I can only assume he snuck a peak at the ACL Fest Ad that will hit all of the major weekly rags on Thursday.
Thanks for the shout out, Bob.
I think the line up is strong as all get out, but Im sure a lot of people will hate it so...
Let the bitching begin...

4 Bands ACL Fest needs this year.
With big name rumors like Radiohead and Pearl Jam confirmed as not playing this years festival (and it looking less and less likely for DMB or a reunited Phish), I got to thinking about bands that need to be on this years roster. So here I go with, 4 bands that need to be on the list when ACL Fest releases the full roster, May 11th.
- The Raconteurs – How has Jack White gone this long without playing this festival? Now that the Flaming Lips have confirmed for this year, the #1 band that people tell me would “just make sense” is the White Stripes. But lets go one step further. I believe The Raconteurs have yet to play on
soil. Can you imagine the boost ACL Fest would get if it could sport the “first US festival appearance of The Raconteurs”? Seems like a match made in heaven. US
- Outkast – Their film, Idlewild comes out at the end of August. As does their new album that serves as a soundtrack to the film. No tour dates yet. This would be another huge get for ACL.
- Bruce Springsteen – This tour he is on right now has to be amazing. He has put together an 18 piece band to tour for his new album of Pete Seeger songs and if the live show is half as great as the album, it is a must see.
DixieChicks – This would be huge as well. New album soon. Somewhat of a coming out party after being so far from the radar for the past year. I am hard pressed to think of an artist or group from that needs this festival more this year. Texas
someone pointed out that the Raconteurs are playing Lollapalooza, so blah...
I still think they need to be there.
