GAyCL: Making Austin the Queer Music Capital of the World
As Austinites prep for the second weekend of that music festival on the south side of the river and mourn the demise of another (R.I.P. Sound on Sound), it’s important to remember the DIY, independent spirit that once infused Austin’s music festival scene.

Harry Styles’ Near Riotous Nostalgia
Harry Styles, 23, became this year’s most famous rock star because in time honored fashion he dared to care about teenage girls. Suited in pink satin with slicked back hair, the English heartthrob, Dunkirk soldier, and ex-One Direction singer proved to a sold-out Moody Theater on Wednesday night that letting go of your past isn’t always valid.

King Crimson’s Tony Levin
Reigning over Bass Concert Hall next Thursday, Oct. 19, King Crimson remains one of the few bands tagged “progressive rock” that actually progresses. While other acts ape early-Seventies sounds – even those that hail from the era – the British/American group led since 1969 by guitarist Robert Fripp keeps pushing into new realms.

SXSW Releases First Wave of 2018 Performers
For most of us, South by Southwest remains a distant concern – still five months away. For the conference’s music programmers, however, the culling of talent has been going on for months and now the unloading begins.

Running with the Sun Machine

ACL Review: Killers
Credit the Killers for dispensing with necessities early. The Las Vegas outfit opened their Sunday night headlining set with the umpteenth Tom Petty cover of ACL Fest, unloading “American Girl” in mundane, if sincere, homage. More surprising was following it up with “Mr. Brightside,” which delivered their biggest hit early to jolt a weekend-worn crowd.

ACL Review: Gorillaz
On Sunday, the Gorillaz were the only band during the first weekend of ACL Fest 2017 that made me forget where I was. Not that they were the lone act to log a transcendent performance throughout the first weekend of Austin’s largest music festival.

ACL Review: Run the Jewels
During their monster set at the Honda stage early Sunday evening, Atlanta/Brooklyn rap duo Run the Jewels talked a lot in jest, especially when El-P went on about how difficult it is for a chubby man to wear a faded, black denim vest. That led Killer Mike to joke, “We wanna see your boobs and butt.”

ACL Review: First Aid Kit
Five years ago, First Aid Kit played a modest, early afternoon Friday of ACL. Our review was positive, focusing on the young Swedish sisters’ promise, but noted there was room for growth. This time around, in front of several thousand people on Sunday around supper time, FAK’s set proved near-perfect.
