I just got the email about the 2008 ACL Festival lineup (full list available here).
Things that standout to me:
Big names include: Foo Fighters, Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, Beck, John Fogerty, and The Raconteurs.
Smaller, but cool names include: The Mars Volta, Gnarles Barkley, Robert Early Keen, Patty Griffin, Iron & Wine, Neko Case, Silversun Pickups, The Black Keys, Against Me, and G. Love.
Pleasant surprises: Jakob Dylan is touring (and I can understand his words); also What Made Milwakee Famous, MGMT, and Joe Bonamassa will all be here.
It all kicks off September 26th.
I have my ticket, but Al’s Bash is that same weekend… Decisions decisions.
Don’t forget Weekend At Mookie’s in just over two weeks. I got Friday off, so I am ready to go. I should have taken Monday off as well…
