Contests, Events, Indie | AUSTIN CITY LIMITS 2012 RECAP

Posted by on October 17, 2012

Austin City Limit’s promising lineup resulted in a weekend that was, without a question, one for the books. The sold-out festival denied no music lover. From toddlers on their parents’ shoulders to fist pumping grandpas, hippies carrying flags made out of bras to Natalie Portman and Ryan Gosling, the experience was as enticing to see as it was to hear. In the time that I wasn’t chowing down on truffle mac and cheese and watermelon topped with warm goat cheese and Pop Rocks (yes, it’s a real thing), or indulging in unicorn Texas T-shirts, I managed to witness some of today’s, but also yesterday’s, most impressive musicians. Every performance left me in a state of awe, thinking it must be true what they say in the South: God blessed Texas.
