Austin City Limits Festival 2016

I could never have dreamed of going to a three day music festival just a few years ago. However, Tamara and I have decided to do some of the things we've always talked about, but never done. That meant this year, we went to the Austin City Limits Festival. It exceeded all expectations.
ACL wristband
I don't know if I'm cool enough
These are the bands I saw (with a link to one song from their set):

Austin's Own Walker Lukins
I was happily surprised by Catfish and the Bottlemen and Nothing but Thieves
The Foals gave us some steady alt rock.
Radiohead did their thing, pushing the audience like Andy Kaufman.
Fun, fun, fun with Saint Motel
The Struts stole the day on Saturday. It was like watching Aerosmith, Queen, and the Cult.
Band of Horses provided some mellow jams.
Cage the Elephant They came to our town and burned the $%@#! down. Amazing, electrifying show.
Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats still sweating and cursing, led the revival.
The Legend: Willie Nelson. 83 years old and still doing it.

the crowds at the Austin City Limits festival were huge
The crowd built through the afternoon

What a time. Love Rock and Roll.

P.S. To people who don't live in Austin. Please stop moving here.
