Goodbye ACL, until next year!

The final day of ACL 2009 is upon us...sigh. What a festival it has been so far! Saturday was amazing. Grizzly Bear performed beautifully, and proved that they can really really sing. The Decemberists basically played the entirety of their new album, The Hazards of Love, and ROCKED OUT doing it (which is quite a thing for The Decemberists!). Lastly, Ghostland Observatory played an epic show, and brought out the UT marching band for "The Band Marches On" once again! We are so proud of our little hometown Ghostland for making it big and kicking ass at this huge show!

Here's what we consider our big picks for Sunday (it's a bit of a short list):

If you are going to Sunday, you have to see them. Unless you choose to see Dirty Projectors, which we would totally understand because again here ACL has totally dropped the ball--why are they at the same time?! Insanity! But our deep, summer-long obsession with P-Pit has decided that terrible dilemma for us. Passion Pit is one of the most creative and fun synth-indie-pop groups we've seen in quite a while, and we are sure they'll put on a great show. Get those grumpy ol' hipsters dancin'!

Another opposition, but this time it makes sense. Girl Talk is really cool, well-established, pop culture-infused mash-up band and Dan Auerbach (of The Black Keys) has a white-guy-with-actual-soul kind of sound. Both great! Take your pick!

And that rounds out ACL for little Tilly and Thom here. We hope you all had as much fun as we did this year (in the rain and not-hot weather!!), and we'll be bloggin' again soon.
