Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

We're just hours away from the end of the ACL, but the number of good bands left to play in day three is staggering. Band of Horses and the Flaming Lips are up next--and bleeding into the sky here is Robert Earl Keen's "The Road Goes On Forever."

Before those kick off, and while Pete is not being amused by Yeasayer, check out this slideshow of day two fans (and Deadmau5 and Muse back-to-back performance). We guarantee some shots of fans igniting their brains with electronica and heavy rock. Oh Austin, you are so epic.

Check out the full slideshow: Hippies vs. Hipsters and follow @DC9 at Night up-to-the-minute updates.

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.
