Football has kicked off, temperatures are slowly but steadily dropping and concert season has commenced. You may have taken note of the variety of artists making their way through Dallas and the surrounding area, marking the arrival of Austin City Limits which begins this weekend and for the first time will offer a second weekend October 11-13. (That’s right, you’re not forced to choose between your swaying hipster-self and your pigskin-throwing devotion.)
Johnny and I are once again headed southbound 35 to visit brother Joey, roommate Stuart, and the rest of Austin while we meander from stage to stage, Torchy’s Tacos and Sweet Leaf Tea in hand. ACL always draws a variety of solid artists, both established and up-and-coming and I’ve narrowed down a few of my favorites, and [in my humble opinion] some of their best songs for your listening pleasure. So whether you want to brush up before you hit Zilker Park one (or both) of the next two weekends, or whether you just want a new playlist to get you closer to the weekend, check out Blank Canvas Does ACL 2013.
