Among my Top 10 Favorite Things - books, movies, coffee, rain, fall & winter, and live music - especially concerts in small venues. This Saturday we got to experience a TON of rain and live music @ the Austin City Limits Festival.
There are a few things you can always be sure of at ACL - it will be super crowded and you're going to get dirty - no way around that one. This year was especially dirty - it poured the entire day! There were only two moments when the rain paused, we were soaking wet all day long. Shoes were full of mud and squished around every time you took a step, your hands couldn't stay dry, and forget about your hair. Despite best efforts to contain the mud to your tennis shoes - it got every where.
BUT the bands played on and they were amazing. We saw Citizen Cope, Grizzly Bear, Mos Def, the Decemberists, and of course Dave Matthews.
