Austin bands at ACL Fest, Saturday, Oct. 12
Whiskey Shivers (11:15am, Austin Ventures stage)
Barefoot quintet raises hell, glasses, and your spirits with their good-natured thrashgrass.
My Jerusalem (Noon, Austin Ventures stage)
Big Easy transplants, fronted by the belligerently entertaining local Jeff Klein. "Postmodern Southern Gothic soul."
Mother Falcon (12:30pm, Austin Kiddie Limits stage)
Austin's indie orchestra teams up with children's entertainer Tim and the Space Cadets, whose songs about superheroes, puppets, and snow days can be heard at your local Chuck E. Cheese.

The heroic, mid-Eighties guitar rock mothership of Austin legends Jon Dee Graham and Alejandro Escovedo reunited last year in the wake of SXSW Creative Director Brent Grulke's death.

Tri-note finger-picking, suitcase-stomping, one-man band melts hearts and tells strange stories.
Bright Light Social Hour (7pm, Austin Ventures stage)
After breaking out locally with the irresistible electro-rock hook "Back and Forth," BLSH have proven themselves on the national stage with their big-time live show.
