ACL Review: Florence + the Machine
Barefoot. Florence Welch took to the stage sans shoes Sunday night to close out the final weekend of ACL Fest. The crowd, many of who ditched other shows to post up near the front of her stage, cheered as white light carried opening song “What the Water Gave Me” into the sea of hot, sticky people.

ACL Review: Alt-J

ACL Review: Lord Huron
Sans the band’s usual ornate backdrop and set design on the ACL Fest mainstage, Lord Huron lived up to its royal moniker all the same. The Los Angelenos’ stylish pop, an orchestrated version of what you hear inside a conch shell, proved the perfection distraction from Sunday’s mid-afternoon scorch.
