If yesterday was today, a 47 degree Sunday of @aclfestival would have been one for the ages.
Did Travis Scott fans muster zero claps for Shaq’s cameo because a Shaq cameo is corny or because they’re too young to recognize Shaq?

Jeez. From the crowd size, you’d think Lil’ Wayne wrote “Yesterday” and “Blackbird”. #aclfestival
Genuinely curious what Austin company/individual paid for and hosted a private Kings Of Leon show on a giant stage at Seaholm last night. Anyone know? twitter.com/kolfanblog/sta…
Same people having fun with Kanye yucked it up over videos of Amy Winehouse and Scott Weiland flailing around onstage twitter.com/dereksheen/sta…

Traditionally at music festivals the silent disco is the leading crime scene for cellphone theft. Distracted dancers in a tight space... twitter.com/austin_police/…
Is it heresy to think the Linklater ad was a snooze? This would have been the time for a Tarantino homage, no?
My interview at @aclfestival for @ACL_RADIO with @JanelleMonae - where we talk mid-terms, career progression and tolerance. Janelle Monáe [Interview ACL 2018] | Austin City Limits Radio youtu.be/EAZ-4tjujAA via @YouTube
Hopeful thought: this is an elaborate setup for a new episode of Intervention. And he accepts their offer of treatment. Real thought: This is totally real. We’re so screwed. twitter.com/nytimes/status…
Tonight’s @JanelleMonae @acltv performance? Easily one of the top- 5 across 25 years of attending tapings. And I have every reason to believe the energy is gonna translate to TV. https://t.co/1NCFYkOQj4

RT @JasStanford: Y’all, RBG created precedent for this when she slapped a guy who she thought was Sufjan Stevens at a Starbucks.
The latest @TexasMonthly National Podcast Of Texas is my super-timely conversation w/ @mmckinnon where we talk Kavanaugh (who he knows from when they both worked for George W), Beto, and Mueller. texasmonthly.com/politics/mark-…
I’ve seen Robert Plant a dozen or more times in various configurations over the years, but his voice is especially great right now. My advice is beg, steal, borrow to see tonight’s last of the 3 @acllive shows. This is from last night: https://t.co/DO3J0RlQ1F
Overheard @acllive security trying to track down the guy in balcony section 5 who brought his own maracas to the Robert Plant show. Worse still, he’s apparently playing offtime and bothering his neighbors. I hope he’s found and somehow publicly humiliated.
Update: The entirety of @WillieNelson's new "Vote Em' Out" live from last night's Beto rally: youtube.com/watch?time_con…
Some of @WillieNelson’s new “Vote Em’ Out” from the Beto rally: https://t.co/uXQOUC4C56
Just came from watching a terrific q&a with @amyklobuchar at @TexasTribune’s Open Congress- which is totally free and on Congress Ave. Even w/ rain Open Congress now ranks alongside @texasbookfest as best/smartest downtown free event. https://t.co/yitgU2A3At
Watching the hearings, I often wondered what @sarahhepola - who wrote a terrific memoir about blackout drinking- was thinking. Now we know: twitter.com/sarahhepola/st…
I am a @TexasTribune supporter but what they’ve done bagging virtually every metered parking spot w/in a 5-block radius of the capital for their boutique festival is outrageous. Does every badge come with parking? Gross. Permit map: arcgis.com/apps/webappvie… https://t.co/75zhJQY02N
I’m the resident interrogator for a new @hansonmusic docuseries. Latest episode arrived today: twitter.com/hansonmusic/st…

He was bad for women and bad for progress before any of this. And now we know he has serious bias and think conspiratorially.

This is a pretty great magazine cover- one of the best of the year without a Trump theme? On the other hand, 3,2,1... before the photoshop people put his face on the pumpkin. twitter.com/AlexSteinman/s…
You don’t need a wire. This press conference is more than enough.
Does anyone remember what year @IronAndWine played Gallery Lombardi during SXSW? Strolling down memory lane today. How did we all not die from the beauty and ache of the music from that era?
 
I don’t know if this helps, but I just checked and it’s not on my calendar from the summer of 1982

24 hours later, still kicking myself for not poking my head downstairs into the @jackopierce show at @3TENaustin before Jesus Lizard at @acllive so I could be the only person on the planet to have seen em’ back-to-back in one night. #zerofancrossover

This is like a hostage video without video
Yow just waded deep into the audience at the @acllive Jesus Lizard show. Normally in a pic like this you’d be able to see a frontman hoisted overhead, but this crowd’s old enough to collectively decide not to risk a herniated disc injury. https://t.co/ZxAwj9txFb
