ACL Live Review: Odesza
Odesza are a couple of knob twisters, and they know how boring that is to watch. Thus, Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight didn’t just dance around like bass music maniacs in their skinny jeans on Friday night. They came girded by three giant screens overflowing with morphing shapes of alien lands, crystals, and other geometric designs in spectacular colors.

ACL Live Review: Brockhampton
“It’s all about Brockhampton, fuck friends,” one young Brockhampton setgoer said to another on Friday as the two traded reasons why they were at the Miller Lite stage early and by themselves amongst a sea of hipsters, jersey-wearing frat bros, and high schoolers.

ACL Live Review: Father John Misty
Almost resurrected as a dirty messiah of awful relationships, Josh Tillman showed up at his Friday ACL slot dressed in a white suit, shirt, and jacket. Starting at 6:45pm sharp on the Barton Springs stage, the indie rocker known as Father John Misty and his black-clad septet, plus a string section, launched into his trademark, highbrow sardonics.

ACL Live Review: Khalid
“That’s my soooong!” rang out as a common squeal from the fresh faces in the crowd. They were not, in fact, the songs of seemingly ever teenager in Zilker Park. They were Khalid Robinson’s.

ACL Live Review: Jungle
UK childhood friends Josh Lloyd-Watson and Tom McFarland – J and T – formed Jungle in 2013, an electronic affair connecting the dots from Daft Punk to Dam-Funk. On Friday in Zilker Park, the one-time bedroom project came alive onstage as a six-piece ensemble for a steamy, late-afternoon set mining throwback boogie and modern disco grooves.

ACL Live Review: Greta Van Fleet
A long time ago in a musical galaxy far, far away, a German act named Kingdom Come sounded so like Led Zeppelin they were dubbed Kingdom Clone. Michigan partridge family the Kiszkas – Josh (v), Jake (g), Sam (b) – isn’t Greta Van Fraud no matter what every last review cuts and pastes. In no known universe do Zep and Gret intersect.
