ACL Live Review: Shawn Mendes
Shawn Mendes is any major label's dream. He’s charming enough to distract a large Sunday audience from the thick Austin air, charismatic enough get all the tweens screaming “Treat You Better,” and hip enough to prompt UT Longhorn quarterback Sam Ehlinger and company onstage during his set. Did we mention he also sports an amazing voice?

ACL Live Review: Moses Sumney
ACL fosters euphoria, but dance parties hardly jibe with a sexual predator on the highest court and global warming hell arriving in 2040.

ACL Live Review: Lil Wayne
Rumors of gunshots at Atlanta’s A3C Festival brought a recent Lil Wayne appearance to a swift end. ACL Fest could not, would not be spoiled by mere cocksure bros and vomiting, underaged girls. The unusually grand return of Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr. continued at his punched-in, 7pm HomeAway slot on Saturday.

ACL Live Review: Chvrches
Not all heroes wear capes. Besides calling Ted Cruz a “cock popsicle,” Lauren Mayberry loosened her political ennui in an expletive-filled diatribe before dedicating anti-love ode “Leave a Trace” to women survivors of sexual assault and abuse. “This is for all the ladies who have survived something,” lamented the Chvrches singer on Saturday.
