Good news, agorraphobes and computer jockeys everywhere! Since you’re not able to get out to the Austin City Limits festival, the Internet is bringing it to you all weekend!
YouTube, pairing with C3 Presents, powered by Dell, is bringing you the fine streaming fantasy of such downbeat artists as Jack White (now sans creepy White Stripes sister/wife/drummer), Red Hot Chili Peppers, Florence + the Machine, and Mr. Iggy Pop and his Stooges. Also, the Roots. Yeah, they’re a band when they’re not on that Jimmy Fallon show. Plus, if you like up and comers, there’s gonna be a whole shit load of them. I, on the other hand, wait for a band to get big and then talk about how much their new stuff sucks. You say tomato, I say new tomato stuff sucks. So go to the webcast at youtube.com/aclfestival. You’ll probably encounter less drunk and horny members of the opposite sex, but at least at home, you won’t have to pay $8 for a bottled water.
