"Things You Wouldn't Know If We Didn't Blog Intermittently."
I live in Austin and I've been to the Austin City Limits Music Festival the past few years.The first day of the festival, it is customary that Asleep at the Wheel(sans Willie) plays first at about noon. Last year the festival was a mud pit on Saturday on Sunday. On Friday though, the weather was perfect and I watched Asleep at the Wheel with only maybe a hundred other people. Everyone was barefoot and some people were dancing in the grass. It's one of my favorite memories from living in Austin.
Hey, this isn't fair: I defy you to find a band who is 25% as good as this in any Austin bar on any night of the year that is not ACL or SXSW. As someone who moved to Austin recently, I am nothing but disappointed in the "Live Music Capital of the World".
