What About This Two Weekend Deal?

Good morning, Punxsutawney. Rise and shine, campers. It's 6am and that was Sonny & Cher with "I Got You Babe." Don't forget your sunscreen, 'cause it's waaarm out there today. It's warm out there every day! And you know, you can expect travel delays today with that, you know, that ACL thing. And you know, there's another reason why today is especially exciting. The big question on everyone's ChapSticked lips: Will the Cure's Robert Smith see his shadow? Punxsutawney Bob! That's right, woodchuck-chuckers – it's ... Groundhog Day! That means two weekends of (almost) the same lineup of all-stars at Zilker Park for the Austin City Limits Music Festival and thus two Chronicle music supplements. Same suppie? Not quite. (Almost) the same interviewees both weeks, but different interviews. This week: record reviews. Next week: live shots from weekend one, all of which will live on our ACL landing page (austinchronicle.com/acl) as tweeted by @AusChronMusic. Think Smith will see his shadow? Six more weeks of local music festivals if he does!
