Day Tres

Alright so it's day three of ACL, probably the hottest. There isn't a cloud in the sky. It's killer. So today I've seen Rachael Yamagata who spilled beer on her monitor and some of M83's set (funny because both of those bands were the ones I wrote articles on Out the Other's ACL previews. Coming up today are Doves, Rilo Kiley (who are playing right now..I can hear 'em), Kaiser Chiefs, Arcade Fire, the Decemberists and Franz Ferdinand. Bound to be the best day yeah.

Yesterday I caught the Fiery Furnaces signing in the Waterloo tent. Lucky for us, the FF's had brought vinyl copies of their new record Rehearsing My Choir along with them. So I got them to sign that. Stay tuned because tomorrow when I get back to Utah I'll be announcing a contest that may or may not have to do with the Fieries.

The Sons and Daughters, Decemberists and Built to Spill were at La Zona Rosa last night. I enjoyed the S&D's set again (I found out too late that they'd filled in for Missy Higgins yesterday around noon at the festival). The Decemberists were superb again. They had us all sit down and said they'd see how it worked today. It'll be interesting. Other highlights include Colin singing "A Cautionary Tale" to a small kid in the front row (if you've heard the song you'll find it funny I hope). He also let the kid play his guitar for a bit during the infamous duel part of "The Chimbley Sweep." I'm really glad I've had so many chances to see them this weekend because they're so entertaining. I didn't stick around for Built to Spill. I've heard one CD and someone said they were pretty boring yesterday at the festival and we were tired.

EDIT: It's 6:45 and Franz Ferdinand is on. Caught some of Arcade Fire's set and all of the Decemberists. They were great. Expect a giant super picture post tomorrow of ACL and all the other aftershows and stuff.
