The Preservation (11:20am, Austin Ventures stage)

Sunny pop harmonies, folk-y depth, and gorgeous rock led by former Weary Boys' singer Mario Matteoli.

Asleep at the Wheel (Noon, Lady Bird stage)

The charismatic kings of Western swing have been the first main stage band at every ACL.

Sons of Fathers (12:20pm, Austin Ventures stage)

Timeless roots rock built on the gospel harmonies of dual frontmen Paul Cauthen and David Beck.

Court Yard Hounds (2pm, Lady Bird stage)

The Dixie Chicks without Natalie, sisters Martie Maguire and Emily Robison ply sweet folk on July's second LP Amelita.

Mother Falcon (3:30pm, 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.

Okkervil River (5pm, Honda stage)

Mature, carefully crafted indie rock with heavy personal depth from sentimental frontman Will Sheff.

The Black Angels (5:30pm, Bud Light stage)

The hypnotic shepherds of modern psych rock mesmerize with evil drone and, lately, Sixties pop.
