Tickets for the Austin City Limits Music Festival went on sale (again) at 12:01 this morning. We are definitely returning... Neko Case and Calexico rumors have me excited, and I've seen the Pixies were booked (which has me yawning, even moreso after hearing the recent live boots). No one else listed at Pollstar right now lights my fire, so feed me some rumors, people (I'm calling on you Austin folks, in particular).
Merlin is looking for powerpop bands to cover Palace's "I am a Cinematographer."
"'C'mon, wear it with your motorcycle boots. That's what Carolyn Mark would do,' he says, referring to the cool indie singer." Toronto's Globe and Mail tries out the "big skirt," the latest must-have fashion accessory.
NPR's Brook Gladstone explores "Chick-lit" and its sub-genres (African American chick-lit, Christian chick-lit. etc.).

OK...in addition to pixies:
franz ferdinand, the strokes, modest mouse, calexico, los lonely boys, possibly cat power
From TCB in the Austin Chronicle:
"Thankfully, some dogged legwork by the loyal cadre of 'TCB' spies makes it possible to provide some not-so-subtle hints in the following sentence: Being there at dawn in the lonesome, crowded West, Archduke Franz Ferdinand stroked his cal(ex)ico cat and moaned, 'O, what a lonely boy am I!' Make of that what you will."
Also, "Being there at dawn..." possibly means:
My Morning Jacket
Chick-lit.... makes me think of gum.
Someone at work dubbed it chiction. I like that one better.
I'm pretty sure "at dawn" means My Morning Jacket and "lonesome, crowded West" means Modest Mouse...
Got my tickets this past weekend. Hotel Intercontinental still have rooms available at a reasonable price. I got them even cheaper than adverstised by going through priceline ($100 a night). That was my first bid, so you may be able to do better than that.
