Austin City Limits- One Of The Happiest Times Of The Year.

Austin City Limits
Happy Times Are Here Again!

Fall in Texas brings with it some of the happiest events of the year.

1. Kerbey Lane Cafe starts serving pumpkin pancakes again. It’s a holy thing.

2. Austin City Limits. One of my favorite things ever. Live music, Austin food, beautiful weather (except for last year…), it’s just a spectacular weekend. If you are coming, then welcome! If you aren’t then I promise to feel sorry for you because you are really missing out. This event over the years has let me enjoy some of my favorite bands live and it’s lets me be introduced to completely new bands to love.

3. The end of humidity.

I added that third one because I feel like lists need to be at least 3 things. But really, what I want to talk about is ACL. It’s this weekend and I’m really excited but also nervous. Nervous because this is the first time in the history of me going to ACL that I will be going it alone. I usually don’t mind doing things alone at all but this is one thing I have always done with at least 3 other people, so this year will be a completely new experience for me. Sure, I will probably meet up with a few friends there but mostly I will be on my own (because they are choosing Muse tomorrow night and though it was a tough decision I choose M.I.A). But the music beckons, you know? And ACL beckons. And I respond to the call. Also, I think this will be a very liberating ACL for me. Like, I shouldn’t have to miss out on things I want to do because none of my friends are available. I am a grown woman. I do what I want.  (Picture me with an air of astounding independence).

Anway, that’s me. I would like to share with you all some of my favorite bands that are playing this year and that I think you should get to know if you don’t already.  Happy Friday, and a very Merry ACL to one and all!!!!!!

  1. Keep Austin Weird. Confusing non-Texans everyday!

    These bands need to make it out to Phoenix for a music festival! Have a fantastic time. I’m pretty jealous of Saturday’s lineup.

    1. I’m sure they will make it out there sometime soon. Keep Austin Weird is one of those things you have to come to Austin to understand, but on a basic level it’s about supporting local Austin businesses- which have a flavor and atmosphere completely unique to Austin. Can you tell I love it here?

    I wish I could come. The pumpkin pancakes sound interesting (I know, they’re not ACL related). I’ve never had pumpkin pie, or pumpkin pancakes, or pumpkin anything, I hope some day I do 🙂

    Now, tell me something: what does “roofie laced” mean? Ordinarily I wouldn’t ask, because googling it would give me loads of urban dictionary entries, but google has sort of failed me this time 😦 I found the expression being used, but not a definition per se. Help us English-As-A-Second-Language people out 🙂
