The return of terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad rain made Saturday a muddy but fun mess. Thankfully, the downpours didn't dampen the spirits of the crowd on day two of ACL, but it did seem to thin out the herds. Aside from remembering how to walk in inches-deep goop like we did back at the Dillo-Dirted 2009 edition of the festival, the music and sights were as hilarious and hellacious as expected.

1. Rufus Wainwright's Voice Whether tackling his own new gospel-tinged work, or a Judy Garland tune, the sounds that comes from Rufus Wainwright's mouth hole are vastly-underrated. The man has haunting, sturdy pipes that should be heard by all. Come on guys, he's been doing this for twenty years now, get into it. CRAIG HLAVATY
